Biography: Stephen Rae

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”

Mark Twain


To triumph as a leader is to engage and connect with everyone you lead. You make a difference within your organisation and feel empowered by empowering those around you.

You take responsibility for your own actions.You are an authentic leader and by being authentic you lead by example in setting the right behaviours. And you want to leave behind a sustainable leadership legacy with values that others can build upon and take forward.



Undertaking emerald leader sometimes requires you to take risks, be brave, courageous, and face your own fears. It also means that you allow yourself to be taken out of your comfort zone and be stretched so you can grow as a person.

You commit to taking action because you understand this journey will create lasting and meaningful change and gets you to where you need to be in your career as a leader to inspire others to follow you.

All the so-called secrets of succes will not work unless you do.


“Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday with today.”
