Visionary leadership is one thing, but nurturing and executing that vision takes mastery in itself. Alongside innovative practices and a strong international trade strategy, good leadership is an integral feature of modern business success.

What is good leadership?

Definitions are broad across the board. Sunil Kant Munjal of Hero Motocore believes that it’s about “demonstrating vision” whilst Dr Eben Upton of the Raspberry Pi foundation believes that there is real value in creating a culture that frees up individuals to work towards a common goal.

Motivation is like Vitamin C – you need to give it in little doses every single day rather than one big dollop, because that’s what really gets people excited about what they’re doing. Motivation translates to the bottom line – it’s as simple as that.
