The Art of Connection:
A Conversation with Eileen Fisher & Michael Gelb

When Eileen Fisher started her clothing line in 1984, she didn’t know anything about business. So she relied on what came to her naturally: asking questions, welcoming other people’s ideas, bringing people together, and encouraging collaboration.

In this conversation, Eileen and Michael Gelb will explore this innovative style of leadership—one in which process matters as much as product, people are valued as much as profit, and where the key to everything is connection. Eileen’s personal stories and Michael’s keen insights into the art of connection will offer a unique understanding of these leadership principles in action and invite us to imagine new possibilities for the future.

Michael Gelb, the internationally bestselling author of How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day, is the world’s leading authority on applying creativity to problem-solving in the areas of personal and organizational development. A pioneer in the fields of executive coaching and innovative leadership, and a sought-after speaker and seminar leader with more than 30 years of experience, Michael’s clients include global companies like Microsoft, Nike, and DuPont.

His books have been translated into more than 20 languages and sold more than one million copies—his publications which number over a dozen include Creativity on Demand, Innovate Like Edison, Discover Your Genius, and Thinking for a Change.

Eileen Fisher, Founder and Chairwoman of EILEEN FISHER, INC., has been on a decades-long journey of awakening to her purpose, exploring the mind-body connection, and striving to live more consciously. Her commitment to lifelong learning and alignment with what truly matters have led her to create a unique company culture of collaboration and caring and to spearhead initiatives that empower others and create a better, more sustainable world.

A leading voice for “business as unusual”, Eileen has been recognized with many prestigious awards, including the Fashion Group International’s Sustainability Award in 2015; the 2012 Leaders of Change award from the Global Conference for Social Change; and the Board of Directors Award from the Metropolitan New York Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women.
