Lessons Learned the Hard Way

In this lecture, Joel Peterson, Lecturer in Business, GSB, imparts his wisdom on happiness, leadership and self-development. Building on Friedrich Buechner’s imperative to find “a person to be, someone to love, and work to do,” Peterson gives succinct but powerful advice on a range of topics that is breath-taking in breadth, and inspiring in depth. Speaking from personal experience, his advice ranges from writing your own mission statement, making personal sacrifices, developing the leadership attitude, building trust, to making sure “the beef is there.” The lecture includes colorful quotes from Twain, Goethe and Churchill, and a healthy, emboldening chunk of Peterson’s infectious optimism on life.Recorded: April 18, 2002.
