The erstwhile Business Unit Leader of the GS SUSTAIN Team within Goldman Sachs in Europe is one of the most outstanding leader I had the opportunity to work with.
While he has subsequently moved on to set up his own entrepreneurial venture, I continue to maintain regular dialogue with him and benefit from his guidance and mentoring.
During my more than 2.5 years of professional and over 3 years overall association with him, some of the qualities which we shared are:
Being a leader: leading by example, investing in people, "WE" more important than "I", mentoring
set examples of model behavior and adapt if others show a better way
motivate people to consider each challenge as an opportunity to grow, learn and engage
team takes precedence over personal goals, inculcate and encourage this ethos
mentor colleagues by motivating them, asking the right questions, guiding them and giving honest feedback
providing technical assistance, emotional support and vision
