An entrepreneur is someone who pursues a productive idea. That of John Mundell, of Indianapolis
(USA), is quite original. The enterprise of this civil engineer, where19 collaborators work, adheres to the project of the Economy of Communion (EoC).
There are around a thousand companies in the world that adhere to this evangelical way of working in the economic field, with a strong presence in Europe and with a notable growth in the regions of Latin America and Africa.
The simple but winning idea launched by Mundell is called “The Company Cube” (Dice for the companies). This is a nice instrument that helps to live in a practical way the life style precisely of the Economy of Communion.
The Company Cube, is a practical way of remembering the values that create a work environment grounded in mutual respect, concern, and shared responsibility.
Not only this, it also aims high, and proposes itself as a daily “modus operandi” to bring about social change through decisions made centered on the person.
How does it work? “Take the Cube and… throw it – John Mundell explains. Read the side that faces up and try to live it in your place of work. At the end of the day think about how your way of acting changed and share your experience: Roll it, Read it, Live it, Share it. You will experience surprising results!”.
But what is written on the faces of the dice? Build (relationships everyday!), Support (with actions, not just words!), Share (expertise, time, yourself!), Value (every person,every idea!), First (to help others!), Competitors (can be friends too!).
Regarding “Competitors”, a colleague shares: “When I found out my competitor had won a project we both had written proposals for, I called to congratulate her. She was surprised to hear from me. She shared her approach and it gave me an idea for our next project.”
In August of 2013, during an international congress of th EoC held in Mexico City, entitled “The person and comunione, towards a refoundation of the Economy”, John Mundell launched the Spanish version of “The Company Cube”: “El dado empresarial”.
