Kristen Hadeed: Permission to Screw Up
Kristen Hadeed is the founder and CEO of Student Maid, a successful cleaning company that hires college students. She is the author of the book Permission To Screw Up*, in which she tells the stories of her biggest mistakes in leadership.
- The best thing you can do when you screw up is to admit it—and then people will start trusting you.
- Failure is the best way to learn.
- If you never admit to your failures, people start to think you’re hiding something and begin to lose trust.
- By admitting your mistakes, you give everyone else the permission to admit theirs.
