I use my strengths to everyone’s benefit. I support others to develop and use their strengths. I involve my team in decision making. I collaborate with others to achieve the best results. I focus on what people do right.


I treat people with respect and consideration. I treat people fairly and equally. I praise in public and criticise in private. I listen to learn and understand. I lead through relationship, not position.


I lead by example. I am consistent in my behaviour. I am the change I want to see in others. I stick to my commitments. I turn plans and promises into actions.


SOILL has built a well-respected, premium brand with an ever-expanding basket of products under its retail brand name, B-well.
