What secrets do history’s luminaries share? Esteemed author Walter Isaacson—who was given exclusive and unprecedented access to the subject of his most recent book, Steve Jobs, is widely considered to be one of today’s most insightful biographers.

I have my own theory about why decline happens at companies like IBM or Microsoft. The company does a great job, innovates and becomes a monopoly or close to it in some field, and then the quality of the product becomes less important. The company starts valuing the great salesmen, because they’re the ones who can move the needle on revenues, not the product engineers and designers. So the salespeople end up running the company.” — Walter Isaacson

Join us September 18 as we welcome Walter Isaacson for an exclusive 90-minute presentation, at 11:00 AM EST, on Timeless Leadership: Leadership Lessons from Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.
