In this episode of Both Success And Integrity With Bessi Graham, Bessi delves into the “two camps trap”; where there is an External Camp that sees doing good sit outside the core business and only relate to donations of profit or time; and the Internal Camp that develops a business model which actively embeds contribution into how you run the business itself.
Bessi believes and stresses the significance of adopting a “both and” mindset as a business leader. Thus, the ability of businesses to make a positive impact on society while remaining profitable is truly remarkable. There are two main approaches to achieving this: through philanthropic efforts and charitable donations or by incorporating the pursuit of social good into all aspects of the company’s operations. Ultimately, it’s a matter of changing one’s perspective and discovering innovative ways to make a difference.
