Agenda

The Fierce Urgency of HOW
LRN and the HOW philosophy have helped some of the world's most respected companies build "do it right," winning cultures and inspire principled performance throughout their organizations. This philosophy is detailed in the best-selling book, HOW: Why HOW We Do Anything Means Everything by LRN's CEO Dov Seidman. HOW describes why how we behave, lead, govern, operate, consume, engender trust in our relationships, and relate to others matters more than ever and in ways it never has before. David will explain the forces that have fundamentally reshaped our world, provide frameworks to help you understand the implications of this reshaped world for you and your companies, and give you insight on how to lead and behave in ways that will foster greater success and significance.
