This week’s episode is mandatory listening for anyone searching for a career with meaning. Our guest Andrew Hoffman, Holcim Professor of Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan, has powerful advice for engaging in work that has a purpose. Andrew’s book “Management as a Calling” outlines why business leaders can and should see their work as a way to solve societal problems.
Andrew teaches across disciplines in the Ross School of Business and the School for Environment & Sustainability. He told us that an interdisciplinary approach is key to combating climate change. In this episode, Andrew tells us about his non-linear path to making an impact, the difference between a job and a vocation, and the challenge for the next generation of leaders.
