Today on the podcast, David Dodson joins us to discuss his newest book, The Manager’s Handbook: Five Simple Steps to Build a Team, Stay Focused, Make Better Decisions, and Crush Your Competition.
Dave is on the faculty of Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, where he guides students in tactical execution. He teaches one of the most sought-after courses at Stanford, and in 2023 The Economist listed his course as one of the three “hottest” courses at Stanford. He is a recent recipient of the MSx Teaching Excellence Award and a six-time speaker in the graduation Last Lecture series. He also holds an economics and business degree from Stanford University.
His success in the classroom follows a vast experience in the trenches. Beginning as a McKinsey & Company consultant, he left to become a serial entrepreneur, where he operated six companies as CEO or Executive Chairman. He has since served as a board member of more than 40 public and private companies and has been an active investor in over 150 businesses.
He is a frequent business commentator on CNBC and Fox News, and he has been published in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Fortune Magazine, Forbes, CNN, Business Insider, The Hill, Denver Post, along with other publications.
