Book Review: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership

9 Nov

Sir Richard Branson is one of the top entrepreneurs I respect and admire.

One of the wisdom I learn from this book, if you don’t like it, don’t do it. Having a strong passion for the thing you’re going to do only will bring you great joys and experience.

Here are the top 5 things I learn from this book:
– Keep business as simple can it can be: Don’t over complicate the business make it simple and stupid (KISS)
– Be willing to take risks and think different: If you’re going to be same as others, why would a customer choose you over others? Take some risk and be different
– Listen more than you talk: This is one the skills that served Branson really well over the decades, listen to your customers, to the people around you before you start talking.
– Start a note-taking habit: Another great skill that Branson has, you can’t remember everything, write them down on your notes.
– Collaboration is Key: Learn to collaborate and work with others, you don’t have to do everything on your own. Share success with others.
