Guests: Raj Sisodia & Sudhanshu Palsule
In this episode, Raj Sisodia and Sudhanshu Palsule explore the power of conscious leadership. With Conscious Capitalism, this can inspire a higher purpose for businesses, transcending the old Industrial Era story of profit-driven motives. The world has changed dramatically, but our leadership and business models have yet to catch up.
United in their belief that business can be a force of good, they share their research and personal journeys as they forged new leadership principles of purpose, wholeness, and healing.
Here's what Raj, Sudhanshu, and host Maureen Metcalf cover:
- The four pillars of 21st Century leadership (and business);
- The importance of evolving from a shareholder mindset to a stakeholder mindset; and
- How leaders and their organizations profit by combining the best of their masculine and feminine cultural energies.
