From Challenging Conventional Wisdom to Self Discovery Through Play

 - Oct 29, 2013
These lectures on wisdom discuss what is means to be wise and offer a large variety of life lessons. These pieces of wisdom are beneficial across a set of industries, whether it is media or social good or real estate. The advice offered can be applied generally to one's life outside of work as well.

For Oprah Winfrey, wisdom is about seeking out learning opportunities in every situation and treating life as a classroom. She also advocates being self-aware, helping others and doing the right thing in another insightful speech. Simon Cohen challenges traditional views of what it means to be wise, saying wise people are not afraid to be vulnerable or admit when they do not know something. Margaret Heffernan's commencement address embraces conflict and encourages people to work alongside with people unlike them.

Especially in today's digital world, it is important to realize there is still much to learn. A good leader does not need to know everything, but must continuously seek out new knowledge and listen to others.
