I cannot emphasise enough how much your own grounding matters as a leader, chef. Your own practice – whatever it might be that grounds you – is so very vital not just in helping you make better decisions, but in getting through the work day that constantly takes you off-centre. I have also witnessed this many times – if you’re all over the place, then the entire team expresses that ‘directionless’ energy.

And if you’re the kind of leader that is a pleasure to work under – open, warm and approachable – then you also have to keep in mind that you simply cannot be all things to all people.
