Richard Rierson | Leading Starts With One’s Self

Discover A More Satisfying Approach To Leadership


We dig deep into our archive to share with you once again this short yet inspiring and full of wisdom interview with the former Marine Corps officer and now leadership coach, Richard Rierson.examine

“If you want to be an impactful leader, an influential leader, just pour your life into somebody not expecting anything in return…just add value to somebody else’s life…”Richard Rierson

To level up your leadership, Richard gives us this advice – that we add value to somebody without expecting or waiting for anything in return. In fact, when we do this, we still get something back and that is a different kind of joy in our soul knowing that we have truly helped someone.

“No matter what your situation is you can choose to lead from where you’re at.”Richard Rierson

It is Richard’s wish that “everybody would look at themselves as leaders”. If we spend 80% of our time focusing on getting our inside right, then we will be able to give the people around us the freedom to do the same, they will feel empowered to do just as what we’ve done.

I guess to summarize it, it’s not about us. It’s about equipping other people to be so successful and that can be considered as a personal achievement.

What You Will Learn:

  • Lessons from your past experiences that you can apply to what you are doing now
  • The meaning of ‘Leaders Eat Last’
  • How to level up your leadership
  • How to help others become leaders too
  • If you so choose, you can lead from where you’re at
