On this episode of #CompactNationPod, we explore the “who?” “what?” “why?” and “how?” of mission-driven leaders with co-author of the book Your Life is Your Message, Mark Gesner. Hear about how the development of the book was influenced by a trip through India in which he and Cardinal Stritch faculty studied the philosophy and principles of Gandhi by making it real--engaging with real people who are living Gandhi’s principles today. Plus, hear from engaged faculty member Cheryl Moore about how this experience contributed to her approach toward community engagement in business classes.
