Before finding this article, I had no idea who Bill Kling is or what he does for a living, who he represents. But I wish I could have taken a class from him during my 10-year escapade in college and post-graduate school. I found myself nodding along with his answers to the interviewers questions as if, “Yes, this is exactly what I needed to hear.” Definitely bookmarking this one.
My favorite bit: “A mentor of mine taught me that every perspective is additive, because every person sitting in a room is looking at things differently. Each of them has a different perspective. They come from a different way of thinking and different experiences. And their collective perspective gives you a better outcome. So you have to value the perspectives and try to organize those perspectives in some useful way that lets you go forward.”
