Brad Feld – Profile of a Leader: November 2004
1/21/11 - Everything is changing. All the rules are changing…or are they? SOFTBANK Venture Capital became Mobius Venture Capital. Brad Feld cut his hair (unlike Samson, he did not lost his strength). Are these changes symbolic, superficial or just a sign of our changing times? Leadership in changing times has been elusive to so many organizations… great leadership that is. Some say leaders have learned from their experience. We’ve heard people proudly point out they have 18 years experience… In truth, have they merely had one experience 18 times? Yes, leaders do learn from experience, but it’s the distillation of all the good and challenging events that makes the difference. Brad’s mother and father had a great impact on him…personally and professionally. Along the way in the business world (starting at age 15 in Brad’s case) there were others that also influenced his beliefs and values. He learned from some tough lessons as well as from his successes. Brad shares some of his "learning experiences" in this provocative interview. Brad also offers some advice to entrepreneurs. We should all listen to this guy. He shares some golden nuggets, his career turning point, and much, much more. This could be the next step in your career, maybe a turning point. Listen now, as Larry & Pat Nelson of w3w3 Talk Radio unveil some pages in Brad Feld’s life.
