The Steward of Creativity and Negotiation
Brisbane, Thornton, New South Wales, Australia
Keith Rowley, from Sydney Business Web, holds a unique perspective on work-life balance, which he describes as a “myth propagated by those who resent having to work for a living.” Rowley, a technical expert who later pursued an MBA, encourages a mix of skills, arguing that a good leader needs more than just engineering skills. He advocates for negotiation skills and not taking passing fads as reality. Rowley points out that the industry has become overly defined, not allowing for enough creativity and gut instinct. His solution: focus on professionalism, not fleeting perks..
