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 work for a small company and the owner micromanages. Through this I discovered how I could approach talking to him about it.
Amazing to hear principles that I often hear or read in theory having been implemented in a company like Starbucks and the success from it. Brilliant.
Howard Schultz definitely uses a lot of Starbucks experience and history to tell his tale and advising of new entrepreneurs. One takeaway is the using the HR person to develop career roadmap and seek mentorship. Leverage existing resources to grow and ask questions and gain insights. Thanks for the masterclass.
That honesty and staying true to your values creates better leaders and a stronger business.
