John Chambers, a visionary from Silicon Valley, talks about the lessons that helped a dyslexic kid from West Virginia become one of the best business leaders in the world and a simple router company become a global tech giant.
When Chambers joined Cisco in 1991, the company had about $70 million in sales, 400 employees, and only one product. When he quit as CEO in 2015, he left behind a $47 billion tech giant that was the backbone of the internet and a leader in everything from cybersecurity to data center convergence. Along the way, he bought 180 businesses and made more than 10,000 employees rich. Chambers is known as an innovator, a leader in his field, and one of the best CEOs in the world. He has outlasted and outsmarted almost every competitor that has ever tried to take on Cisco, including Nortel, Lucent, Alcatel, IBM, Dell, and Hewlett-Packard, to name a few.
Chambers is talking about his unique ways to win in the digital world. From his early lessons and struggles with dyslexia in West Virginia to his big bets and fights with some of the biggest names in tech, Chambers gives readers a playbook for how to act before the market changes, use customers for strategy, partner for growth, build teams, and disrupt themselves. He also used these lessons to change the way government works, which has helped world leaders like French President Emmanuel Macron and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi make new growth models.
As CEO of JC2 Ventures, he now invests in a new generation of startups that will change the game by helping their founders become great leaders and grow their businesses.
Connecting the Dots will become a business classic because it gives readers hard-won insights and essential tools to help them succeed in the fast-changing digital age.
