Eagerly looking forward to doing great things and giving back to our #Office 365 and #SharePoint end-user community. Those who know me well, know my passion for sharing, enabling, educating, supporting and promoting self-sufficiency for those that need support and help(SharePoint/ Office365 or otherwise 🙂 ).

Making a positive and lasting impact in the lives of folks that need help and reach out to us as well as those that do but can’t – means a LOT to me. The story you shared with me was truly inspirational Rima, you are fabulous and amazing for what you do.  Hi5 you rockstar you!! While I hope nobody has to go through tough times, if ever they do, and if we can be of assistance, I truly hope to be there and do all that I can to assist. This is going to be a great journey and one I am eagerly looking forward to take.

Truly an honor and thank YOU BOTH (Mack and Rima)!

Being a leader and what it means – Inspiration and leadership style

The UK’s most powerful women share their experiences, advice and philosophy for a successful working life.

To a very large degree, several of their statements resonated with me for, I believe in those as well and strive to apply those exact strategies in my life and work(they aren’t really two different entities for me) to a great extent.
Listing below some of my observations(literal quotes most) on what they stated, which I loved and will repetitively read and continue to practice!

  • Through passion, perseverance and determination you can achieve anything.

  • Its really important that when you leave a room, people say good things about you and the choices you made for them and they appreciate your integrity. You loose your integrity, you loose everything.

  • Moments when you realize what you are not good at, than what you are. You may not be a great writer,artist,developer “but your best skill on job is in actually supporting the people. Those are the moments that are more seminal and leads you onto a track which allows you to be good at what you do

  • Take a leap (of faith) in the dark and do what you think you can’t do

  • Leave a situation always better than the way you found it

  • I am anyone’s equal and no one’s superior” be braver, confident and repetitive but not chippy!  I live by this as well

  • Obstacles are but feedback & opportunities

  • Building something that is bigger and more important than you

  • “Have a standard that you don’t go beneath”

  • Repeated discussions with team on how to approach a situation and make it better
