The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are currently hosting a podcast and talking to leadership figures from across the nation to understand what it means to be a leader in Britain and Northern Ireland today.
Having founded and grown a successful Video Telematics company, Glen Mullins, director and founder of Vision Unique Equipment, was invited to appear on an episode of the podcast with host Matthew O’Neill. You can listen to the podcast in full by clicking on either of the links below.
The podcast aims to give aspiring leaders, both current and upcoming, the opportunity to gain valuable insight into the minds of prominent leader figures, as well as get to know how their industry works.
Matthew O’Neill commented, “Hosting a show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.”
So, what does the word ‘leader’ mean to you?
This was just one of the questions that Glen was asked during the podcast. Glen believed that adaptability was a crucial attribute in the growth of VUE’s success. He continued to say that he never anticipated the leader that he would evolve into, nor was it his goal when founding the company. However, as the company grew, his leadership style has constantly evolved from having to learn on the job.
Glen goes on to say that while some people are more natural leaders than others, leadership skills are something you develop from experience. The most important aspect is giving a vision to your team, the ability to deliver, and guidance when needed.
Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, “I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Matthew O’Neill is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry works and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.”
