Welcome to Strategy Skills episode 192, an episode with an award-winning CEO, communications expert and advisor, Sabrina Horn. Get Sabrina’s book here:

Sabrina Horn is currently CEO of HORN Strategy, LLC, a consultancy focused on helping entrepreneurs and CEOs navigate the early stages of their businesses. She serves as an advisor and board member for a number of organizations and is a frequent speaker at industry forums and leadership conferences. She founded Horn Group, a public relations firm, with $500 and five years’ job experience, becoming one of few female CEOs in Silicon Valley in the early 1990s. Over a quarter century, her firm advised thousands of executives and their companies—from the hottest startups to the Fortune 500—doing so with a special focus on authenticity. Horn Group received national acclaim as Best US Employer and Best US Tech Agency. In 2015, Horn oversaw her firm’s successful acquisition by Finn Partners, a global marketing company.

Horn, as a young executive, learned about leadership on the job through two lenses: one, as CEO growing and running her firm, the other, as strategic advisor guiding her clients through their own unique business challenges. Through her journey, she learned that there are no shortcuts to achieving long term business success. Still, she confesses to having made many mistakes, and now in her first book, she shares what she learned about how to make it without faking it.

In this episode, Horn talked about the importance of honesty, humility and authenticity for business and humanity, and how leaders find the righteous path forward through this.

For leaders or individuals who believe in integrity as success’ recipe, this is for you.
