Glenn: What’s been your biggest leadership challenge to date, Beth, and the key lessons learned?

Beth: There’s no doubt about it that great people make great businesses and one of my biggest challenges has been about having the right team. I don’t just mean technically, I mean a group of people driving the business on your behalf that share common goals and values and my biggest learning at one stage was when I had a brilliantly technical person that didn’t quite demonstrate the values of the business and that meant that the group of people were misaligned and weren’t as effective as they could be. It took me too long to remove that person out of the business because they were very good at what they did.
