Leadership lessons from Brian Chesky

July 17, 2015 Leave a comment

I typically do not read much about the CEOs of tech startups. A big reason is that I live in the Silicon Valley and most CEOs are building the company with an exit strategy. So there isn’t much to learn from them.

Although this piece on Brian Chesky and how he has learned to run AirBNB is a superb read. It is full of leadership lessons that will take years to get, if you are lucky to have a chance to experience it. As Munger says the best way to learn is to learn from other’s mistakes. This article will give you key leadership approaches that even a MBA program won’t be able to teach. A great read for anyone that is in leadership positions or interested in it.
