Inspiring Culture: 5 Elements


Inspirational Leader: 10 Roles

Many Chairman will say he looks at his company like a family and then acts in a way which makes you glad you’re not related!  >>>

I have always pushed Virgin companies to walk the talk on that and ensure everybody feels part of the team >>>

Colleagues should take care of each other, have fun, celebrate success, learn by failure, look for reasons to praise not to criticise, communicate freely and respect each other.

This is doubly important for the Virgin Galactic team in Mojave, where we are busy creating the world’s first commercial spaceline. The team spirit and sense of togetherness instilled in such a young, innovative group is really inspiring to see.

My daughter Holly and I visited Mojave recently and, as well getting hands-on with the business of building spaceships, were able to spend time with some really inspiring people. Even in a space-age company aiming for the stars, it is your staff who are the key to success.

If you’re in search of jobs, they may just have a space for you on one of the most exciting teams in the universe. Head over to Virgin Galactic to see if you will boldly go for any of their current vacancies.

And remember, we’re all only human – at least until Virgin Galactic start employing life-forms from other planets!
