    Kristen Hadeed: Permission to Screw Up
    Kristen Hadeed is the founder and CEO of Student Maid, a successful cleaning company that hires college students. She is the author of the book Permission To Screw Up*, in which she tells the stories of her biggest mistakes in leadership.
    Key Points

    The best thing you can do when you screw up is to admit it—and then people will start trusting you.
    Failure is the best way to learn.
    If you never admit to your failures, people start to think you’re hiding something and begin to lose trust.
    By admitting your mistakes, you give everyone else the permission to admit theirs.
