‘The David Rubenstein Show’ explores successful leadership

What makes a truly great leader? And how can leadership be developed into a force for true achievement? Washington, D.C.-based financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein sits down with influential figures to discuss their personal and professional choices and explore their paths to success. “The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations” comes to Arizona PBS Fridays at 7:30 p.m., starting Oct. 4.

“The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations” includes discussions with former U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton; Comcast CEO Brian Roberts; Nike co-founder and chairman emeritus Phil Knight; cellist Yo-Yo Ma; Fidelity chair and CEO Abigail Johnson; retired general and former politician Colin Powell; and former U.S. Secretaries of State Condoleeza Rice and James A. Baker III.

As a peer in business, Rubenstein asks his guests frank questions, uncovering the moments that define how they think, lead and give back. David M. Rubenstein is the co-founder and co-CEO of The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest and most diverse private equity groups. A graduate of Duke University and the University of Chicago Law School, he is chairman of the board of trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, regent of the Smithsonian Institution, and president of the Economic Club of Washington. He is also a noted philanthropist who has loaned his copies of artifacts including the Magna Carta, Declaration of Independence, and Emancipation Proclamation to national museums.
