Dr Harari brings provocative new perspectives on competitive advantage, organizational change and transformational leadership. As a leading management consultant and best-selling author, he brings over 20 years of seasoned professional experience to the public speaking forum.
The Financial Times has cited Dr. Harari as one of the "Top 40 Business and Management Minds in the World" and featured him in the fall 2001 book Business Minds. Harari believes that, in the chaotic competitiveness of today's markets, bold and often radical management approaches are the key to top performance. He has also found that long-term financial success depends primarily on leaders' abilities to capitalize on globalization and technological advance and to launch dramatic breakthroughs in innovation, service, collaboration, mobility and speed.
In his seven books, Dr. Harari describes the strategic decisions and leadership behaviors that propel organizations into a successful position of competitive advantage. His 2002 book The Leadership Secrets of Colin Powell reached the best-seller lists of The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and The Wall St. Journal. In this book, Harari outlines 16 elegant principles of leadership, which he has drawn from Powell's career. He then applies those principles to corporate and government arenas and demonstrates what transformational leaders do to take their organizations to new heights. In 2003, Harari wrote the follow-up corporate handbook The Powell Principles.
In 2000, Dr. Harari co-authored a revolutionary book, Beep Beep! Competing in the Age of the Road Runner. This book received rave reviews from Michael Dell, U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas Donahue and Fast Company founding editor, Alan Webber, among others. The book focuses on thriving in a globally networked, real-time "Road Runner" marketplace.
Dr. Harari also penned the best-seller Leapfrogging The Competition: Five Giant Steps To Becoming A Market Leader, published by Prima. The first edition was rated by Management General as one of the ten best business books of 1997. Both editions received accolades from Colin Powell, Tom Peters, Michael Dell, Bill Marriott, and Target CEO Bob Ulrich, to name a few. He was co-author of Jumping The Curve: Innovation And Strategic Choice In An Age of Transition, which was rated by the prestigious Library Journal as one of the top 40 business books of 1994. Said Charles Schwab on the book jacket: "If I were to recommend that my managers read just one business book this year, Jumping the Curve would be it."
As a senior consultant with the Tom Peters Group from 1984 to 1996, Harari was one of its most requested speakers. From 1997 to 1999, Harari was the first designated "management expert" for Time Vista, Time magazine's direct resources interactive website for businesses around the world. Harari was a senior columnist for Management Review from 1991 to 2000 and for the following two years he was the lead columnist for the online magazine Mworld.org, the American Management Association's informational web site for the management community. Since 2002, Dr. Harari has contributed regular cutting-edge "e-documents" on business strategy and leadership to Amazon.com.
Harari currently sits on the board of directors of two companies and is also on the board of the Foundation for Full Disclosure and Ethical Leadership, which is dedicated to elevating the integrity of corporations and capital markets.
Harari received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley and currently teaches in the MBA and executive MBA programs at the University of San Francisco.
