Value-Based Thought Leadership | Harry Kraemer

Value-Based Thought Leadership| Harry Kraemer

Using thought leadership to lead a value-based life.

An interview with Harry Kraemer about how the academic and business communities need each other and how leading value-based life can change the way you lead others.

Today’s guest is Harry Kraemer, a professor of management and strategy at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, where he teaches in the MBA and the Executive MBA programs. Previously, he was CEO of Baxter Healthcare. These two careers have given him a unique perspective on how academia and business work hand in hand.

Harry shares his journey from being a student at Northwestern to CEO, and back to Northwestern as a professor. In addition, we explore the somewhat strange origin of his first book Becoming the Best and how a student was the forcing mechanism that brought it to life.

Moreover, we discuss the trilogy of books (Becoming the Best, From Values to Action and Your 168) that Harry has written over the last ten years. He explains how the themes all tie together to help you become a value-based leader. Then, he gives advice about running a value-based organization while living a value-based life!

All of the profit from the sales of Harry’s books go to One Acre Fund, we highly encourage you to learn more about this incredible initiative.

Three Key Takeaways from the Interview:

  • A thought leader can gain a lot from listening to the academic and business communities. Start by developing a perspective that understands both.
  • Thought leaders need to know their values and their purpose if they want to understand how they affect the way you act and interact with people.
  • Thought leaders must live their values even in the face of distraction and difficulty.
