Quote on Leadership

“I have a real problem with meanness. … We need people [leaders] that are inspiring, people that are aspirational. We need people who have a kindness in their personalities. … I have human frailty. I have weakness. I’ve made my share of mistakes. You guys wouldn’t even have enough time to list all my mistakes, but I’m also recognizing that you may have some frailty too. You guys have made some mistakes in your life. Maybe you haven’t, but I think it’s going to be hard to go your entire life without making them, and I think we should give ourselves a bit of a chance.” – Anthony Scaramucci speaking at Cambridge Union (Apr 2022)
