Welcome to the Business Gist where we explore the

Human Side of the Bottom Line

We’re happy that you found us and hope you stay awhile. At the Business Gist we’re exploring social topics that affect employees and companies, taking conversations beyond common business topics leaders generally discuss and focusing on the human side of the bottom line. We’re inviting business leaders to share their unique perspectives on topics and actionable ideas for other business leaders to consider at their companies. We know not everyone is going to agree with what is discussed - but that’s okay. Our goal is to help people listen to each other, consider other perspectives that may get them thinking differently about a subject. So hop into the conversation, share your perspective and tell us what you think.
