The Golden Rule: Treat others as you would want them to treat you. Ash made this a foundation of her business and management philosophy.

Praise People to Success. Ash profoundly understood the motivating impact of recognition in the workplace.

The Invisible Sign. Ash imagined that everyone she met was wearing an invisible sign, which she could read. It says: ‘Make me feel important’. She did.

Build with people. Not only did she believe that ‘people are the company’s greatest asset’, but she prioritised developing those people and promoting from within the business.

Be a Follow-through person. Ash thought it vital for people to feel that they can count on you, especially as a leader.

The Speed of the Leader Is the Speed of the Gang. Lead from the front, roll your sleeves up, and get stuck-in. The pace a leader sets is the pace of the organisation.

People will support that which they help to create. If you want to avoid people resisting change, you need to involve them in the design and decision-making processes.

Less stress. Ash’s commitment to work-life balance was underpinned by a belief that stress stifles creativity.
