0 comments

Our culture has taught us to look out for #1. We focus on our own wellbeing and ignore how our actions might impact others. But what if caring about other people makes YOUR life better? What if empathy leads to business success, better performance and a longer life?

Mark Lewis is the business mentor and coach behind the Give a Damn Movement, an initiative designed to change the world for the better by cultivating a mindset of empathy and caring for others. Through his consulting practice, Mark helps executives and entrepreneurs develop strategies for growth and prosperity around a culture of positivity. He is also the author of the Amazon bestseller Give a Damn: The Ticket to Cultural Change.

On this episode of Men on Purpose, Mark joins Ian to discuss the lack of empathy that characterizes our culture and explain how helping other people succeed leads to better performance and a longer life. He describes the relationship between business culture and the success of a company, offering insight on simple ways to build positive relationships at work and practice giving a damn in the world at large. Listen in for Mark’s take on how technology impacts communication and learn how YOU can help change society by joining the Give a Damn Movement.
