Investing in Leadership to Advance Capitalism and the World

“The time has come for corporations to extend their time, their products, their expertise, and their values in innovative ways,” Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks Coffee wrote in “Invest in Communities to Advance Capitalism” a recent Harvard Business Review post. I fully agree. Furthermore, for more than two decades, I have seen that the greatest impact that companies can have in advancing regional and global education, healthcare, the environment, and economic development in order to strengthen their own business prospects is by training and placing their executives on NGO/nonprofit boards through a thoughtful and purposeful process.

Preparing and engaging company executives and professionals on NGO/nonprofit boards based on their individual interests and qualifications results in many wins.
