In her chat with Julian, Donna shares some of the lessons she has learned in her various leadership roles, and how she views leadership as a position of influence rather than that of a directive authority. She also discusses some of the challenges she faces working with an executive team to implement cultural change within the organisation – as well as the rewards that come with it!
