I was watching my two daughters at gym club today and one of the activities involved gently jogging around. My youngest was at the front and continually looked behind her checking for her sister. I turned to my wife and posed the question that our youngest was perhaps not a leader! Her response was that according to her pre-school leader, she was most definitely a leader. It got me thinking about the old question of nature or nurture and group dynamics and whether leaders are born or created. Personally I am absolutely in the space of nurture and the impact on us of our environment. I do however feel a strong sense that nature prepares us.

I am very much a people person and fundamentally believe that it is the people in an organisation that make it a success or otherwise. I thrive in teams - creating, developing and galvanising individuals into coordinated teams is my forte, and I love a fast-paced dynamic environment too, where great people challenge and ultimately deliver high-quality results for demanding customers. I am a passionate advocate for the customer, and hold a firm belief that in the customer economy, World-Class performance is 2table-stakes" to retain (and grow) the customer base.

I am a motivator and inspire people to be the best that they can be through coaching and mentoring. One of my favourite "quotes" is Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a beer in one hand, shouting "Whoo, what a ride!!" Views here are 100% my own. https://grahambunting.com/findme/ View all posts by Graham Bunting
