9 Ways to Make Sure You Have Effective Meetings | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

We’ve all been there – meetings that have gone on for too long, but nothing has been accomplished. When done right, meetings can make work easier, but more often than not they fill up your schedule and just waste everyone’s time.

Confidence Is Essential When You Really Don't Know What You Are Doing

Confidence Is Essential When You Really Don't Know What You Are Doing | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Nobody has ever been as good at something the first time as they become the hundredth time. To start, you simply have to believe you can do it.
donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): Consciously decide to do one thing that you are not good at. Pretend that you are a complete natural at whatever it is you need to learn. Do it confidently and know that you will make mistakes but more importantly you will learn. Remember, anyone watching will simply think you know what you are doing.

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

You are a twentysomething entrepreneur ready to launch a new business and your emotions are running wild. You're frightened, intimated, and stressed, but at the same time you're enthusiastic and confident about what the future holds.

 

At this point, it's time to step back and listen to those who have been in the same situation.

 

It would be a foolish mistake and a missed opportunity not to value the advice, experience, and knowledge a mentor can offer. Put your ego aside; be a sponge and soak up as much wisdom as possible.

I was in this exact position prior to launching SDC Nutrition Inc. I was confident and probably a little too self-assured, but I knew I had to set aside my ego to listen and absorb as much invaluable advice as possible from my advisers.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Whether you're an established entrepreneur or fresh to the world of entrepreneurship, you should never hesitate to ask for advice from your mentors. Their expertise and perspective may be the knowledge needed to help you and your business succeed and prosper for many years to come.
