Alumni Networking Breakfast


A WSOM Alumni Networking event featuring a discussion with Dr. Scott Shane on his new book, Born Entrepreneurs, Born Leaders

Although most observers give little attention to how genetics affects your behavior in the work world, your DNA accounts for over one third of the difference between you and your co-workers on many dimensions of your work life, including your work interests, work values, decision making, risk taking, management style, leadership style, creativity, entrepreneur­ship, and work performance, among other aspects of your work life. Born Entrepreneurs, Born Leaders explains how your genes affect your behavior in the workplace. It will help you to understand why you do what you do; how to make the most of what “you’ve got”; how to find the right job fit for your innate preferences; how to act in ways contrary to your “nature;” and how to best influence the behavior of your employees and co-workers.
Scott Shane is the A. Malachi Mixon III Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Case Western Reserve University. He is the author or editor of fourteen books, including the widely acclaimed Illusions of Entrepreneurship, and Fool’s Gold: The Truth Behind Angel Investing in America (OUP, 2008), and was the 2009 winner of the Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research.
Dr. Shane will raffle off two signed copies of his book.
