Author and speaker
I just listened to the September 29 episode, and I think that this is one of the most important messages to CEOs, managing partners, and owners. Organizations need to align their brands with their social platform rather than avoid taking a stance on social issues. Ben and Jerry's models this and have experience year-over-year growth. Thanks to Scott Engler for raising awareness about leadership and the need to move society towards ethical thinking.
