Quotes from This Episode

  • "I think it's really important for students to be immersed in actual managerial problems."
  • "I'm very curious. It's interesting to watch how some organizations have really thrived during this pandemic. Some of it seems to me about how organizations mobilized and were led."
  • "Yes, there is disagreement, and you have to work through it. That's the whole point. We want people to speak candidly, respectfully, but candidly...and so the more practice we get, the better. And the beauty of a simulation is, there's nothing actually at stake, right?"
  • "I study failures. I've never gone away from that. And I don't know what it is, call me strange. I do get obsessed with the stories of failures. I just think there's so much to learn that I didn't know."
