In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Scott Harrison. Scott is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit charity: water and author of Thirst: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World. They discuss finding clarity by stepping away and why integrity is so important.
“I personally felt like I had let down 180,000 people because I hadn’t figured out how to achieve the success of the previous year or grow.”
“When you are in the day-to-day, often, it is easy as leaders to be hard on ourselves.”
“The thing I am most interested in at the moment, hitting 15 years, is the idea of the long obedience in the same direction or showing up for a long time and allowing amazing things to happen.”
“I would like to personally oversee 100 million people getting clean water before I die, so that keeps me going.”
“We had a million dollars in the bank account that was going straight to build water projects, and we were about to miss payroll in the overhead bank account. We were never going to borrow against that.”
“Find the highest road possible, and take that.”
“Integrity is the number one most valued value for me.”
“How you do something is way more important than what you actually do.”
