The Business Philosopher Within You

Podcast

Human Strategies for Building a Self-Sustaining Organization

Welcome to The Business Philosopher Within You podcast, where we help our listeners explore and unlock the Business Philosopher within them so that they can build a human organization that is high-performing, self-sustaining and scalable for generations to come.

Why this Podcast

Today's business management philosophies are deeply rooted in the Scientific Management Theories developed in the 1800, which systematically removed from management many qualities that made us human. 

As a results, our business organizations are running at a fraction of their maximum capacity while causing disengagement in our employees and dissatisfaction from their work, often resulting in burnout, despair and existential crisis that come from unfulfilling work.

Forge Human Organizations that Outlast You

On this podcast, we help our listeners explore and unlock the Business Philosopher within them so that they can build human organizations that are high-performing, self-sustaining and scalable for generations to come.

Our conversations explore frameworks, ideas, strategies and tools that help us bring out the inner business philosopher in all of us.

01

Build a Self-Perpetuating Business

When a business is overly dependent on the charismatic leadership of one person or a few key people in the organization, it remains an unsustainable organization which can’t scale beyond their initial stages of success.

We discuss management strategies that engage the people in our business to the core of their humanness so that they become self-empowered organization that can self-sustain for generations.

02

Inspire a Self-Empowered Organization

When the organization is dependent on the performance and personal leadership of a few key people, it cannot create a culture of self-empowerment in the organization.

We discuss strategies to infuse humanness into organizational systems, processes and Standard Operating Processes so that they can inspire a self-empowered organization who can truly scale their operations beyond the dependency of a few people.

03

Enable High-Performing Work Teams

When our employees reserve their best work for part-time side hustles, weekend charity projects and evening hobbies, our teams can’t perform at their peak levels.

We bring perspectives on empathetic leadership that allow us to engage our teams at the core of their humanity so that they perform at their peak capacity while being fulfilled and satisfied with their work.

Who is a Business Philosopher?

We come from the mindset that business builders and team leaders who build resilient, long-lasting organizations share three qualities: 1) They do their own thinking, 2) They think about human condition, and 3) They apply their thinking to produce concrete results in the cold, hard realities of the marketplace.

In other words, they are their own best business philosophers.
