Jeff Weiner is intrigued by the future of work and the dramatic changes that have occurred in the workplace in recent years. Weiner has been the CEO of LinkedIn for a decade, and under his leadership the company has grown from 338 employees to over 10,000. Annual revenues now top $3 billion.

In his View From The Top conversation at Stanford GSB, Weiner spoke with Al El Badry, MBA ’17, about immigration in the United States and why he models his management style after the Dalai Lama.

Stanford GSB’s View From The Top is the dean’s premier speaker series. It launched in 1978 and is supported in part by the F. Kirk Brennan Speaker Series Fund. During student-led interviews and before a live audience, leaders from around the world share insights on effective leadership, their personal core values, and lessons learned throughout their career.
