The Ethical Business Building the Future organization, otherwise known as EBBF, is a not-for-profit that aims to promote moral and spiritual wisdom and principles found in the teachings of the Baha’i Faith and the great religious traditions of the world, such as the principles of justice, respect, trustworthiness, integrity and unity.
#discoveringhow is EBBF’s podcast series where you can hear personal experiences and insights from ebbf members — each episode offers you stepping stones, fresh ideas, and the personal learnings of people who believe that ethical business can and should build the future.
In episode 2 of EBBF’s #discoveringhow podcast we hear from Marc Rivers on how he found himself wanting to use his position as CFO at one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies to use spiritual values important to him in a way that would give meaning to his global team of financial controllers. Elsie Maio shares how the function of spiritual values in companies can transform purpose, relationships and results. Listen to how Marc Rivers and Elsie Maio work with the power of truth in finance, branding, writing, consulting and leadership.
We read Jenna Nicholas and Daryn Dodson’s insights into how spirituality is affecting and will influence in the near future the area of finance.

Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
These business professionals truly add value to their companies by focusing on a shared noble purpose. These inspiring spiritual success stories call to mind one of my favorite quotes from ‘Abdu’l Bahá: “The supreme need of humanity is cooperation and reciprocity. The stronger the ties of fellowship and solidarity amongst men, the greater will be the power of constructiveness and accomplishment in all the planes of human activity.” (from a talk He gave in Denver, Colorado in Sept 1912, published in The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 338)
