To the guys asking questions about diamonds: Bigger does not always equate to better. I have a petite diamond, but it's high in quality and clarity. It's symbolic and a lot of thought was put into it.

Pro tip: get your ring custom from a local jewler. Not as expensive as name brand, and you can craft your engagement or wedding rings yourself- I made the engagement ring and we both made our own wedding rings. Makes it far more special, and can be a lot cheaper (but high quality)

^this. People that buy at Tiffany and the like are paying twice as much for the same product. Ask the more senior guys for a recommendation on a guy.

I bought a Tiffany diamond because the box is blue and arguing about cut and color on diamonds is pointless anyways. They are expensive shiny overinflated rocks hyped and marketed by a criminal cartel family (De Beers). But since bishes love marketing and I love my fiancée then whatever; buy it and write off as cost of doing biz. Next question.

Tiffany has really high quality diamonds. You pay that much not just because of the brand but because you only get diamonds of color quality I or above, and excellent clarity / cut

Tiffany diamonds can be great but they aren't necessarily. Harry Winston, Graff are better quality. That said, all of mine (engagement, wedding band, push present) we got made bespoke by a non-brand master jeweller... you pay an unnecessary premium for a brand in my view (as in, multiple of 2-3x plus); for the brand but also their absurd rents and marketing spend.

Every once in a while the word "empathy" comes back in the conversation, it's kinda jaded and overused but that's the exact reason WHY we talk about it so much. Because it's essential. Acknowledge your team is frustrated, lost, or demotivated is one of the most essential leadership skills to have, and most importantly, what do you do when you see that happening. Practice awareness. Be mindful of your words and asks. Lead by example.

This is what determines who has what it takes to be a leader.
