A really excellent short audio clip from Robert S Kaplan, the Acting President and CEO of Harvard Business School. Gives you in a concise 15minute, lots of excellent MBA style practical advice on reaching your potential e.g. Knowing your weaknesses and not just your strengths; being willing to invest time in people that are willing to bluntly tell you what your weaknesses are; developing character and leadership qualities that will keep you working toward your dream even when setbacks and discouraging situations crop up, which they ultimately will for everyone. And finally having "the courage to periodically assess, make adjustments and pursue a course that reflects who [one] truly [is]."
