VALUES

LEADERSHIP

As a leader, I believe in giving my team a lot of space to grow, make decisions and suggestions. A conducive work environment is a fluid one with all members free to work and set their own goals and deadlines. I serve as I lead, providing support and advice when necessary.

This autonomy, though, requires that my team be composed of people who can handle them selves and manage their time well, that each member have the right knowledge, set of skills and are able to self-motivate to keep efficiency high.I find that by focusing on making the final decisions while trusting the team I selected with the creative process keeps us all highly engaged in all projects and decisions, with each of us having a sense of ownership that can only be had if one truly contributes and does not just blindly follow. Keeping the team happy and satisfied is another high priority for me, because happy people work better and are much more productive.

But none of these would be possible if the team members appreciate you and trust your knowledge and skills enough to trust you as their mentor and look up to you as their leader. This, I believe, is the key to leadership.

 

PEOPLE

They are the engine, the heart of the operation, taking care of them is the ABC of success. Their development, work environment, support and general well-being and contentment is key. I prioritise getting the right people, as I believe that when I do, 80% of the work is already done.

 

CREATIVITY

I define creativity as the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. It involves two processes: thinking and producing. It it also helps if one recognizes alternatives or possibilities that can help in solving problems and is able to communicate with others well to share ideas and perspectives. Remember if you have ideas, but do not act on them, you are imaginative, but not creative.

 

PASSION

Passion is the driving a force behind success and happiness, it becomes almost boundless energy if you do work that excites you. But always remember, if passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.

 

RESPECT

Everything one creates or use; every person one works with, interacts with, either by his efforts or by his service, everyone deserves the same amount of respect you would give to the person you would not want to disappoint the most: yourself.

 

MISSION

Share my passion for innovation and design to the world by creating efficient and world-class and ground-breaking hospitality models that maximize efficiency, creativity and customer satisfaction while maintaining respect for all levels of stakeholders, from the customers, staff, suppliers and investors.
