AT the age of 28, I found myself heading up a division of an insurance company, which was part of General Electric, in the U.S. As the only woman on the leadership team and 10 years junior to most of the others, I felt out of my depth. My mentor gave me the best advice, that leadership is about getting the best out of people. You need to give up control in order to get it. Don’t rush in pretending to know everything. Be humble, be yourself, listen and learn.
