Dallas Chapter Summer Series: “Lessons in Courage and Sound Judgment from the Rise and Fall of Theranos” | WEBINAR


The University of Dallas Presents:
Lessons in Courage and Sound Judgment from the Rise and Fall of Theranos

Drawing from John Carreyrou’s account of the rise and fall of Theranos in Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, John Kaisersatt (FBFK & University of Dallas) and Brent McDaniel (KPMG) will help the audience explore practical ethical lessons for courage and sound judgment in our decision making and action... lessons we can apply in both the ordinary and the extraordinary decisions and responsibilities in our professional life. The program will explore questions and answers like: What are the habits of mind and character we need for practical wisdom? How do we develop the strengths we need? What are the hidden pitfalls that can undermine our judgment and courage? How can we learn to navigate tough decisions and know when to say “no” and when to say “go”?
