Modern Managers learn by doing. And sometimes that means we get burned. I sat down with Mo to hear about a time he got burned, what he learned and how he avoids making the same mistake again. 

How Mo Learned from the Burn 🔥

Tell me about a time you were burned in the past. Obviously, working in the high-stress media space, I let my ego get the better of me. I used to be a freelance consultant for ad agencies. I would come in in times of crisis and help solve pressing problems. I’ve helped let go of under performing teams and replaced entire departments with new one to service clients better. In that world I didn’t care if I was burning bridges as long as I was delivering. Naturally, that always came to bite me back.

What did you learn?“Business is personal!”

How did this experience shape the way you handle situations like this as a manager? I’ve named my company Empathy Inc. to remind myself to always be empathetic to the people who work with and for me.

Harness the power of employee ideas.
