Many factors shape the success or failure of a new business, whether a start-up or a new venture inside a larger company. But the most important and least understood factor is the personality of the builder—the founder or leader’s particular combination of beliefs and preferences that drives his or her motivation, decision making, and leadership style.
In their book, Built for Growth, coauthors Chris Kuenne and John Danner decode the interplay between the business builder’s personality and new-business success or failure. Using a patented analytic methodology, Kuenne and Danner discovered four distinct types of highly successful “business builder” personalities—the Driver, the Explorer, the Crusader, and the Captain—each displaying special gifts and predictable gaps or shortcomings in growing their companies or new ventures.
On March 6, 2017, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Kuenne and Danner will share research findings from Built for Growth, as well as insights and personal experiences on how each personality type can successfully manage the challenges of building businesses of lasting value.
With vivid stories and practical tools, the authors of Built for Growth will provide unprecedented insight into the personalities of each builder type and how you can use that insight to assess yourself and others to improve your odds of success.
Discover how to more effectively play to your strengths, complement and compensate for your gaps, and build successful businesses—from start-up to scale-up. Join HBR and Built for Growth’s coauthors on March 6.
