On the Western side of the world, we’re taught to have an individualistic mindset — “How can I maximize my happiness?” People in the East are taught to have a collective mindset — “How can we maximize our happiness?” This change in perspective is slight. But, makes all the difference, especially when you are building culture remotely.

Wagepoint CEO, Shrad Rao recently sat down with George Khalife, the host of Let’s Grab Coffee Podcast,  to provide valuable insights on the difference between Western and Eastern philosophy and how it influences business strategy and management style.
