Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz rose from a childhood in public housing to leading a company that revolutionized the way the world drinks coffee. With no formal business education, he relied on his values while growing a 13-store chain into a global brand with more than 250,000 employees. In his 90-minute video series, Howard shares what he’s learned about business leadership and being an entrepreneur.
I am beginning my MBA. I loved the piece about being honest with each other, and trusting that your people can handle the truth, no matter how painful.
Thinking of perfect recommendations, and at the end there is everything between the lines. Having a look at the sublines which lead you to sucess! Really enjoyed the lesseon, a little bit short to others, but quality input!
I understand now that to succeed as a leader it involves empathy, teamwork, and tough decisions.
This is a very interesting and insightful class. Howard is an empathic and honest leader, and his life experiences are very useful!
