Join us for the fifth edition of the Honors Leadership Speaker Series by welcoming our special guest, Hitendra Wadhwa, Founder of the Mentora Institute.

This fifth edition of the Honors Leadership Speaker Series will be hosted by none other than our President Emeritus, Dr. Modesto A. Maidique.

Hitendra Wadhwa will be speaking on his views of Leadership, its impact on our current world, and how leadership can affect the present and future of all generations to come.

As Professor of Practice at Columbia Business School and Founder of the Mentora Institute, Hitendra has coached dozens of Fortune 100 C-suite executives and taught 10,000+ MBAs and Executives. His class on Personal Leadership & Success is one of the most popular at Columbia Business School, for which he has won the Dean’s Award for Teaching Excellence.

Hitendra’s mission is to discover, codify and teach the laws of success in life and leadership. His research integrates the latest science of human nature, ancient wisdom, studies of great leaders, and the personal journeys of everyday heroes. Hitendra brings a mathematician’s rigor and a truth-seeker’s spirit to some of today’s most vexing questions about authenticity, success, leadership, human potential, and more.

Hitendra’s research and teaching on personal leadership have been covered by Inc., Forbes, Fortune, CNN, Psychology Today, BBC World Service, Financial Times, and Wall Street Journal. His podcast, Intersections, features acclaimed thought leaders and practitioners in the fields of human potential and leadership.
