Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunities. It is an engine for growth and a force for positive change. It is not something you can just tell people to do or to be. You have to provide an environment that encourages and supports an enterprise mindset. At Octapharma, everyone is part of the entire organism, and not just a small cog in the system.
For me, the ultimate goal every day is to do at least one thing better, faster, stronger than yesterday. It is important not only to achieve your own goals but also to collaborate with others and inspire them.
Often, the simplest way to a quick result is to give a direct task to a person, but that doesn’t develop their self-sufficiency or their ability to think and work ‘outside the box’. Self-sufficiency comes along with taking responsibility for results – and that is what I am trying to implement and encourage.
