Sam Zell: It’s the people, stupid

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Real estate titan Sam Zell has no patience for how business schools teach leadership. He’s candid about how they’re always “canonizing” empirical tools but drop the ball on people skills.

“I don’t think enough effort in graduate schools is devoted to the real world,” Zell told students at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business recently. “The real world is a meritocracy. Leaders have to lead by example and by interfacing with people.”
