"There’s a lot of advice that I’m actually going to take into my day-to-day from … as a manager at a startup we constantly talk about our wins and losses, but we never really talk about the bad decisions within the wins, and I think that’s really important."
"We should be thinking a lot more about decision making and the feedback loop. Especially in my industry, I’m in real estate so I have very long feedback loops, so never really sat down to think about how are the decisions I’m making going to yield what feedback and she really gets you to think about that."
