My Favorite Mistake: 5: Billy Taylor on Not Adhering to the Standard in Operations Leadership

Retired Goodyear executive, consultant, speaker entrepreneur, and CEO

Show notes:

My guest for Episode #5 is Billy Ray Taylor, a retired Goodyear executive and now the founder and CEO of his firm, LinkedXL.

In today’s episode, Billy talks about his “favorite mistake” in which he was “compromising on the standard” early in his career as a leader. “What were the standards for leadership?” he asks. How did mentors and his leaders help him learn the importance of maintaining standards? He then transitioned from being the student to being the teacher.

Billy Taylor: “What you accept, you cannot change. What you tolerate, you can never change.”
