The Growth Collective

Sep 20, 2022

There is a belief that we can all get what we want if we just pull up our bootstraps and go for it.  But what happens to those who simply don’t have boots?  It’s tough for someone to move forward if they don’t have the basics.  

This episode is about a business that looks at business differently…My guest for this episode is Tom Vozzo, CEO of Homeboy Industries.

Tom left his career in corporate America convinced there had to be a better way to define success. In 2012, Tom became the first-ever CEO of Homeboy Industries, the largest and most successful gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world.

This discussion hits on a lot of opportunities for business to think differently – for the benefit of all involved.   From letting go of judgement, to creating a space where employees feel loved and supported the experience Tom shares can apply to any organization.  

Listen in as Tom shares a few of the 55 rules he believes more businesses need to break, speaks the power of asking employees what they need and why love, kinship and compassion are the key to creating a workplace where employees can thrive.
