The Leadership Lessons & Takeaways From This Interview
Entrepreneurs drive the business world forward, not always perfectly, however, without entrepreneurs we would stagnate and have a lot less disruption
As a business leader, you will have several itches, especially if you already have a business or operating in one, often another itch is bigger (and better) and going to be the bigger business you will end up working on and making positive changes with - Caleb see’s opportunity and runs full pace at it when the time is aligning
When it comes to LLM and AI - ‘missions’ are going to be more important. Missions are going to be incredibly powerful as a driver and it’s critical for people to connect to a (company or personal) mission to get their best work
What works for some does not work for others and that is ok but as leaders, you have to embrace differences and enable people to thrive - whether that’s in an office environment, working hybrid or becoming more flexible within business operations
The world of work has to change, especially around the future of the office - it has to be more flexible and environments people want to work in and collaborate in not just be in to work in
The business world will change in the future and there may not be 100-year companies anymore, there could be more disposable companies set up for specific tasks and then change or fold once their tasks or job is done and that’s going to be empowering and offer futures for many professionals.
