The daily work of leading
posted on Jun 9 2020

Just started Frances Frei and Anne Morriss’s new book Unleashed and it’s off to a great start.

…we discovered that the daily work of leading is much quieter and less dramatic than the leadership stories that had captivated us as children.


The practice of leadership almost always asks you to risk something, but it only sometimes requires a midnight ride or a clutch, buzzer-beating jump shot. And there’s rarely a crowd that goes wild when you get it right.

Frances lead the culture turnaround at Uber in 2017 and she’s a professor at Harvard Business School. I highly recommend listening to this 2017 interview and this June 2020 interview with Kara Swisher.
