A quick rundown of this week's tweets from Elon Musk and what we can learn from them!
Keeping ahead of the exponentially developing AI technology needs more than knowledge, it needs wisdom...
Humility is the greatest trait of any leader. Being able to celebrate those you work with and give them due respect builds the relationships so vital for a successful company.
Last week, Mr Musk asked Mr Neil to tweet him directly if he thought there were any improvements that could be made to the new Tesla Model 3. Respecting and inviting the opinions of other people - especially critics - not only helps you learn where improvements can be made, it also builds trust in the company.
Worth another retweet. Hope Dan Neil returns to Twitter. He left due to relentless attacks from short-sellers, who constantly peddle fear, uncertainty & doubt about Tesla. Dan won the Pulitzer & is considered by many to be the best car critic in the world. https://t.co/txW3DDJpth
