Creating a values compass with Dr. Mandeep Rai

In this episode of How to be the Difference, we sat down with Dr. Mandeep Rai, the international best-selling author of The Values Compass: What 101 Countries Teach Us About Purpose, Life, and Leadership.

Mandeep has an impressive track record having traveled to more than 150 countries, completed a PhD in Global Values, built a career at JP Morgan, and reported as a journalist for BBC World Service and Reuters, among other publications.

Mandeep does a deep dive on how she became a global authority on values and how creating your own personal values compass can help you navigate today’s world. She talks about building relationships with inspirational people like the Dalai Lama and the values and lessons she’s taken away from being exposed to different cultures.
