读书笔记 - The Ride of a Lifetime (3)

 Lessons to lead by

  • Now more than ever: innovate or die.
  • The relentless of perfection.
  • Take responsibility when you screw up.
  • Be decent to people. Treat everyone with fairness and empathy.
  • True integrity - a sense of knowing who you are and being guided by your own clear sense of right and wrong.
  • Value ability more than experience, and put people in roles that require them.
  • Ask the questions you need to ask, admit without apology what you don't understand.
  • Don't start negatively, and don't start small.
  • If you want innovation, you need to grant permission to fail.
  • Don't be in the business of playing it safe.
  • Don't let ambition get ahead of opportunity.
  • As a leader, if you don't do the work, the people around you are going to know, and you'll lose their respect fast.
  • Good leadership is about helping others be prepared to step into your shoes.
  • A company's reputation is the sum total of the actions of its people and the quality of its products.
  • Handle micromanagement properly.
  • You can't communicate pessimism to the people around you. Pessimism leads to paranoia.
  • Optimism emerges from faith in yourself and in the people who work for you. It's about believing in your and others' abilities.
  • With enough thoughtfulness and commitment, the boldest ideas can be executed.
  • You have to convey your priorities clearly and repeatedly.
  • You can do a lot for the morale of the people around you. This is where we want to be. This is how we're going to get there.
  • It should be about the future, not the past.
  • Treating others with respect.
  • If something doesn't feel right to you, it won't be right for you.
  • As a leader, you are the embodiment of that company. What people think of you is what they'll think of your company.
  • When hiring, try to surround yourself with people who are good in addition to being good at what they do.
  • If you're in the business of making something, be in the business of making something great.
  • You have to approach your work and life with a sense of genuine humility.
  • Hold on to your awareness of yourself, even as the world tells you how important and powerful you are.
