His previous book, “The Rise of Superman,” was the first book in history to appear on the New York Times bestseller lists in the sports, science, psychology, and business categories simultaneously.
At the AFP 2020 Executive Institute, Kotler will discuss how treasury and finance professionals can harness flow and amplify performance. Using examples drawn from multiple blue-chip enterprises, as well as his own experience working with executives, he will cutting edge neuroscience into practical, applicable steps for organizational transformation.
