Matt Stinchcomb challenges us to reimagine business in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Moving beyond the notion of striving for "less bad", the idea behind the Good Work Institute is a new paradigm of business education that teaches entrepreneurs how to honor self, the planet and community with wisdom, compassion and ethics.
