“Mentoring may not be a formal relationship but may be more natural and instinctive.”
–  Larry Quinlan, Former Global CIO of Deloitte

I’m happy to have Larry’s insights return for my second book on leadership. We met at an ITSMF meeting several years ago. He held the Global CIO position at Deloitte for over 11 years and has always been very forthcoming with his time as he managed challenges all around the globe. Thanks for your leadership insights Larry and enjoy your upcoming retirement.

Why it’s a Path to Elite Level Leadership

Category : Training

People often ask me why it is a Path to Elite Level Leadership. I tell them, it’s a path because not everyone will travel it. Everyone will not become an Elite Level Leader. It’s like experiencing a:

  • Championship or MVP athlete
  • Award winning performer
  • World-renowned surgeon or economist
  • 5-star chef

Just as a journey may start on a 4-lane highway. It then narrows to a 2-lane road. Eventually, it it is reduced to a path as there are fewer and fewer travelers.

An Update on ‘Tales from the Leadership Front’​ – A Lifetime of Mentoring

Category : Training

I was deep into working on my next leadership book last week when I received a phone call. I was prepared to ignore it or send it to voicemail since I figured it was another car warranty extension or student loan reduction call when I saw my mentor, Jerry O. Williams’s face on my phone. Several years ago, I started adding pictures to my contacts so I don’t even have to read the name of the caller, but I can see their face, even from across the room.
