Welcome to On Principle, Season 2

​Peering behind the scenes with leaders making tough calls.


How do you recover from a multimillion-dollar mistake while your company is expanding and your technology is ailing? How do you capitalize on unusual sources of inspiration? When is a handshake deal ever good enough? How do you plan strategy during a crisis? These are some of the questions we explore, thanks to the business leaders who share their stories in season two of On Principle. We’ll have eight more episodes that put you inside the C-suite or out on the street as our guests confront these challenges. And, as usual, WashU Olin academics lend their expertise, add context and drive home the takeaways.

  • Paula Crews, senior associate dean of strategy and marketing for WashU Olin Business School
  • Alaina Maciá, CEO of MTM, Inc.
