What Good is Wisdom if it Isn’t Shared?

Susan Drumm asks “What do you wish someone would have told you about leadership
and how to lead a team?”


If only I knew then what I know now!

How many times have you experienced that “hindsight is 20-20” feeling? The hard-knocks school of entrepreneurship has plenty of lessons to learn along the way. And my guess is that we’ve all probably made the same . . .or at least very similar mistakes.

How about we start leveraging these mistakes and treat them as “intellectual capital” — learning from each other so we DON’T collectively keep making the same mis-steps?

I, for one, am ready to tap into the wisdom of other entrepreneurs and learn from their journeys. How ‘bout you? Let’s skip the regrets and put these hard-won lessons to use.

Read insights from Be Leaderly’s Jo Miller and two rockstar entrepreneurs at Susan Drumm’s blog.
