“Business is community, and how we relate to whatever comes our way and how thoughtful and principled we are,” says Dov Seidman, founder of The HOW Institute for Society. In this week’s business video roundup, he discusses what it means to be a moral leader, exploring various facets of the topic, and even dives into why humanity in leadership will become more sought after (by employees, customers, and stakeholders) as A.I. becomes more prevalent. Also on deck: Gary Vaynerchuk on why businesses need to focus on brand, Oren Cass on the current state of capitalism in the U.S., and Devin Eichler of Crafty Cow on building a personal brand for business. Plus, a new episode of Fix My Pitch offers up sage pitch advice from experts.

Harvard Business Review’s Adi Ignatius speaks with Dov Seidman (author of How: Why How We Do Anything Means Everything) about what it means to be a moral leader. Seidman suggests that the days of business leaders avoiding prominent social or political issues is over. “I think the business of business is society,” he says. Customers, employees, and stakeholders expect business leaders to have a take on things, leading the way for what they believe is right. It’s a fascinating discussion that touches on leadership principles, the importance of reflection, and the aspects of humanity that will become more valuable as A.I. grows.
