<- Back to podcast home

Episode Summary

In this episode of the Modern Facilities Management Podcast, host Griffin Hamilton interviews Mark Mears, a renowned author, keynote speaker, and visionary business leader. Mark has driven innovation and profitable growth among world-class, high-profile brands such as PepsiCo/Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, Frito-Lay, JCPenney, NBCUniversal, and The Cheesecake Factory.

Today, Mark serves as Chief Growth Officer for LEAF Growth Ventures, LLC—a consulting firm helping individuals, teams, and organizations find purpose in fulfilling their true growth potential while making a positive, lasting difference in the world.

Mark discusses his latest book, "The Purposeful Growth Revolution: 4 Ways to Grow from Leader to Legacy Builder," which explores a new approach to how we work in the modern economy. He believes that we are not just employees but "whole" individuals, and our work should encompass more than just our job functions. Currently, most of us spend the workweek solely focused on our vocation and struggle to balance the other aspects of our lives. This imbalance leads to disengagement, burnout, and negative consequences for our mental, physical, relational, and spiritual well-being.

During the interview, Mark emphasizes that Purposeful Growth is not only crucial for surviving but also thriving in the face of an impending recession. Mark challenges the idea put forth by Simon Sinek that it's about the "What" we do, arguing instead that it's about the "Who" we are.

Tune in to this thought-provoking conversation with Mark Mears as he reveals practical strategies for achieving Purposeful Growth and creating a fulfilling work-life balance in the New Economy.
