Watch Professor S Randall Peterson talk exclusively to successful people about who inspires them and the great advice they’ve received

 

It’s commonly thought that the decisions you make in your first few months in a leadership role will have an impact on whether you ultimately succeed or fail. Taking advice on the road to success is critical. Great leaders surround themselves with people they trust to provide advice and guidance.

Who do leaders turn to for counsel? What makes some guidance timeless? How can you apply someone’s advice to your own set of personal values?

Professor Randall S Peterson, Academic Director of the Leadership Institute, uncovers the pearls of wisdom that have been invaluable to Robert MacLeod, CEO of Johnson Matthey – recently named the top chemicals business in Britain’s Most Admired Companies 2016 – and Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, Founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer. We also gain insights from Carole White, Co-Founder of Premier Model Management, and Paul McGinley, Europe Captain for the 2014 Ryder Cup.

Pay heed to good advice whether it’s from the business world or not, says Professor Peterson. “Pearls of wisdom from those at the top are invaluable to any wannabe leader. Listen up for some gems.” 

Take a look at our first film series featuring Dame Nemat “Minouche” Shafik, the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, Alex Gorsky, Chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson, David Pyott, former CEO of Botox maker Allergan, and Michael Bolingbroke, CEO of Inter Milan.
