Three decades ago, at the age of 32 and despite his considerable ambivalence, Tony Schwartz made a life-changing decision to write the “The Art of the Deal” with Donald Trump. It was a choice with ramifications that he could never have imagined — for himself and, arguably, for the world.
At the time, the experience of working with Trump influenced Tony to turn his life in a wholly different direction. Until then, he had been a journalist. For the nearly three decades since The Art of the Deal, Tony’s work has focused on the invisible internal barriers that prevent individuals and organizations from performing at their best. The Energy Project, which Tony founded in 2003, works with large organizations such as Google, the U.S. Airforce, 3M, the Los Angeles Police Department, Goldman Sachs and Save the Children — to create more human and humane workplaces.
Tony’s talk will focus on the unusual journey he’s taken and the lessons he’s learned along the way.
