Episode Description

Galen Hair talks with Dr. Bruno Cignacco about implementing a compassionate business model. Dr. Cignacco suggests businesses should center on stakeholders’ respect, care, and service; shifting from self-focus to others-focused behaviors like generosity. He advises creating an environment of trust and backing away from fear-based management. Compassionate businesses promote cooperation, reduce negativity, and meet more than just economic needs by contributing to personal growth and society at large.
