Date and Location

October 19, 2020
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
L-145 John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum



No two leaders are the same. But through conversation with some of the world’s greatest CEOs and game changers, David M. Rubenstein has
found commonalities among the motivations and challenges that shape the
careers of leaders who thrive—how do they handle decision-making, risk,
innovation, and crisis? Harvard President Lawrence S. Bacow has
helmed institutions of higher learning for almost two decades. Drawing
on principles and stories from Rubenstein’s new book, How to Lead: Wisdom from the World’s Greatest CEOs, Founders, and Game Changers, the two will share stories of leaders they have admired throughout the courses of their own careers, and why.

Moderated by Amb. Wendy R. Sherman, the conversation
will also look at leadership across the fields of business, education,
and government. What are metrics for success? Do different sectors
demand different skills? With decades of experience leading
organizations and managing change, the group will share personal
successes, failures, and leadership observations from the field.
