We live in a world of extraordinary pain and suffering. Public confidence in major corporations is at an all-time low. Why? Too many businesses exploit their people and harm their communities for short-term profit. If we are not consciously part of the healing, we are probably part of the hurting. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Business can become the primary agent for healing society.
This is not about healing businesses; it is about business as healing. Business can take wounded people, broken communities and damaged ecosystems and make them whole again – and businesses that operate in this way will be more successful and profitable over time. Raj will share stories of such businesses and extract lessons from them.
