About Dov Seidman

Dov Seidman’s career has focused on why HOW matters and HOW companies and their people can operate in both principled and profitable ways. That’s the inspiration behind his book, HOW: Why HOW We Do Anything Means Everything, which was recently expanded and now includes a Foreword from President Bill Clinton. Dov is the CEO of LRN. Since 1994, LRN has helped to shape winning organizational cultures inspired by sustainable values in hundreds of companies with over 20 million people working in over 100 countries. LRN is the exclusive corporate sponsor of The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity Prize in Ethics. Fortune magazine called Dov the “hottest advisor on the corporate virtue circuit,” and The Economic Times named him a “Top 60 Global Thinkers of the Last Decade.” Dov is a Harvard Law School graduate with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in moral philosophy from UCLA and a graduate degree in philosophy, politics, and economics from Oxford University.

THE HOW MISSION

The world is changing fast—we are more interconnected and interdependent than ever before. HOW we do what we do has always mattered. But today, HOW matters more than ever and in ways that it never has before. Technology has joined us together across time, distance, and culture faster than we have developed frameworks to understand one another. That’s why we must change the way we behave, consume, and build trust in both our business and personal lives. This is the impetus behind HOW.

We have to innovate in how we approach our relationships with others if we – and the organizations and institutions that we represent – are to thrive in this new world. We also have to change our idea of success. The singular pursuit of success might be the very thing that causes it to elude us. Those who instead choose to pursue significance in their work and life find success for themselves and others along the way.

HOW is a journey. We’re constantly fascinated by new ideas in organizational governance and behavior. At LRN, we put ideas, values, and principles to work for our partners, and in our own organization. We hope that our HOW communities contribute to the experimentation and dialogue, too. The real inspiration behind any idea, or any movement for change, comes from the community engaging with that idea. We ask you to join our community, and make us part of yours.
