Culture is how a company makes decisions. If culture is not purposeful, it could result in accidents or mistakes. As a leader, how do you create and sustain the culture you want? It’s a question crucial to every organization and Ben Horowitz, veteran entrepreneur and cofounder of the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, is addressing it in his latest book, What You Do Is Who You Are: How to Create Your Business Culture.
Horowitz couples his role as an entrepreneur with a deep love for history to spotlight four historical leadership and culture-building models: Haiti’s Toussaint Louverture, who was the leader of the only successful slave revolt in history; the Samurai, who ruled Japan for seven hundred years and shaped modern Japanese culture; Genghis Khan, who built the world’s largest empire; and Shaka Senghor, an American ex-con who created the most formidable prison gang in the yard and ultimately transformed prison culture. Horowitz goes on to connect these lessons to modern case studies on organizational culture, including Reed Hastings at Netflix, Travis Kalanick at Uber, Hilary Clinton, and more, to help readers become the kind of leader they want to be - and others want to follow.
Join New York Times bestselling author Ben Horowitz for a compelling conversation about creating a successful culture and hear the sometimes unexpected advice to current and future leaders that can weather both good and bad times.
