Leadership career paths!

Leadership career paths!A great leader should listen and think with a
beginner’s mind.

They have the power to make choices that will have

infinite consequences. The choice to empower people
and the voice to stand up for them.

Dr. Mark Goulston -"Listen and be curious, don’t just
listen, listen into the person and feel into them."

The leadership career path forum was a purpose-built discussion with renowned leaders from the hospitality industry.

The forum was held at Gulfhost 2017 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

I always love to listen and learn how leaders inspire the people they interact with day in and day out. They have the power to influence, make or break budding great leaders.

They have the power to make choices that will have infinite consequences. The choice to empower people and the voice to stand up for them.

These leaders discussed their strengths and the challenges they faced on their leadership path. They shared ideas and discussed the different paths they took to get to where they are right now. They shared important success tips and gave the formula to become great leaders :)

The formula = Passion + Purpose + Hardwork.


The leaders in the forum - Mr. David Wilson, GM Palm Jumeirah, Mr. Philippe Montaubin, GM IBIS, Mr. Puneet Baijal, GM Al Bustan, Ms. Maria Tullberg, GM Radisson Blu and the facilitator, Mr. Rupprecht Queitsch CEO, INHOCO.


The interesting part of the discussion was the question, why there was just one woman leader among the other four in the forum. Maria’s answer portrayed the challenges women leaders face in the industry. She discussed how she overcame those challenges. Her passion filled self and help from some mentors she looked upon for guidance. She shared career tips to the women seated in the forum. She proudly said, "Many women leaders are in the making and would be shining soon to make a global change".

All the leaders shared their journey to the top and were proud of what they'd achieved as leaders.Β 

Each leader was unique and shared some valuable advice.


Put time to learn, develop and mentor your team. Experience is like money in the bag, you can lose your job, your car but the experience will take you on to the path of development and successβ€” David Wilson
Have a personal development plan. Always stay conscious of your strengths and the gaps that separate you from your goal. Work on those gaps and exercise your strengths. Have a mentor that you lean on for support and guidance. A mentor/Coach will make you look in places you’ve side stepped on your journey β€” Maria Tullberg

Build trust. Have a work-life balance. Be proactive. Be proud of the choices you make. Choose the right employer.

Work hard and want it. Be aware always! The environment you work in, needs to be given prime importance. The environment plays a pivotal role on your path to leadership. β€”Philippe Montaubin.
Choose according to your passion and purpose. Match your job with who you are as a person β€” Puneet Baijal.

See, Listen, Impact people by contributing to their growth and learning from failures.


Some important words picked up from the conversation β€” Family, Passion, Diplomacy, Strategy, Learning, Trust, Purpose, and Resilience.


A Great Leader is a shining star displaying brightness in the lives of the people they meet. The light they shed must let others shine on!

"Segmenting them just right can win the election for you" I guess we see a living example of the same. All this knowledge and understanding should be embedded in the minds of youngsters right from when they start deciding their career path. It will result in them dealing with the obstacles that pop up when they rise, instead of compartmentalizing them the way we've been taught to do, as Cyndi said. Creating effective leaders right from the scratch, as we are placed in a leadership role in different stages of our lives. Thank you, Harvey, for taking the time to explain this so well. I understand this so well and will communicate the same with those that cross my path or look up to me for advice on the same :)

I don't think you're wrong and probably dead on point. Leadership today is bogged down in reconciling self talk that should have been thought through actionable items presented. My personal opinion, this is why the coaching, consulting industry is growing so fast. We are struggling with so many self thought ideas on the table at one time. Clearly we expect this from our budding leaders, but from our senior staff, not so much. Politically all we here is self talk that doesn't inspire confidence in the voting population. But it does help to polarize issues and divide the voters. Segmenting them just right can win the election for you.

