Authentic Leadership with Harvard’s Bill George

Last month at the 2017 PTV Investors Meeting we were honored to welcome Harvard Business School Professor and former Medtronic CEO Bill George to deliver a keynote address on authentic leadership. We are pleased to have the opportunity to share Mr. George’s talk with you. Please enjoy in either video or podcast format below and feel free to share with your colleagues, partners, and networks.

In his hour-long talk before a room of investors and portfolio company executives as well as Austin entrepreneurs and students, Mr. George shared his own journey to discover his true north and develop a servant leadership mentality based in authenticity and integrity.

“I think today it’s not about having followers,” said George. “I think it’s about empowering other people to be really great leaders of other people. Everyone who works for you should be a leader.”

“Bill has been a tremendous thought leader in our space and has mentored hundreds of CEOs in the industry,” said PTV Managing Director Rick Anderson.  “He’s always accessible and gracious with his time, and there’s nobody better to talk about the importance of values and authentic leadership.”

Thank you Mr. George for an excellent and engaging event!
