The Golden Rules
Experimenting is the key to innovation
When you are actively listening, it's really hard to f*ck up
I'm never lost, I simply find new places
Culture is not just having the core values of your company painted on the wall
In hiring, there is no room for unrequited love
Before you look outside for talent, look inside for the fire.
There might be no "I" in "team," but there is a "me."
Don't discuss the size of the ring until you fall in love
Hiring should start with your leaders
No one is perfect, we are all subject to failure
Hire for change
Talk the same language
Listen to the new generation, there is wisdom to be found
