Seek Wise Counsel
Tahoe Chamber | July 6, 2022 | Monthly CEO Message
Making beneficial, effective decisions on behalf of others requires the advice of wise counsel. This means finding a group of mentors and experts who know the journey. A survey from The UPS Store found, “70 percent of small business owners that receive mentoring survive for five years or more, double the success rate of those that do not receive mentoring.”
Business ownership and leadership require a constant hunger for knowledge and the desire to be better for the organization and the people it impacts. By learning through others’ experiences and decision-making models, your decisions along the way become considerably smoother and more distinguishable.
Today, technology also provides instant, infinite mentorship from some of the world’s top business leaders. When it comes to sharpening decision-making skills or leadership skills in general, there is a plethora of inexpensive or free knowledge out there to explore through books, videos, online courses, and business podcasts. Setting aside time for development and continued growth helps people find the guidance they need for becoming great leaders capable of bringing value to others.
Tahoe Chamber will continue to take a lead role in being a Convener, Catalyst and Champion for workforce development.
