My 4 Days at Harvard

I was lucky enough recently to spend a few days at Harvard Business School taking one of their Executive Education Courses entitled Achieving Breakthrough Service. I will say it was by far one of the most awesome experiences I’ve been a part of.

Prior to going for this course, I had been to Boston once before, and walked through the Harvard campus. It was a gorgeous campus with lots of historic buildings in a energy filled college town.

Arriving to Harvard this time was different, being on the Business School campus, I could tell I was in for one of the most unique learning experiences. And I was right, the experience was unlike any other learning environment I had been part of before.

Here are a few things I learned while there:

From the course itself:

  1. Create clarity — create clarity in all things that you do. If you aren’t clear in your business, both your customers and employees suffer, as this allows room for ambiguity on all levels. Don’t underestimate the importance of this or the impact it can have.

From this experience:

  1. The diversity of background and culture and caliber of leaders that attended this course was incredible — Being around all of these successful, and open-minded people pushes you to think differently, be better, to want to continue to grow and learn and push yourself to succeed.
