The WriteMind Institute Hosts Leading from the Heart

I have been reading a few leadership books lately and this program sounds great.  The WriteMind Institute always pulls together great programs, check it out! 
Leading from the Heart: An evening with Dave Olsen, Senior Vice President, Culture and Leadership Development for STARBUCKS

Time: 7 pm

Location: WriteMind Institute for Corporate Contemplation, 84 North Lexington Avenue

Cost: $15 (FREE to WriteMind Institute members)

Dave Olsen will speak about his experience as well as interact with the audience in a discussion about authentic leadership in large and small organizations.

Dave’s relationship with Starbucks began while he owned and operated one of Seattle’s original coffee bars; he was an important account for Starbucks in the early years. Later, sourcing coffee and developing blends for Starbucks allowed Dave to cultivate relationships with small communities all over the world. In addition to working at Starbucks, Dave has served on multiple non-profit boards with national and international influence. Dave Olsen and Jonathon Flaum, director of WriteMind Institute, have found common ground in discussing the principles of servant leadership as well as the merit of having corporate executives in kayaks.

WriteMind welcomes the community to post questions for Dave Olsen prior to the event on twitter @writemindinst
