The EveryDay Leader: Iron Sharpens Iron

I met with a colleague today over lunch – I am always very grateful to have the time to meet with her and to have another to talk with over general work issues.  I remember as a kid, always hearing that…

Iron sharpens iron. 

I am not sure I really understood what the phrase met….until I got older and heard the whole phrase:



Now, I am always grateful to learn from others! I recently read a new book, by Brian Sooy, called Raise Your Voice.  If you have not had a chance to read it – I highly recommend it.

As I was meeting with my friend today at lunch I was able to share with her some of the ideas I had just picked up from Brian’s book, great ideas, that not only helped me, but now has helped her as she is navigating through some of her struggles with her small business.


One of those ideas I shared today from this book was the reminder for us to have ONE voice in our companies or non-profits for all to hear….one clear voice.  This is such a simple idea, and yet as we grow, can be so hard to maintain. 

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another”.

Learning is something we do as everyday leaders.  We read, we learn, we share, and we help each other.

It’s what we do.

What are you reading today?  Find a good book.  And add to your list, Raise Your Voice, by Brian Sooy.

Everyday leaders, intentionally learn to be our best selves, and to make a difference in the lives of those around us!
