Celebrate Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday & Human Flourishing

April 13, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$25.00

History offers insightful, inspirational lessons regarding the possibilities and limits of human nature. No one is better at distilling and presenting those insights in ways that are valuable for improving business cultures than Dr. Thomas Krannawitter.

Thomas Krannawitter founded Upward Business Academy (UBA) for three reasons:

  1. It is beautiful to behold human beings creating new wealth, flourishing, and prospering.
  2. Human flourishing is inseparable from the entrepreneurial spirit and the entrepreneurial spirit is the core of the very idea of business.
  3. Helping businesses strengthen their employee cultures results in more people creating new wealth, flourishing, and prospering.

Dr. Krannawitter has been studying these curious features of modern business culture and testing solutions for decades. He earned a Master’s degree and Ph.D. from the School of Politics & Economics at the Claremont Graduate University in California. With a focus on history and political economy, Dr. Krannawitter turned his research into a training platform that offers value for business owners, employees, and customers.

Prior to launching UBA, Dr. Krannawitter taught at Claremont McKenna College, Hillsdale College, and George Mason University.  He is one of the principal instructors for the Leadership Program of the Rockies, based in Colorado, and he frequently advises businesses and charitable organizations on communications, cultural development, and strategy. He is also the proprietor of Speakeasyideas.com, which provides ideas-based solutions to problems best discussed over drinks and cigars.

He is the author of numerous books, including his 2008 Vindicating Lincoln, which was featured by The History Book Club and endorsed by the United States Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. His more recent Crisis of Our House Divided: Talking Politics Without the Noise is a communications guide for citizens who increasingly mock rather than talk to one another.
