BW CEO Bob Chapman often tells the story of a speaker at the Aspen Institute asking his audience of successful business executives a provocative question:

“As we continue to do good,” he said, “can we do less harm?”

Businesses destroy lives all the time. Not just by being poor partners to their consumers or communities, but through poor leadership and work environments where the people feel overlooked or disregarded.

But what if businesses could be instruments of healing instead of destruction?

Our good friend Raj Sisodia and his co-writer, Michael Gelb, have written a wonderful examination of how business can be a force for good in the world with their book, The Healing Organization.

We at BW encourage you to buy it, read it and take it to heart. Consider the stories they tell of companies who have found a better way to do business for all their stakeholders and ask yourself how you can contribute in your organization to create a better world.

Raj and Michael talk about their new book and share their valuable insights on this episode of our podcast. You can listen through your favorite podcast provider or through the link in the header photo above.
