The accompanying text below the video include these helpful comments:

“A great secret of leadership and of being a great boss,” Drosos adds, “is to see things from other people’s perspective. Nobody tells you more than teenagers, who really want you to see it from their perspective.  It’s what helps you be a great parent as well.”

The article continues, “Indeed, at a certain point, the kid becomes the coach. And the parent learns a big lesson of business and of life: Real power comes from giving it away.”
