Hospitality and The Infinite Game #009: Net Positive

Creating a green and equal world needs to be a mission for all companies, not a side project. But it’s a courageous mission that can feel overwhelming, so there is a great book that can give you that much-needed direction –‘Net Positive: How Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take’ by Andrew S. Winston (Consultant on corporate strategy) and Paul Polman (ex-Unilever CEO). The authors show business leaders how to take on humanity's greatest and most urgent challenges—climate change and inequality—and build a thriving business as a result.

In this episode, we sat down in the studio to unpack some key insights from the book, as well as how businesses can create positive byproducts, celebrate the mini revolutions, understand your business ecosystem, and the legacy of nurturing great talent… so when they leave they are better off and can continue serving the world.
