How do you succeed in business?

The current corporate culture showcases power and control from the top to manage down to the bottom, and it influences even how small businesses structure themselves.

It’s not working.

Charles Koch is chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, one of the largest privately held American companies and who Forbes cites as the 15th wealthiest man in the U.S..

Koch Industries has over 130,000 employees. It’s safe to say he has more experience than most of us in this area.

Charles is an influential philanthropist focused on developing effective solutions to social problems.

He founded a non-profit organization called Stand Together for just this purpose and its CEO is Brian Hooks.

Brian is also president of the Charles Koch Foundation and Charles Koch Institute.

They have written a book together called BELIEVE IN PEOPLE: BOTTOM-UP SOLUTIONS FOR A TOP-DOWN WORLD, a message of inclusion and empowerment.

They show how every single one of us has a gift we can use to find fulfillment and build a better society.

And they show that by coming together, we can tackle our country’s biggest problems and help every person rise.

Find Charles and Brian at and find their book, Believe In People wherever you get your books.
