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 always believed in the Starbucks way to success and the human resource mentality of Howard Schultz. It was an honor to listen to him up close and be reminded of those principles.
This's the best master class I've learnt so far! Thank you for creating chance for us to sit with people like Howard to listen to his iconic story
Great perspective on entrepreneurship and management, especially managing people and organisational culture.
Dear Howard Schultz - Please run for President. I liked how you matched business to your values...you always made sure the business was profitable but then committed it to a giving culture as much as was reasonable. - A Blue Dog Democrat who laments the widening gap between left and right in America
