[Ep#397] 10 life and leadership lessons for a better career and personal life

10 life and leadership lessons for a better career and personal life

My guest today says: “Near failure is a much better teacher than actual failure.” 

Joining me today's show is Peter de Silva.

After a 35+ career as a senior executive in financial services, Peter was severed after the merger of TD Ameritrade and Charles Schwab. Subsequently, he has written a book titled Taking Stock.  In the book he imparts his 10 life and leadership lessons from his seat at the table.  

One unique feature is that he uses the Letter of Paul to the Corinthians as a backdrop for a discussion of leadership. Peter concludes that the finest definition of leadership can be found in that biblical passage if you change the words love and it, to leadership.    

On today’s show Peter is going to share: 

  • 10 life and leadership lessons and how to apply them in both your personal and professional life. 
  • His life journey to accept a chronic disease that he has, become more open and vulnerable about it and lead a campaign to find treatments and cures for Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) 
  • Why the 2008 financial crisis was as much a leadership failure as it was a failure of the financial system.
