Chris Zook

Chris Zook, best-selling author of The Founder’s Mentality: How to Overcome the Predictable Crises of Growth, and partner at Bain & Company, discusses how the most successful companies maintain the founder’s mentality—an insurgent’s clear mission and purpose, an unambiguous owner mindset, and a relentless focus on the front line. Based on 5 years of research, visiting 40 countries, conducting 150 interviews, and creating a database of over 8000 companies, Chris teaches us how leaders can overcome the predictable crises in a company’s lifecycle and set it on a path of sustainable and profitable growth.
