This story is brought to you by Daniel Souza, Location Head and Development Manager, Latin America.
“As an aspiring leader, one will eventually learn that ‘leadership is not about you.’ In 2015, Harvard Business Review ranked Novo Nordisk CEO, Lars Sørensen, as the top performing CEO. He refused to take the credit, saying that he’s ‘leading a team that is collectively creating one of the world’s best-performing companies. That’s different from being the world’s best-performing CEO.’
In my journey as a leader at SAP, it was also never about me. It has always been about the team, and every individual in the team. Paying attention to the people, listening to them, understanding what is important to them has always been a priority for me. This is probably the most important ingredient for a high performing team – and if you make this a priority you can collectively achieve extraordinary results for the business.” #developamazingtalent
