Picture, if you can, a company that doesn’t think of itself as a company, but as a community of people working to make a difference in the world, where the mission matters as much as the bottom line. A company that isn't afraid to talk about the importance of "love" in business, and is committed to weaving gratitude, generosity, care, compassion, and forgiveness deep into the fabric of the workplace.
That company is Whole Foods, which CEO John Mackey built from a single store in Austin, Texas in 1978, into a leading organic grocer with more than 95,000 team members.
In this episode of the New Human Movement, we talk to John about reconciling purpose and profits, encouraging grassroots innovation, and building a company based on love instead of fear.
