Brilliant colleagues are incredibly optimistic, positive, creative and intelligent people...

I know because I am surrounded by these people... Dirk, Ros, Pat, Carol, Rehana, Dorothy, Martin, Jackie and Shirley are all good examples but it reaches down to the Team Leaders and down throughout Education Leeds, Leeds City Council and into many of the organisations and partners we work with. These are people who focus on solutions, not problems. They possess a compelling vision for their piece of the jigsaw puzzle. They spend most of their time working on goals to achieve the vision. They persist at things and take total responsibility for successes and failures.

Whatever you are doing...
1. You have to be optimistic.
"Optimism Fuels Our Success.
Pessimism never won any battle."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

2. You have to be positive.
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

3. You have to be creative.
“There is no security in this life.
here is only opportunity.”
General Douglas MacArthur

4. You have to be intelligent
"To the dull mind, all of nature is leaden.
To the illuminated mind, the whole world sparkles with light."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

So whatever you do, above all, be optimistic, positive, creative and intelligent.
