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 will watch this again as there were many good points that I need to go back and listen to again. I would share this with any person in a leadership position.
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.
That kind of class that you watch with a coffee in your hands.
