[FLR] “12 Hot Business Lessons From Starbucks CEO” | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

 

Last year while on vacation in Dublin, we were looking for WiFi access, as my family didn’t have that set up at home. Our go-to place? A coffee shop.
 
You guessed it – Starbucks. Funny how things have changed in the world, when what you really need even more than caffeine is access to WiFi. Starbucks has built a global brand on providing more.
 
More seats, more meeting space, more community. By providing more, this leads to we, the consumer, getting more value & giving more value to this brand. Leadership as all about providing more.

Grow with discipline. Balance intuition with rigor. Innovate around the core. Don’t embrace the status quo. Find new ways to see. Never expect a silver bullet. Get your hands dirty. Listen with empathy and overcommunicate with transparency. Tell your story, refusing to let others define you.

– Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks

 
Leading, along the road with you!
