Leaders Speak


Dr. Terry Creissen

Managing Director, India, People Combine-Nord Anglia Education India

1. What is your personal approach to making a Great Workplace?
The best organizations are built on a set of values that support decision-making at every level. When we have a values-driven organization, we focus on doing the right things, for the right reasons, at the right time. Accepting that we are different requires leaders to be flexible about how we lead others and find the best ways to motivate them to be the best version of themselves. Working with us should be challenging as well as fun. We need to know when to focus and when to relax. We are not perfect and we all make mistakes, so the ability to listen and respond positively to concerns, ideas and learn from others is central to creating a positive culture in the workplace.

2. What are the top 2 benefits you see of creating a Great Workplace?
- Staff are motivated to work hard because they want to do the best job they can – intrinsic motivation is the key to improved performance.
- Staff enjoy the challenges they face and approach them with the aim of conquering even the toughest obstacles in their way.

3. What are your top people priorities?
Make sure staff are valued as individuals so that they enjoy their work and have time to be with their friends and family. Achieving the right balance is easy when working is enjoyable and not a chore.

4. How has your association with Great Place to Work® helped your business and strategic goals?
I know that if staff enjoy their work, feel a sense of challenge and are supported when things do not go to plan, they will always achieve more because they believe in what they do.
