Minethia Markman

Head of Culture

The qualities I admire most in friends are honesty and loyalty.  Friendships are strengthened through loyalty – in good times and in bad times.  Friends should also motivate one another to excel and be each other's cheerleaders.

I admire Walt Disney for the way that he dealt with failure, realising that it gives one more life experience and therefore he faced his challenges and thus developed strength.  This also taught others to not give up on their dreams – it is never too late to try something new. 

Leaders should have the ability to navigate themselves and their team through difficult times. They need to be flexible; to roll with life's punches. Leaders should also enforce the phrase "service above self" and strive to create environments where everyone can excel and where they can be themselves.

I have learnt that "it is better to become exhausted from the hard times that breed success stories, than to be well rested from achieving absolutely nothing."  After facing adversity and then later seeing the end result, you will realise that the blood, sweat and tears that you have put in were worth it.
