More about the Speaker
Derek Lidow - CEO, Entrepreneur, Princeton Professor, Start-up Coach has spent a career testing what it takes for a company to succeed. His contributions have improved companies as diverse as Sony, Samsung, Philips, Goldman Sachs and IBM. Today, he is on a mission to empower people with the confidence and skills to build better businesses. Audiences can look forward to Derek’s hands-on, how-to advice.
Derek Lidow is a successful entrepreneur, who built the information company, iSuppli and then sold it for $100 million. Throughout his long career—as CEO, innovator and entrepreneur— he has tested virtually every aspect of launching a business. Lidow now argues that success is far less dependent upon a firm’s idea, or any grand strategy than it is upon something more personal--leadership. Emerging companies have specific leadership requirements, stage by fast-moving stage. Few founders have been able to leverage the tremendous power of this under-recognized reality–until now. Startup Leadership demonstrates how founders can adopt the skills that are required at each stage of their journey. Whether you are at the idea stage or managing a more mature enterprise, you can start to recognize the fundamental conflict—how to balance your “selfish” drives with the more “self-less” leadership required by the organization at any given time. The book illustrates how to become the “startup leader” each business needs – and how to move a plan forward with greater confidence and success.
