What does it mean for a company to flourish? Profits alone aren’t enough according to Bryan Ungard Chief Purpose Officer for Decurion Management Company; the personal development of the human beings that compose a company are of equal importance. Bryan is working to reshape the relationship between employees and their company to the benefit of all. The traditional outlook is transactional, the worker is a means to another’s ends. Bryan’s job is to operate the business so there is no tradeoff between excellent business performance and human flourishing; by investing in an employee or member’s development beyond simply job training is how a business flourishes. Listen as Bryan and Carol explore the concept of an authentic human community and as Bryan lays out the four axioms for crafting a meaningful, sacred space for personal and business growth.
