I lead today with some breaking, personal news.
Starting next week, I’ll be joining Fortune CEO Alan Murray on our newest podcast, Leadership Next. You can find the podcast here.
The podcast was launched pre-pandemic, but Alan’s original concept is more on point than ever.
“I launched this podcast because I’m convinced something big is happening in the world of business,” he recently told the CEO Daily audience. “The rules of the game have changed. I’ve covered the intersection of business and society for four decades, but it’s only in the last few years that I’ve started hearing the best leaders talk more earnestly about how to increase their positive impact on society.”
Alan has already recorded some great interviews—with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson, and Regeneron’s president and chief science officer George Yancopoulos on fighting COVID-19. But now, as we watch governments around the world address the pandemic with varying degrees of efficacy and success, the need for business to step up is clear.
I’d argue it always was. Please stay tuned.
As always, I want to hear from you. How are you faring? What do you need to hear, read, learn?
To inclusion and beyond,
