Rio chief focuses on collaboration to achieve global goals

Rio Tinto Iron Ore chief executive Sam Walsh delivered a thought provoking presentation this morning with a central theme around business success being built on collaboration and communication.
Mr Walsh - who noted he was a avid reader of our Daily Business Alerts - unveiled the essence of what he'd learned during a 35-year career spanning the global industries of car manufacturing and mining at a WA Business News Success & Leadership Series speech entitled No man is an island - how lessons from a global career drive decision-making.
In brief, Mr Walsh said the simple guides were
- Be bold, set clear plans and then measure, measure, measure to make sure your initiatives are actually being implemented
- Bring a global mindset to your organisation and make sure it is adopted so the world does not leave you behind
- Constantly innovate, collaborate and regenerate, or you will wither and die
- Listen to your heart and head and lead with practical commonsence not untried theory
