  • You create a safe space, which is encouraging, non-judgmental and honest. This enables people to take initiatives and risks.

  • You apologize when you realise your remarks may have been perceived as offensive, even if that was not your intention.
  • Life is too short for work to be just work. There is always room for fun and spontaneity.
  • To sum up, you are kind and benevolent. There is no tolerance here for misplaced ego and toxic work relationships.
