Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“I’d admit that there’s no guide that explains exactly what it’s like to lead and that no one gets it right the first time. You don’t mess up a couple times and then skip your way to success. You mess up, get a little closer to achieving something, and then make another mistake that puts you steps back again. Sometimes you make the same mistake twice. Sometimes you feel like you want to give up. Sometimes you go to bed crying. These are the things I wish someone had told me when I was first starting out. They’re things I wish more leaders would get comfortable acknowledging. Because let’s face it, leadership is really, really hard. And I’ve learned that if it’s not hard, chances are you’re doing it right.”

–Kristen Hadeed, from “Permission To Screw Up” (Penguin, 2017).
