Doug Rauch, the former president of Trader Joe’s, now the CEO of the non-profit, Conscious Capitalism, sat down with Cinderella CEO On Air in Chicago to record a fascinating interview. Rauch, still a grocery guru, who cares deeply about the power of good that business brings to the table, recently started a new retail concept called the Daily Table. Busy leading the National Conscious Capitalism movement, he shares his story of how he started with Trader Joe’s, and how he helped grow the grocery store chain. He gives advice on how to avoid “crapitalism,” how to excel as an entrepreneur, and why listeners may want to consider becoming intrapreneurs within a company. And of course, he talks about Conscious Capitalism and how practicing its tenets are key to a company’s success, and ideally making capitalism […]

For those of you who don’t know what age range the Millennial group refers to…the “Millennials” are the generation born between 1975 and 1995 (18 years of age to 38). There’s a whole bunch of Millennials, the next biggest population bubble to come along since the Boomers (1945 to 1964). One of the great Milliennials I’ve come to know is a young woman named Sylvia Woloszyn. I met Sylvia when she attended my class on special event marketing at NYU. I soon found out that Sylvia is both soft spoken and brilliant. So when Sylvia graduated, I was thankful she agreed to work with my company and help it grow into a larger entity. She has a full time position with an airline company and works remotely for Broussard Global on a part time basis. […]

(This is an excerpt from my speech given in Dallas, at the invitation of Linda Descano, president of Citi’s Women & Co and head of digital media.) Women’s issues seem to be at the forefront. Through the fog of controversy, we are getting some kickin’ coverage on the issues. From the Atlantic Monthly, July 2012, article by Ann Marie Slaughter, saying women can’t have it all to McKinsey & Co, releasing the “Women Matter” studies, stating that keeping women in the workforce are our competitive edge in business. Women Matter Asia supports the same. If you agree or disagree with Professor Slaughter’s article, you can tell her on Twitter @SlaughterAM When I was Head of Marketing and Branding at MPI (Meeting Professionals International), from 2006-2008, we learned then that the wealth of the world was […]

What makes workplace diversity potentially one of the most polarizing issues today in business? I have rarely, if ever, worked for someone who was my mirror image. However, many, if not most of us, feel more comfortable and more at ease with someone who shares our same belief system, likes and dislikes … and, yes, even looks like we do. What I’ve just described will solicit a different reaction from those filtering my words. For example, those reading who are between 35 to 65+ years of age may have quite a different reaction from someone 18 to 35 years of age. Within this dichotomy of perspectives rests our hope, our future and our burden in business and society today. I have been fortunate to teach undergraduate and graduate classes at New York University in the […]
