MM BOOK CLUB

DARE TO LEAD, BY BRENE BROWN: SECTION 2

This week we continued reading section 2 "Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind." in our book and shared our thoughts on Instagram, and loved the comments from our MM community. This quarter's theme is “Lead with Integrity”, and our key takeaways from the second section of the book are the following:

1. Unreasonable timelines are seldom driven by excitement or ambition, but rather due to fears of not doing enough and fear of others thinking you are not good at your job. When we live in fear, rather than being courageous, there is a fairly predictable armor we put on.

2. The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.

3. Daring leadership is ultimately about serving other people, not ourselves. That's why we must choose courage.

Make sure to join us on social media next Thursday, 1 NOV to cover section 3.



LEADERSHIP

HOW TO MANAGE EXPERIENCED EXECUTIVES AS A MILLENNIAL CEO

In the era of technology, young CEOs are more common than they've been in previous generations. And while this is exciting, it also introduces new dynamics to the workplace. New company founders may find themselves hiring and managing older executives who have a lot of experience and sometimes different ways of doing things. It brings about the question of how to manage people that are older than you and balance their advice with the direction you want for the company.


IMPACT INVESTING

CHANGING THE STATUS QUO: HOW WOMEN ARE LEADING THE CHARGE ON IMPACT INVESTING

Although impact investing is still widely considered “niche” within the investing world, it’s definitely on the rise. Recent stats show that $250B in global capital is going into impact investing, and that number is growing year over year.
