Description

Howard Behar is one of three top executives who have helped shape one of the most recognized companies in the world: Starbucks. A widely acclaimed leader, Behar, with his signature energy, smarts, high expectations, and belief in people, has become a symbol of the soul and candor of the Starbucks culture.

In It's Not about the Coffee, Behar outlines his simple yet effective approach to success: focus on people over profits. He offers ten fundamental leadership lessons we all need to practice as well as preach every day, including clarity of purpose, listening, truth telling, accountability, and persistence. Each chapter explores one of these principles, incorporating inside stories of turning points in the development of Starbucks' culture and business and offering inspiring advice.
