Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn and General Partner at Greylock, recently released The Start-Up of You.
Last week, he participated in the DFJ Entrepreneurial Thought Leader Series at Stanford.
The talk covers his career, highlights of the book, and his reflections on risk, career management, and the future of work.
I truly enjoyed listening to the podcast. His views on the need to take risk to both create opportunity and competitive advantage truly resonates. He cautions his listeners to realize that workplace dynamics have completely changed - no lifetime employment, no long-term career paths with a single organization, and a need for all of us to view ourselves as a startup, where risk taking, networking, and goal planning is key to modern day success.
