Should we be honest?


Today I'm releasing a bonus episode ...

In my masterminds for school leaders we read an excellent leadership book each month and it bothers me that listeners miss the valuable insights from the books because I have limited availability in the masterminds.

So I decided to experiment ... in this show I share a few ideas around some impactful ideas from the book we read this July: Creativity, Inc.

Show highlights:

  • honesty vs candor
  • how Pixar delivers feedback through the Braintrust
  • what "good notes" are
  • how Pixar's feedback system is different than yours
  • Braintrusts and Masterminds

Thanks for listening!

Books mentioned in the episode:
