In this episode, I speak with Matt Semadeni, Professor of Strategy and Dean's Council Distinguished Scholar at the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
In our conversation, we talk about CEO political ideology. We discuss how political activism has shaped corporate leadership, strategy, and investing - which pulls the conversation in all sorts of interesting directions. Finally, Matt shares his views about how organizations can approach politics by recognizing ideological differences and avoiding the negative contentious behaviors.
