Welcome to On Principle, Season 1

​Going behind the scenes as leaders make pivotal decisions.

Summary

How do you put a price tag on a hall-of-fame ballplayer? How do you decide to throw away one career dream for another one? How do you survive an existential crisis in your business? The debut season of On Principle puts you behind the scenes for these decisions and more. We interview leaders of startups and C-suite executives of major corporations. We talk to the president of baseball operations for the St. Louis Cardinals and an award-winning chef. Then, for each episode, we talk to academics and scholars who can put the decision-making lessons into context and help drive home the takeaways.
