Class Overview

Street Smart Leadership

Many excellent books have been written about famous business leaders ranging from Steve Jobs to Jack Welch, but some of the most valuable lessons in leadership are also found in much humbler stories. In this one-hour talk, Joel Calvo uses a combination of personal anecdotes from his 30-year career and lesser-known business tales to elucidate the leadership styles, traits and habits that create long-term success. Lessons learned include why you should never underestimate the value of deep experience, how to hire the right people as well as create invaluable mentoring relationships, and how to develop a vision that leads your people and your business though previously uncharted territory.
