We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways. Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
