| Duration: 36:38
Do you have your own social legacy? Would you like to unlock the power to lead a more intentional life? Today we are talking about purpose. Whether it’s personally or professionally we are all looking for it. Why are we here? How can we make an impact? How can my business make an impact? If these are questions you are struggling with you are going to want to listen to our conversation with the incredible Emily Chang, Global CEO, Ted X speaker and author of the bestselling book, The Spare Room.
Emily is a seasoned executive who has worked with some of the world’s most renowned companies like Procter & Gamble, Apple and Starbucks. Over the last twenty-two years, her job has brought her and her family to eight different homes across the U.S. and China. Everywhere she has lived, life has served up young people who have been abused, neglected or marginalized, to find sanctuary in her spare room. In The Spare Room she shares her deeply personal accounts and heart-wrenching stories of an emotionally abused child bride, a dying baby boy born with hydrocephalus, and the abused daughter of a local prostitute.
With the sixteen young people she and her family have cared for, Emily has found that living her Social Legacy has not only deeply enriched her home life, it has also enabled her to become a more authentic and relatable leader in the workplace. Each time she opened the door to her spare room, Emily found herself in a front row seat, witnessing on of life’s incredible stories unfold before her. Integrating work and life, she introduces her spare room kids to colleagues and encourages her team members to invest in their own Social Legacies.
