HOW: Why HOW We Do Anything Means Everything

#sxsw #HowWeDo

In today's interconnected and even morally interdependent world, we rise and fall together. The way to forge a better, more sustainable path of growth and progress lies in the realm of human behavior- HOW we do what we do. Leaders have become successful at measuring how much by out-selling and out-spending. But instead of asking how much, we should be examining HOW. How we behave, lead, consume, build trust in our relationships, and relate to others has always mattered but in an age when everything can be tweeted and blogged about and where there is no such thing as private behavior, HOW matters more than ever and in ways it never has before. Through entertaining anecdotes and illuminating examples, Dov Seidman will discuss why, in light of the recent financial and environmental crises of epic proportions, how is no longer just a question: HOW is the answer.
