Quotes from Howard Behar

“Do it because it's right, not because it's right for your resume.”

"I've been through a lot. I've had ups and downs, I've been fired and I've made mistakes," Behar says. "But at the end of the day, I came to the conclusion that there is only one role any of us will ever have and that is serving others."

"I think my role at Starbucks was that, getting everybody to understand and agree to live by that idea, that we were a people-centered company,"
