Good Advice for Leaders

By CHRIS IRISH
Scottsdale Leadership Executive Director

Throughout my life I have been blessed to have many caring and strategic mentors. Some of these relationships were planned. Others were nurtured by friends and colleagues that were kind enough to answer my many phone calls seeking their advice and counsel. I’d like to share some of their wisdom…

No matter how you feel – get up, dress up, and show up
When in doubt, take a deep breath and the next small step forward
Ask for advice, it is usually free
Ask for help, it makes you stronger
Make peace with your mistakes or you will repeat them
Share what you know and you’ll learn so much more
You can’t lead unless others chose to follow
No matter if a situation is good or bad, the situation will change
Always observe leadership – the good, the bad and the ugly
Life is too short to waste time being angry
Attitude is everything
Believe in yourself and others will too
The best is yet to come

If you’d like to share some advice – I’m interested.

  1. Determine what is important now.
    Living core values is more important than having them.
    There is a reason the windshield is larger than the rear-view mirrors – look ahead.
    Focus on what you have the power to change, not what you don’t.
    If you believe business is about relationships, you need to make building them your business.

    From 50 Cent’s Book “Fearless”: make the most of what you have, turn all obstacles into openings, look for turning points, and move before you are ready.
