Wisdom-Based Business Video Lectures
Make Your Business Purposeful and Profitable
At its best, business is both purposeful and profitable, dynamic and gainful, commercial and rewarding. Far from being opposites, good business and good behavior go hand-in-hand, and biblical principles can align with best practices. In Wisdom-Based Business, marketing and supply-chain professor Hannah J. Stolze draws principles from the Bible's wisdom literature and from evidence-based research to create a framework for business that is oriented toward excellence and sustainability. This study addresses import issues such as:
- The virtue of profit
- Servant leadership
- Wisdom-based values, such as long-term over short-term, stakeholders, and quality
- Beneficial outcomes of wisdom-based business, including reputation and comparative advantage
- The ultimate outcome of eternal impact
Christians working in the marketplace or training to do so will benefit from Wisdom-Based Business Video Lectures' practical guidance on how to reflect Christian values in their corporate tasks and strategies. Far from being hindrances, those values can become keys to success.
