5 lessons from the book LinkedIn’s head of recruiting recommends to all new managers

The head of recruiting of LikedIn is no stranger bumpy business and made a book in 2015 called “The obstacle is the way” that gives new mangers a few lessons. He explains in the book that obstacles that occur in business or life is just another way for us to practice and get better. He also tells people to embrace their fate and accept and terrible things that may happen to them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Browne explained that tensions between colleagues in any organization often arise when one hides problems until they can no longer be ignored.
  • He said that he recommends the book with the intention of instilling the idea that difficulties that arise should not be feared or ignored, but immediately embraced.
  • Two thousand years ago, Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius — then the most powerful man on earth — sat down to write himself a note, likely in response to some frustrating people he was dealing with. In that note, he told himself that their frustration was actually an opportunity for him to practice virtue.
