As a part of the “Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast” series of No Turning Back, Stan and Chris were eager to speak with Jake Wood, the founder and CEO of Groundswell.
Jake's career began in the military – he was a Marine and upon leaving the military founded Team Rubicon, an organization that position veterans to help in disaster response. Most recently, Jake founded Groundswell, a nonprofit that aims to change charitable giving.
Stan spoke to Jake about intentional decision making, how Jake successfully grew and led Team Rubicon and had tremendous impact, how he intentionally made career pivots, and his current work at Groundswell and its efforts to disrupt corporate giving.
Overall, Stan spoke to Jake about how he thinks about evolving while remaining focused and competitive as the world changes around him. Jake is a fascinating thought leader and guest. We hope our discussion here is thought provoking and enjoyable.
