Speaking at the Harvard University in Boston and US Department of Commerce, Washington D.C.
Harvard Business School’s mission to educate leaders who make a difference in the world. Making a difference means people who create real value for society, and who create value before claiming value.
I’ve not found anyone who begrudges a leader for claiming value after creating value. Rather, the recent economic crisis showed us too many examples of leaders who claimed value without creating any. It is worth noting here that there are many ways of making a positive difference: as an investor, as a general manager, as an entrepreneur, as an active citizen of your community.
