Frank Tirelli has spent his life doing things he loves—confidently and relentlessly. This has allowed him to blaze his own trail, taking on challenges as the former COO of myCFO, former CEO of Herbalife, and former CEO of Deloitte Italy.
Frank and Deloitte Advisory’s Mike Kearney discuss why certain types of leaders thrive in the face of adversity; the need to help people identify and develop the strengths that will help them succeed; and the importance of communication, transparency, and honesty. Frank also shares his five attributes for success:
- Be passionate
- Have a written plan (not a to-do list)
- Be 100 percent focused
- Be disciplined (because some days, the passion’s just not there)
- Develop the ability to overcome adversity
“You will find that the people who tend to attain their success are those who can deal with adversity.”
