My guest for this episode, is Russell Eisenstat, an inspirational leader whose mission has been to develop leaders and organizations that put people at the center together with profit. We explored so many critical leadership topics like how to balance leadership focus between people and bottom line, how to engage the whole organization, how to earn trust, and how to develop a shared emotional resonant purpose.
In his very humble voice, Russ shared his reflections on his own successful leadership journey and offered advice to organizational leaders including young aspiring ones.
Russ is, Emeritus Executive Director and co-founder of the Center for Higher Ambition Leadership and Former President and co-Founder of TruePoint, a management consultancy firm. He served on the faculty of the Harvard Business School and spent five years at McKinsey & Company. He is a co-author of the Higher Ambition, a book that shows how great CEOs around the world create superior long term economic and social value and many articles in Harvard Business Review.
