TEDxUNPLAZA co-curator and executive producer Kunal Sood invited Kramer so the audience could experience the passion and expertise Sood saw in Kraemer’s classroom. Sood is a student in the Kellogg Executive MBA Program.

Kraemer, also an executive partner at private equity firm Madison Dearborn, gave four leadership principles he developed while chairman and CEO of the $9 billion global healthcare company Baxter International Inc.:

  1. Self-reflection: “I think we can start to separate noise from what really, really matters.”
  2. Balance: “Seek to understand before you’re understood.”
  3. True self-confidence: “You surround yourself with people that are much better than you on the things you’re not that good at.”
  4. Genuine humility: “Remember the cube. Most of us, when we started in a cube, whenever that was, we knew how we wanted to be treated.”
