Charles Koch Explains How His Love of Philosophy Built One of America’s Most Successful Companies

Joe Lonsdale: American Optimist

Charles Koch, Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, is one of the great business minds of our time. He grew a small engineering firm from $21 million in revenue to over 10,000 times the revenue. Yet in both his business and philanthropic work, he is first and foremost a philosopher. Koch explains how thinkers such as Abraham Maslow and Joseph Schumpeter shaped his outlook on the conditions for human flourishing, and why it's important to enable every employee to self-actualize. Rejecting centralized top-down systems, Koch developed Market-Based Management -- a philosophy that enables his companies to constantly reinvent themselves through virtuous cycles of mutual benefit that provide value to both employees and customers.

Lifelong Learning, Reimagined with Ryan Stowers, Charles Koch Foundation's Executive Director


In this episode of Illuminate Higher Education, N2N Services CEO Kiran Kodithala speaks with Ryan Stowers, Charles Koch Foundation's Executive Director.Ryan kicks things off by outlining a core issue in our higher education system, which is that it's severely outdated. As it stands, only one-third of students at four-year institutions believe that they'll graduate with the skills and knowledge to be successful in the workplace. This illustrates an obvious area of opportunity, which can start with collectively changing the way we think and act about the role higher education plays in our lives.For example, we may need to move away from education solely as a function of seat time, credit hours, or degrees. Instead, we need a significant shift towards an individualized approach, honing in on a specific learner's aptitudes, passions, and interests. Ryan suggests that we need to pay a lot more attention to individual learner's voices and preferences, which will mean putting the ownership of what those pathways look like back in the hands of the learner so that they can be presented with a dynamic set of options to adequately receive the continued education they seek.Connect with Ryan Stowers: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ryan-stowers-1832024/Learn more about the Charles Koch Foundation at https://charleskochfoundation.org/This episode is brought to you by N2N’s Illuminate App, The iPaaS for Higher Education.

Charles Koch's Market Based Management - Ep 229

Kyle Keegan Radio Show

When someone begins to study "praxeology," basically why humans act, they begin to understand the forces that created such an economic advancement over the last 200 years.    People, for the first time ever were MOTIVATED to and ENCOURAGED to IMPROVE THE WORLD and BENEFIT FROM THEIR IMPROVEMENTS. The individuals had good ideas. Not just the tyrants.    It would be hypocritical to credit this awakening that good ideas flow best from the bottom up... And not embrace those same values within the walls of our own companies.   Charles Koch has built his entire company on these values and this may be the ember that catches the entire world of business on fire. Not enough people watched as he built an amazing company upon these principles.    Koch Industries is like a capitalist economy within an economy. Interesting stuff and, in my opinion, as game changing to the future of business as capitalism and markets have been to civilization.   Read this book if you haven't already: https://amzn.to/3yTT90b   Want to keep "Killing Bigger?"   Text KKRS to: 713-528-8219   Telegram Community: https://t.me/killbigger   Twitter: https://twitter.com/killbiggerradio   Parler: https://parler.com/#/user/KillBiggerRadio   Check out https://KillBigger.com   The American Precious Metals Exchange at https://apmex.com   Protect your privacy on your phone and computer with https://nordvpn.com/keegan      Chase INK Credit Cards: https://www.referyourchasecard.com/21/IEDS1NQ9H2   Join the discussion at https://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/kaks-kill-bigger-radio-show.95326/    DISCLAIMER!
