An exclusive interview with Exeleon magazine.
What according to you makes one a transformational leader? How do you integrate the same thought into your leadership?
For me, being a transformational leader means knowing who you are and what you stand for. In real estate, I’m known for providing value to others first without any expectations. Those who interact with me learn that they can count on me as a source of value and a solution provider to their needs. When you go out into the world leading in this way, you set a good example that people feed off of.
Talk to us about your growing up years. What is your earliest memory as a leader that you can remember?
Throughout middle school I developed major behavioral issues and could not keep my impulses at bay. I would disrupt classes and often get suspended. My behavior led me to repeat the 6th grade. This brings me to my earliest memory of being a leader because I had decided to try out for the 8th grade basketball team to help curb my enthusiasm. Many had said that I should join the team because I was tall for my age. While I was not a very good player, making this decision on my own defined what a leader has to do-to go against the grain in hopes for a positive outcome. Fast forward to the moment where I had grown tired of where I was in life, I had to become my own leader to change the path I was on for a better future. Little did I know that others were watching what I was doing and gaining inspiration from my actions.
