with Raj Sisodia and 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.
Recently, Raj and Sudhanshu appeared on the ILA plenary stage at its 2022 Global Conference in Washington, D.C.
