Flipping through Internet pages I came across a brief statement from NFL coach Tony Dungy on the best advice he ever received. He said that it came from Chuck Noll, the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, when Dungy joined the staff in 1981. It dealt with leadership. Noll told him that leadership was helping others do better and that you did that by connecting with everyone under you and finding out what makes them tick. By getting them to do better the group did better. Good advice, especially for a coach, who has a limited number of people to work with on a daily basis.
That clip got me to thinking and wondering. How would others answer that question? So I would like to hear from you, be it personal, business, social or whatever. What has been the best piece of advice you have received in your life and how has it made a difference? Who knows, your piece of advice may inspire someone else. Leave a comment and share that valuable lesson.
