What are the most compelling qualities of great leaders?

Great leaders show trust in the people surrounding them, they have courage and will lead by example. They will be transparent and have their teams working towards common goals.

When you face challenges, what encourages you?

The learning process and the result of that process. It is always giving to be able to learn new things, especially when you work with evolving technologies. It is a powerful feeling to have overcome those obstacles.

Do you think that diversity and gender equality are already a reality?

Diversity and gender equality has become much better than 50, 10, 5 years ago, but there is still a lot of work to do in this area. Diversity is always positive in a work environment as it encourages the employees to understand different mindsets and cultures. This is something that gives us more tools to strive for equality on a daily basis. 

Who inspires you?

I have many people in my immediate surroundings that inspire me because of their resilience and courage to go against the norm and do what they want to in life. People that listen actively to others and set the objective of any project or job ahead of ego and personal interests.
