"I’ve had several instances where I’ve started a business, sold it, made a lot of money, and then basically lost everything I made, whether it was $50 million or $5 million or whatever. I always have a tendency to lose everything I made."
Staying focused on the right things can make all the difference.

Robots will mimic your gestures and expressions, work alongside you, take your job, but don't sweat it.
Robot staff may already outnumber humans at some companies, but increased automation doesn't mean everyone will be out of work.

Why you can't be analytical and empathetic at the same time.
People are often promoted for their analytic ability, but they may lack the people skills needed to be a good manager.

"...there was no preconceived notion back then that what someone who works in privacy is going to look like. There was no role model who was a male leader in that area."
The privacy industry has managed to close the gender wage gap. How did they do it and what can we learn from it?

"And if you get that wrong, you squander their potential and they never get that back..."
It's not about choosing the trendiest flat organization to adopt. It's about finding the one that works best for your company.

Business leaders share what happens when right and wrong isn't so clear.
Should you tell a client you messed up? Take back an employee who lied? Leaders share how they made the toughest decisions of their careers.
