It’s a real joy whenever I meet a person that shines with a real warm heart, aware and honest about own emotions.
Silje is a curious girl. New on the professional scene and despite being a fun and more than a bit crazy, she first came across as withholding herself. Underneath a softer exterior, there is a turbo charged engine. She has a lot more power, a lot more ability than she first lets on.
But that is about to change. Brendan and I are working in a project together with Silje, and it is interesting to see how she is gradually realizing her potential. She is one of those people that I can at first sight say “Yes, this is a real executive potential”. Silje has Purpose – Awareness, great personal values and a desire to do good. She has Ability – Competence and Resourcefulness, while the third component is the one lacking behind; Confidence. And Opportunity… well, with Purpose and Ability like this, she can create Opportunity whenever she wants.
It’s fun to be able to inspire confidence in a person that really has the rest of the package. Sometimes the person needs only be reminded of their greatness.
