Alana Walker Carpenter is the CEO of Intriciti, a ministry group that works to integrate faith in the business community.
This episode begins with their conversation with how to bring Faith into the workplace. Both Michael and Alana are business managers and entrepreneurs and their discussion begins with bringing care and empathy into the role of an authority figure. Questions of the negative perceptions of wealth as well as how to earn money morally arise — both come to the conclusion that values-driven leadership, like the kind that Intriciti teaches and promotes, is necessary in the modern business world. Michael brings up the balance of faith, family, finance, and friendship and both share their trials in raising children and contemporary family life. Alana slowly turns the interview around on Michael, getting him to open up about his beliefs in both the personal and professional realms.
