  1. My favorite takeaway from the interview was when Reid talked about how Linkedin Pivoted to reach its strategic goal of having millions of people join the social network.

  2. Many of the highlights of this webcast map well to Keith’s teachings such as the concept of ‘leading with generosity’ or the importance of prioritizing subjects through a network of trusted friends.

    This webinar is packed with actionable insights. Keith and Reid have a natural connection here. Both are admirable leaders who spend their time giving back to the community in very generous ways.

    Well done guys! Keep up the good work!

  3. One of the many things in the conversation that I enjoyed was how Reid mentioned a tactic when you first meet someone that you may need help from is how you “don’t start with an ask” and its really not about what can the person do for me instead its how we can ally and work together. As a college student, too many times have I met established alumni and executives and think to myself, “what do I possibly have to offer in this relationship,” but Reid’s encouragement about how my opinion and my point of view matters too. I need to be adding value to the relationship as well. The questions “How can I help you?” is such a powerful tool in meeting new people.

    I absolutely love the concept that “we are our own CEO, we are in the business of ourselves” and how we are really responsible for our own success and if we want to move forward and progress in our life is to invest in my relationships around me. Every connection I make today would definitely would ultimately bring me closer to my dream.
