Each week on Real World Leaders, Herb Cohen hosts a forum for business CEOs and underserved high school students to connect and share ideas. In this unique format, students interview CEOs about the personality traits that led them to their chosen careers and what their post-high school professional journeys entailed.
During these “Career Conversations”, the students develop greater confidence in their abilities and a clear sense of their strengths and natural talents by interviewing well-respected CEOs running multi-million dollar businesses.
The authentic conversations that ensue create an emotional bridge between the CEOs and students and a path forward for underserved youth to take the next steps in developing a successful career. Listen as these young adults co-host interviews and appreciate the childhood commonalities with the CEOs, as well as develop confidence and build personal relationships and career networks.
Real World Leaders is hosted by Herb Cohen, host and co-founder of Executive Leaders Radio. Cohen has fine-tuned the art of connecting CEO’s life stories with their successes, a key ingredient with helping listeners relate and appreciate them as potential role models. An active entrepreneur in his own right since the age of 19, Cohen has co-founded several small-businesses and organizations including, QuiqMeds, Pennsylvania Private Investors Group, The Pros Video and The Pros Entertainers. His academic innovations include co-founding the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Entrepreneurial Network, Fairleigh Dickinson Entrepreneurial Center, and the Center for the Advancement of Study of Entrepreneurship at Temple University.
