Episode 18: The Inside-Out Approach To Strategy

Jennifer Mulholland & Jeff Shuck
October 15, 2020

In today's episode of our podcast, Plenty for Everyone, we take a look at the role of passion in strategy.

It's widely accepted that a sustainable, scalable future for your organization comes from finding innovative ways to serve the needs of your constituents. Cultivating an outward-orientation is a key driver of growth. 

But that outward-facing view is only a part of success. Growth also comes from creating an internal environment and culture to succeed – from what exists inside of you and your team. In other words, from your heart. 

In a world driven by metrics, measures, and goals, your passion is the unquantifiable differentiator to your organization's success. Your passion is what unleashes a contagious, inspiring, and connective force for good. 

Join us as we dive in with Mike Ziener, Executive Director of the Illinois state chapter of the American Cancer Society, to discuss the inside-out approach to strategy, and why passion and wellbeing are key levers of growth for their team to fund the cure to cancer.
