Lampard thrived under Mourinho as a player at Stamford Bridge and revealed he picked up managerial tips from the Portuguese as well as others during his glittering career.
He said: "I did take tips and ideas from all my managers.
"I try to be myself but with influences from them. Some managers are more people-managers, some tactical-managers.
"I've gone out of my way not to make any parallels with my era at Chelsea and anyone else's.
"I make decisions that will help the club. A lot of those decisions are small decisions and you can't get them all right.
"At a big club you have to make them. That's why you're entrusted with the job.
"I'm making decisions that I hope are for the benefit of the club because I'm trying to grow a group here that have a good spirit, focus and dedication to where we want to go."
