  • Leaders who sustain excellence:
    • Demonstrate excellence in what they do. “People want to follow people who are excellent at their job.”
    • They hold people accountable
    • “Excellent leaders are generally kind to others and establish goodwill with many people.”
  • “Your job is to find something you’re good at, and after ten thousand hours of practice, get great at it. The emotional and economic rewards that accompany being great at something will make you passionate about whatever “it” is.”
  • “I tell my students that nothing wonderful, I’m talking really fantastic, will happen without taking a risk and subjecting yourself to rejection. Serendipity is a function of courage.”
  • “If you don’t get criticism it means you aren’t saying anything.”
  • What does it mean to be a man? “Being a responsible head of household that provides for your family and is a real partner with someone and raising kids and checking that instinctive box — being a good father, being a good husband … raising responsible, civic-minded kids. It’s also realizing that if your partner is better at being the head of household and being the provider you get out of the way and support them to do it.”
    • “The most dangerous person in the world is a broke and alone male, and we are producing too many of them.”
  • Greatness is in the agency of others… When I asked Scott about how he’s built his career, his first thought was about the others who he’s surrounded himself with. Greatness is in the agency of others. Your ability to attract and retain talented people will be the difference between a good career and a great one…
  • We should spread kindness. Have security in yourself and give people compliments they deserve.
  • “The most interesting 5 minutes I’ve had in a long time” – Anderson Cooper describing Scott Galloway
  • “This guy is a walking applause break” – Bill Maher describing Scott Galloway
  • Scott has sat on the boards of Gateway Computer, Urban Outfitters, Eddie Bauer, The New York Times Company, University of California Berkeley, Panera Bread, and Ledger, a crypto wallet. He hosted the CNN+ host of a business and technology show, No Mercy No Malice.
