#163 Ari Weinzweig, CEO of Zingerman's Community of Businesses, on Visioning and the Myth of the One Thing

Joining me on the show for the second time is Ari Weinzweig, the co-founder of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses.

You have probably heard me reference Zingerman’s on the show about how they are true trailblazers when it comes to building a business that make sound financial results as well as a positive impact on people, society and the planet.

Ari has written a range of books and pamphlets including ‘The Guide to Good Leading Series – Part 1, 2, 3 & 4’ – and today we will be diving into the book and their experiences in how they continue to build such a great company.  

This conversation will give you great guidance on how to build a great business for the long-term. We also discuss the communities Ari has been formed by, his freewriting process for visioning, and why we need to stop chasing after ‘The One Thing’. 

#157 Thom Elliot, Co-Founder of Pizza Pilgrims, on Business Momentum

I’m super excited to speak with Thom Elliot co-founder of Pizza Pilgrims, who makes authentic Neapolitan pizzas in Central London and beyond. Pizza Pilgrims started life in 2011, after Thom and James drove a three-wheeled Piaggio Ape back from Italy on a 6 week ‘Pizza Pilgrimage’ of discovery to learn everything there is to know about pizza.

I love their latest venture, the Pizza Academy, which is designed to inspire young people to choose hospitality as a career and be a center of excellence for all things pizza.

Thom gives us a deep dive into their purpose, leadership philosophy, culture, why pizza and happiness and how they are very connected, their approach to managing and developing people, their philosophy around growth, what they are focusing on as a business right now, the future of hospitality and some many other slices of wisdom.
