"Work on relationships, not schedules.
Work on effectiveness, not efficiency.
If you know where you are going in life,
it does not matter how long it takes to get there."
Stephen Covey

I spent the afternoon with the Leadership Team looking at how we continue to build and develop a brilliantly effective team to manage the opportunities that lie ahead. It's strange but focusing on the people is not as easy as you think because there are always things happening, new opportunities, new challenges and there are simply too many distractions. However hard I try, I find it impossible to spread myself around enough to engage and talk to all the colleagues who are doing such a great job here in Leeds. We need discipline and focus to achieve a higher level of trust and to really appreciate and celebrate the contribution of others.
