i have only completed this first class. I feel there were a great number of takeaways with forming and developing a company in its infancy. On paper and in theory all the advice sounds great, hopefully i will be able to implement a great deal of it in real life.
The stories are the most effective teaching method to reinforce points he makes. For example, when talking about dealing with crisis he then told the story about his own dealing with the 2008 crisis. I wished more points had accompanying stories.
Key business points - we need more business leaders on MasterClass!!!!!
As a budding CEO it was great to hear insight from a leader that built a company from the ground up. I can move forward knowing that there is no straight line but with the right team and the right leadership approach I will be able to make it through.
