6.2 Learning From Great Leaders

Course Overview

In this course, we will take a look at the success stories of some of the great business leaders of our time to see what we can learn. There is a very old saying, attributed to Isaac Newton which says “If I have seen further, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.”

It is both a privilege and a necessity for us to learn from the successes (and the failures) of those who have gone before us. There are many great leaders to choose from, but this course focuses on a select six:

    • Warren Buffett
    • Steve Jobs
    • Oprah Winfrey
    • Elon Musk
    • Mary Barra
    • Indra Nooyi
