Raj Sisodia is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, award-winning professor and thought leader, and a man on a heart-fueled mission of organizational healing and responsibility.
To say Raj’s life experience is far ranging is somewhat like saying outer space is “big.”
Born in India into the Rajput subset of the Warrior caste in a system he describes as feudal, Raj moved to several locations – from Barbados to California to Canada - over a short span of his early years.
He tells the story of how a group of his friends showing up one morning on their way to an academic event altered his life’s path…
Throughout this first half of our conversation, Raj shares the rich, somewhat circuitous journey to finding his way home to his calling – the healing, life-affirming work he does in the world of Conscious Capitalism and organizational leadership.
