Thomas J. DeLong is a Baker Foundation Professor of Management Practice in the Organizational Behavior unit at Harvard Business School. His most recent book Flying without a Net was recognized by the editors of Amazon Publishing as one of the top ten books written on leadership in this century.
Since 1997 DeLong has taught over twenty thousand MBAs and executives, both on campus and around the globe, and is internationally recognized for his teaching, writing, and course development. DeLong teaches courses focused on leadership, organizational behavior, managing human capital, and career management. He received his Phd from Purdue University and was a visiting scholar at MIT. Before joining the Harvard faculty, DeLong was chief development officer and managing director of Morgan Stanley Group, Inc., where he was responsible for the firm’s human capital and focused on issues of organizational strategy and organizational change.
In the webinar, DeLong will discuss his most recent book, Teaching by Heart, which summarizes insights gained from more than 40 years of teaching and managing. The book illustrates how teachers can both lift people up and let them down. It proposes that the best teachers are also leaders, and the best leaders are also teachers. DeLong explores how the most effective teachers and leaders form covenants with their students and employees, as opposed to mere contracts. In examining how to lead and teach, DeLong takes the reader inside his own head and heart. His thoughts – based on deep experience – will be of interest to business leaders, managers, teachers and all those fascinated by the art of teaching – and inspiring others.
