  • Kepler's Books 1010 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA United States (map)

At its core, leadership is a form of service. Employing empathy, collaboration, humility, innovation, and curiosity, great leaders don’t measure success in bottom lines. They measure it by the communities they build and the people they surround themselves with.

Dr. John Hennessy, the tenth President of Stanford University, Chair of the Board of Alphabet and Director of the Knight-Hennessy Scholars Program, reflects on the lessons learned from decades leading – and in so doing, serving -- some of world’s most influential organizations.

Join Dr. Hennessy when he sits down with Alphabet CFO, Ruth Porat – named one of the 25 most powerful women in the world by Forbes Magazine – for an in depth conversation on the power and importance of leadership.
