World-class business coaching

The Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman podcasts expose you to top leaders in business and culture who share their most important insights distilled from years spent building great (mostly tech) companies and charities. As the host, Reid Hoffman draws out the background and importance of the guests’ insights though thoughtful questions derived from his personal curiosity and success in business building and investing. The result is actionable knowledge that has helped me to overcome blindspots that evolved through conventional wisdom or inattention. One of my favorite insights is Mark Zuckerberg’s advice to "only hire people you would work for” (Episode 4). Another was Arianna Huffington’s realization that “the rules by which she navigated life were all wrong” (Episode 28).

There are no hard questions, there are hard beliefs

I actually disagree with the below review, and find that Reid often disagrees with his friends. He does not berate them or tell them they are wrong...instead he gets to the logic behind the mindset and how a variety of different people all take action due to the same underlying perspective. This is one of my all time favorite podcasts, and I never fail to be interested and broaden my thinking during an episode. Lee them coming!

Waste of time.

Don’t waste your time on this. He interviews his friends and basically gives them a pass on everything. No hard questions.
