The Relevance of Religion for Leadership, February 13, 2018

video Where do values come from? For many people, religious traditions serve as a foundation for personal values, shaping their decisions and their definition of success. A panel of distinguished leaders from business, politics, and medicine discussed the ways in which religious traditions and identities can shape leadership approaches and ethical decision-making. The collaboration with the Danforth Center on Religion and Politics attracted a diverse audience and generated a lively discussion.

The Value of Values for Founders and Entrepreneurs, September 20, 2017

If values and culture are not clearly articulated and defined from the start, entrepreneurs have little chance of creating ventures that embody their deeply held values. This seminar examined the role of values in entrepreneurship and discussed the chronic challenge of standing firm on values when faced with intense growth pressures. This seminar, presented in collaboration with Entrepreneurs’ Organization, featured local entrepreneurial leaders from organizations like Blueberry Hill, Cotton Babies, Cultivation Capital, and Elasticity.
