Josh says that you will be forced to look for the best solution every time you have a problem or face a new client. He states that this will grow your team, business, and reputation.

 

 

  • Speak less and listen more: Josh says that there is a reason why you were created with two ears and one mouth. The reason is for you to listen more and talk less. He says that your words will have more power if you speak less. This will also make you appear authoritative, and people will want to listen to what you have to say.

 

  • Ensure you have a balance in your life: Josh says that you have to balance your health, home life, and wealth. He states that you can have all the money in the world, but that is not enough.

Tony Petrello : Maths Genius Steering The Wheel Of Nabors

Anthony Petrello, or as his friends know him, Tony, is the CEO, chairman of board of directors and the president of Nabors Industries.

Nabors is the world’s leading offshore natural gas and oil drilling company. They also rank among the leading energy companies of the world. With nearly 30 vessels to support their offshore drilling activities, Nabors is a force to reckon with. Since Tony joined Nabors, the company has continued to expand in new and greater dimensions. Under his leadership, the company has acquired nearly 1,000 rigs within and beyond the United States boundaries.

Tony took over the CEO position from the former boss of Nabors, Eugene M. Isenberg. He has been with the company for about 26 years now. When he first joined the company, he worked as the CEO and a member of the board of directors. Soon enough, members of the board agreed to have him serving as the deputy chairman. Eight years later, Tony was further promoted to president of the company. And in the year 2012, exactly one year later, he was elected by the board to serve as its chairman.

When Tony joined Nabors, he had left his decorated law career at Baker & McKenzie. Having graduated with a law degree from the Harvard University, you would have guessed that he would excel in the legal industry. However, being the math’s genius that he was, you would tell that the Technical industry cards would be in his favor. And even though his college buddies say that they wouldn’t have expected such success from him, given that he loved to have fun, we can say that he has outdone himself. Today, he is rated as one of the best paid CEOs in the energy industries.

Other than being in charge of Nabors and its local and international operations, Tony finds satisfaction in helping the undeserved. He seats on the Trustees board of Texas hospital. He and his wife contribute towards a research being done for neurological disorders. They hope that their daughter, who has cerebral palsy, and others like her can get a cure and get to enjoy a normal life.

Tips to Success by Josh Verne

The Tips

Be a LeaderMake Every Situation A Win-Win SituationListen More, Speak LessAchieve Balance in Your LifeFigure out Your PassionsAbout the Man Himself

  • Be a Leader: Don’t be the guy who sits and gives orders, be the guy taking charge and giving orders. Putting your team before yourself as well as getting involved with the work that needs to be done will give you respect from your team. And when your team respects you, anything can be accomplished.
  • Make Every Situation A Win-Win Situation: Not everything has to be Win – Lose. You don’t always have to accept a deal or follow a plan of action that will be Win -Lose. With enough thinking, there can always be a Win – Win outcome.
  • Listen More, Speak Less: There’s not enough listening going on these days and it just leads to problems popping up. By doing this, you will show you care and understand others and whenever you speak your words will have more weight behind them.
  • Achieve Balance in Your Life: Many people will say balance in one’s life is important, because it is. A common misunderstanding about balance is it’s all about the time you put and spread out among different subjects. What’s actually correct however is that balance should be defined as the progress made in the areas of your life.
  • Figure out Your Passions: Passion is what everyone needs, something to make a person want to get up each and every morning, makes a person want to work hard, and keep them going. Few successful people don’t have a passion while the vast majority of successful people do.
