How to Out-behave the Competition with Dov Seidman

It once wasn’t uncommon to hear a boss tell their employees “just get it done. I don’t care how.” However, in the last decade, organizations have evolved. Now, we often hear leaders priding themselves on encouraging their employees to speak up. 

But, what if leaders created environments and cultures in which it didn’t take an act of courage for employees to speak their minds?  In this episode, we explore how leaders can create a framework and playbook for moral leadership at their organizations that allows employees to out-behave and consequently out-perform the competition. 

Meet Dov:

Dov Seidman is the founder and chairman of LRN, an ethics compliance training firm, as well as the founder and chairman of The HOW Institute for Society, which is dedicated to infusing ethics into corporate culture. He is also the author of the bestselling book “HOW: Why HOW We Do Anything Means Everything.”

In this episode, host Gautam Mukunda speaks with Dov about the framework for moral leadership and why organizations benefit from building a do-it-right culture.
