Named one of the “Top 60 Global Thinkers of the Last Decade” by The Economic Times, “the hottest advisor on the corporate virtue circuit” by Fortune Magazine and a “Game Changer” by Time Magazine, CEO, author and thought leader Dov Seidman has built a career, and pioneered an industry, around the idea that the most principled businesses are the most profitable and sustainable.
Twenty years ago, Dov founded LRN with a powerful vision that the world would be a better place if more people did the right thing. From that basic notion, he has grown a successful business that has helped to shape the way millions of employees, managers and leaders behave and interact all over the globe.
Today, LRN helps more than 500 leading companies worldwide develop values-based corporate cultures and inspire principled performance in business. He is the author of the award-winning book, “HOW: Why HOW We Do Anything Means Everything.” Since 2007, HOW has been published across the globe.
Led by a lifelong pursuit and passion for ethical leadership, he and his company LRN became the exclusive corporate sponsors of the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity Prize in Ethics in 2008, as the institution was in its 20th year of celebrating ethical decision making among America’s youth. Dov is a member of the board at the 92nd Street Y.
Dov was honored as the 2014 Corporate Organizational Excellence in Organizational Development Award winner for demonstrating a more than 10-year commitment to organizational development and effectiveness.
Dov earned simultaneous bachelor’s and master’s degrees, summa cum laude, in philosophy from UCLA. He later earned a B.A. with honors in philosophy, politics and economics from Oxford University. He graduated with honors from Harvard Law School.
