Join our conversation with Larry Ward about using values-based leadership to influence business, education, and society.
What is the role of values in long-term value creation? How can entrepreneurial leaders drive change in their organization and society?Join our conversation about Values in Action with entrepreneurial leader, Dr. Lawrence (Larry) P. Ward.Larry is vice president for learner success and dean of campus life at Babson College. He achieves organizational goals using critical and creative thought, common sense, open communication, humor, and a personal commitment to excellence. He leads by example and inspires the Babson community to do the same. As he recently said:"'One Babson' does not mean that we must think the same way or share the same political beliefs or opinion. But it does mean that when we disagree, we still value the notion of community and the importance of integrity, civility, and respect in words and actions, whether in person or online. The free exchange of ideas is part of how we learn and grow.... I want you to speak up, speak out, and stand up for your beliefs. But please do so thoughtfully, responsibly, and with a strong sense of dignity."Higher education is on the frontlines of disruption. How one leads through a pandemic or crisis is crucial because it reveals personal and organizational character. Larry will share what it takes to lead when every day, maybe every hour, is uncertain.Join the conversation on ZoomMeeting details will be provided in the registration confirmation email.About Values in ActionAs Arthur Blank asks himself in his book, Good Company, "Are we as a company, worthy of our peoples lives?
