The Lesson: Expressing genuine interest in learning, in a job, in what other people have to say, in showing up even when you aren’t necessarily needed, this is a behavior which boardrooms around the world will want to vacuum up, as long as one makes certain they see it.
Notable Excerpt: “One of the things I’ve learned is that every human adds value to our collective story; you have to believe that. If you’re really going to believe in making the world a better place, you have to believe that every human adds value. And if you believe that then you’re open to having meaningful conversations with everyone no matter where they are in this moment in life, so I don’t care if I’m on a bus, or a plane, or a train, or the street, or the slum, or the boardroom, I’m genuinely interested in learning from the people next to me.”
The Guest: Carrie Rich believes in making the world better through business and leadership. That is why she co-founded The Global Good Fund ten years ago to invest in high potential, overlooked social entrepreneurs. She also founded the Global Impact Fund, which is dedicated to investing in socially impactful businesses primarily led by black, brown and women founders.
