people. manager

A Quote by Larry Brilliant on people manager, leadership, skills, and business

If there's a big problem and you've got the right people with you, usually the answer emerges and you do what's the obvious thing to do. I don't think of myself as some great manager or great leader. I've been very lucky to be in the positions that I've been in. I meet a lot of people and I've grown a lot of companies, and I meet a lot of CEOs at big enterprises. I'm always so surprised at how much they seem to know. It doesn't always seem to be correlated to how well they actually do. My experience is that people who are modest and who appreciate the value and the contributions of others do a lot better than those who are constantly reaffirming what they think are their own skill sets.
