Loic le Meur, interviewed by Richard Branson
Don’t forget to be extraordinary. Loic says so.
It’s a tough ordeal, to be a leader. There are expectations, prying eyes and an assumption that deliverables should be set and met.
You know it can be done.
And you know you can do it.
There isn’t only one trajectory – being a leader is an individual adventure and course of action. Sometimes, it is upon reflection that you look and see the path you have forged has been one which directs those who follow you. Being a leader is about experience, about failure and about evolution upon the journey to success.
