Business Lead - Chief of Staff to the head of the Facebook App at Facebook
Actively build your team or your tribe. This job can sometimes feel lonely and isolating (and i'm sure many of the leaders we support feel the same). Find people within your organization and especially within your leader's inner circle who you can trust and collaborate with.
Chief of Staff, Vice President at Insight Partners
For team/company/partner initiatives: impossible to get anything done successfully if people don't feel they've been heard throughout the process - even if you'll eventually make a decision or implement a process they don't like. For principals: no matter how closely you work together/how informal your relationship, important to maintain deference re: ultimate authority.
