Almost impossible this time but let's stick to 3 key take aways
Saying NO means you will have to be willing to oversee and accept the consequences. Without clarity on the consequences you will not be able to make those choices
Striving for perfection is not part of a growth / learning mindset. If you are not able to accept failures and mistakes you will never be able to learn and it will keep you away from growing. As individuals and as organisations
How having a succesful career is not about having it all planned out, not even about concrete ambitions but about following the hunger to explore new horizon. Where role models will allow you to even consider those horizons.
The book and the leader mentioned by Reshma is Hubert Joly , the Heart of Business.
