Most companies still operate as if they control their customers. But, in today’s market, it’s really the other way around. In fact, there’s a new boss in town, named Customer CEO. This course is based on Chuck Wall’s book, Customer CEO: How to Profit from the Power of Your Customers.

Everyone in a business career needs to consider the idea of purpose. It doesn’t matter whether you are a CEO, a middle manager, or a frontline employee. You are a leader in your own way because you have influence for good or bad. This influence extends to both your coworkers and your customers. The Power of Purpose is about the values you share with your customers and each other in the workplace.

A company’s first order of business must be to make a profit. In fact, it should strive to maximize its profit. Profit provides the necessary capital to innovate, retain the best talent, and sustain the enterprise.
