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 have learnt the power of pouring your heart to the company, courage to make hard decisions and the humane nature of treating employees
Though I have studied this class, I have done so as a person who runs their life as a business rather than an entrepreneur. I've learned how to determine my purpose, my core values, running my daily life and work with integrity towards these values and the importance of work - life balance (to name but a few things I've taken from this class). Thank you for the opportunity to learn and grow.
Lots of great information and thought-provoking challenges that will positively impact my business.
The stories are the most effective teaching method to reinforce points he makes. For example, when talking about dealing with crisis he then told the story about his own dealing with the 2008 crisis. I wished more points had accompanying stories.
