Special Guest Dean Lyons BS ‘82 joins my cohosts Julia Nechaieva FTMBA ’18, Steve Lee EWMBA ’20, and I on the Haas podcast to discuss leadership, intentionality, and culture amongst many things. We discuss why recruiters hire Haas students, how the latent Berkeley Haas Defining Leadership Principles were codified and how they are used to guide the initiatives at Haas.
We continue to discuss the macro-implications of codifying culture and the chemistry it creates within an ecosystem, leading to students being invested in one another’s success. We also discuss the challenges inherent in the interpretation of the defining leadership principles amongst the student body. Julia continues on to ask Dean Lyons for advice for graduating Haasies, and Steve explores where Dean Lyons foresees Haas in the next five years.
