Watch the episode:

“An organization can only grow its reach and business impact as much as the leadership is willing to grow as humans.” 

This week, I chat with Tami Simon, the founder of Sounds True—an internationally recognized wisdom-based multimedia company with a mission to wake up the world. Sounds True publishes work from game-changing authors, teachers, and mindful leaders with topics like meditation, mindfulness, psychology, trauma therapy, leadership, neuroscience, and more. 

Tami also founded The Inner MBA, a transformative initiative created with Sounds True, LinkedIn, Wisdom 2.0, and MindfulNYU to train the next generation of conscious business leaders. The course teaches participants the inner skills required for success in today’s modern business environment.

In our conversation, we talk about how Tami built a multimillion company based upon positive, mindful values, why emotional intelligence is a critical trait for strong leaders, and the ups and downs of running a values-based organization.

In this episode of Leading with Genuine Care, you’ll also learn:

  • How Tami found her passion for mindfulness
  • About creating a culture dedicated to positive growth and values
  • Why an ESOP didn’t work out for Sounds True
  • How mindfulness creates more effective leaders
  • If a company can be owned by its purpose
  • Which books most influenced Tami’s life
  • Why do businesses need to become a force for good
  • About creating a more diverse workplace
  • Why businesses must be aligned their core values
  • If inner skills are more important than hard skills
  • The power of growth and transformation for leaders
  • Why emotional intelligence isn’t optional
  • What the Inner MBA program is
  • Why brands can’t fake positive core values
  • And so much more!
