Leadership Lessons: Quotes

So your first management role was as CEO.  Any early speed bumps in leading people?

One classic mistake I made was that I assumed everyone was as driven as I was and had the same standards.  I made a lot of hiring mistakes, because at the beginning you assume so much about about someone and you tend to assume that they’re just like you.

What’s your favorite part about being a CEO [or insert your leadership role here]?

You’re constantly learning about yourself and learning about people and learning about life, really.  Every single day, you’re put to the test.

Lisa Falzone, CEO of Revel Systems

From Corner Office column, Adam Bryant in The New York Times
