Episode 3: Jeff Henderson
BUILD A COMMUNITY, NOT A BUSINESS
Entrepreneur and thought leader, JEFF HENDERSON, makes it clear that if we want to change the world with our products or our mission, then we must shift the focus of our messaging and marketing. We must transform our organizations to be people-centric. Working with companies like Chick-fil-A and the Atlanta Braves, then serving as a pastor for 15 years at North Point, Jeff knows what success looks like for healthy organizations.
It was fun sitting down with my friend Jeff when he came to visit St. Louis. We talked about the powerful message in his latest book, Know What You’re FOR: A Growth Strategy for Work, an Even Better Strategy for Life, what he learned from Evel Knievel, and what business leaders should be doing in a post-2020 world.
