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.
Mr Shultz is wonderfully and surpassingly a totally genuine person. I say surprised because with a many successes as that man had endorsed, it hasn't gotten to his head.
It has helped me view businesses from a different standpoint, the human, the financial, the entrepreneurial. Thanks,
I loved the class and it felt like Howard Schultz was talking to me directly. I just wish there was more detail and depth
i have only completed this first class. I feel there were a great number of takeaways with forming and developing a company in its infancy. On paper and in theory all the advice sounds great, hopefully i will be able to implement a great deal of it in real life.
