Program Highlights

  • Why my self-interest is connected to your self-interest.
  • Creating a powerful team by matching strengths with weaknesses.
  • Valuing the process as much as the outcome--why a narrow focus on results alone is shortsighted.

George Zimmer has succeeded in the retail industry by breaking many of the industry rules--especially those rules that seem to call for employees to receive low pay, little training, and lots of part-time work. The core of his company's success is its corporate culture, based on "servant leadership" values. These values seek to involve others in decision-making and enhance the personal growth of workers while improving the quality of organizational life. In this wide-ranging talk, Zimmer explains how his experience proves that a culture based on strong ethical values can succeed even within a competitive business environment.

George Zimmer is a unique individual - a company co-founder, entrepreneur, TV icon and CEO who has transitioned his company from one store, opened in Houston in 1973, to over 650 stores with $1.3 billion in sales and a listing on the New York Stock Exchange. His humanity has developed simultaneously with the growth of his business acumen, creating a Fortune 1000 company with a spiritual corporate culture. One of Zimmer's proudest achievements is the inclusion of Men's Wearhouse on Fortune's list of "The 100 Best Companies To Work For."
