Build a team of mentors: A Strategy Session w/A-Rod

alex_rodriguez

To win at scale, you need more than great players – you need a team of great coaches. Alex Rodriguez learned this in baseball, and now as an investor at A-Rod Corp., where his mentor is none other than Warren Buffet. Alex and Reid, with Katia Beauchamp of Birchbox and HBS professor Mihir Desai, take questions from the HBS class of ’21.

“Mentorship isn’t a transaction – it’s a relationship and building bridges.”

— Alex Rodriguez
