The IVY Podcast


Nov 4, 2020

We’re honored to invite you to connect and learn with legendary Harvard Business School Professor Frances Frei in a transformative conversation on How We Can All Become Better Leaders By Empowering Others!

Through inspiring stories from ancient Rome to Silicon Valley, we’ll discover the origins of great leadership, showing how the boldest, most effective leaders use a special combination of trust, love, and belonging to create spaces where other people can excel. You’ll leave with practical battle-tested tools—based on their work in companies such as Uber, Riot Games, and others--for unleashing greatness in other people and, ultimately, in yourself.

When leaders seek out advice, they’re often told to fix themselves. In this conversation, we’ll imagine a modern leader who succeeds not by turning inward to address their own strengths and flaws, but with an unrelenting focus on other people’s potential. We’ll dig into the key concepts from Frei's new book Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader’s Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You, in which Frei argues that the most important thing you can do as a leader is build others up. Leadership is about how effective you are at empowering other people—and making sure that this impact endures even in your absence.

Frei is a star professor at Harvard Business School, and recently served as Uber’s first SVP of Leadership and Strategy, helping the company navigate a very public crisis in leadership and culture. Frei is a world-renowned expert that has worked with early-stage tech founders to Fortune 50 executives to public-sector leaders.