Thank you, Harvey Lloyd, infact I can wrap my head around this much better now. And it makes alot of sense as well. I can imagine the tension self-talk can cause in a team with an Alpha players. Learning how to formulate actions into self-talk into conclusions may be the need of the hour. I guess this is the cause for chaos among political and some corporate leadership if I'm not wrong.

In some applications i can listen to others think out loud. Being authentic as the leader and exposing self talk can create havoc an open playing field for alpha players. From my self talk i can facilitate discussions and draw from the strength of others while leading from an affirmative position. My top players i expect them to take their own positions, weak and strong, and formulate a discussion of purpose. If not be quiet until you can. This may sound harsh on the surface but when meeting on delicate or major issues it's time for folks to put to task their executive thinking with their internal dialogue driving. I don't have this formula for our managers. They are leaders in the making and require facilitation of learning how to formulate actions into self talk into conclusions. I can only support this through a scenario where you are with your doctor over a possible serious diagnosis. I don't want your self talk. I need your years of experience, education to formulate the best plan of attack. I can offer no feedback to your self talk. I'm not a doctor. In high level corporate meetings, regardless of size, we need self talk to be a guide to our thoughts, not distributed amongst the group.

Yes dear Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee each of them were from different countries with different thoughts on leadership. But they all agreed that passion with purpose, the desire to succeed, experience/exposure to different cultures led them where they are today! Maria's career path was an interesting as she moved from a Finance into Hospitality without any experience in hospitality with just the zeal and motivation to lead and achieve success. I sat at the forum to see and learn, how these leaders have influenced the people around them but I've heard just one side of the story. It would be great to interact with the teams, these leaders have led and see how they've impacted change and brought about positivity in their leadership styles.

Self-talk is based on conclusions, directions, and recommendations. I think that is precisely what I read from articles written by some leaders I've interacted with. Thank you, Harvey Lloyd, for throwing more light on self-talk. I think self-talk can be classified differently person to person, leader to leader. #6 Cyndi, I will practice more as this has resulted in clarity - "The more you practice allowing the 'space' for disturbances to rise up and pass through you, the more clear you will become"

"Self talk should not show up outside of your head, but rather conclusions, directions or recommendations from the self talk should show up only." Agreed Harvey Lloyd...lest we be considered a bit daft;-) Effective leadership roles require one to be grounded in one's 'self' first...so as to have a firm foundation to operate from...unfinished business always creeps up to haunt, so make sure to keep your ducks in order... You simply cannot be an effective problem solver for others if you have not done that for yourself;-)

Some great thoughts and you made think about the chatter Cyndi wilkins discusses. I would think that with the advent of social media we have become a thinking out loud type of communicator. I would also imagine that the higher you get within an organization and the pace/size of decision become complex, the expectation changes. Self talk should not show up outside of your head, but rather conclusions, directions or recommendations from the self talk should show up only. So this is not a lost point. WIth each leadership role advancement the self talk out loud should be diminishing and the assessment part should be growing in presentation.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Very interesting forum. The diversity of quotes is very rich. Thank you

How true it is...There is more 'chatter' going on in one's own mind than the whole world outside of the self...The more you practice allowing the 'space' for disturbances to rise up and pass through you, the more clear you will become...When we deal with the obstacles that pop up when they rise, instead of compartmentalizing them the way we humans tend to do, we will always be ready to write the next chapter as it unfolds in our lives;-)

Cyndi wilkins Thank you, Clarity is exactly what I want to eat for breakfast every day. Cultivating the listening skill within the self by raising one's awareness to what their environment is telling them in any given set of circumstances is challenging with all the noise around but the minute I think about how it will benefit me, the ones around me and the ones I 'm sharing it with, I get Clarity :) It is challenging though to stay focused :)

Clarity comes with focused intent...and an authentic 'listener' has first cultivated this skill within the self by raising one's awareness to what their environment is telling them in any given set of circumstances...Be present...be still...and be stable in one's own mind and body first before you can have any positive influence on others to do the same......you are one of our top leaders in the learning and listening department;-)
