Dave Blanchard shares a “redemptive” vision for business–what Praxis calls “Redemptive Entrepreneurship”. With the help of detailed slides, he walks through the elements of redemptive strategy, redemptive execution and redemptive leadership and explains the key pathways to redemptive work–leaders transforming their internal script and then pursuing the redemptive edge of their business. After sharing his own story of realizing his pursuit of wealth lacked meaning, Blanchard asks us to reflect on the “good life” we are pursuing through our work? Is it one of material wealth and consumption or one of sacrifice and virtue? He then presents the stark contrast between businesses that seek to exploit culture and use people and businesses that seek to renew culture and honor people. Recognizing that redemptive work is not easy, Blanchard challenges us to consider what the redemptive edge of our work might look like?
