Conscious Leadership: Elevating Humanity Through Business.
From Whole Foods cofounder John Mackey, the much-anticipated followup to groundbreaking bestseller Conscious Capitalism—focusing on what it takes to be a values-driven leader.
Forty years ago Whole Foods CEO John Mackey started a movement by bringing natural, organic food to the masses. Then he brought those values to the business world with Conscious Capitalism, a Wall Street Journal bestseller that taught the power of “the heroic spirit of business.” Now, drawing from his own experience, Mackey wants to inspire entrepreneurs and trailblazers to step up—to grow as conscious leaders who see beyond the bottom line.
Conscious Leadership shows how Mackey shepherded Whole Foods through four decades of incredible growth and innovation, including its recent sale to Amazon, without losing sight of his core values. Weaving in case studies and anecdotes from other conscious organizations with time-tested insights, it is a motivating call to action for both current and aspiring leaders, challenging readers not to rest on their innate skills but step up to a much higher level of integrity and responsibility. Offering innovative self-development techniques and principles for an entirely new paradigm, Conscious Leadership not only changes the narrative about business, but aims to evolve the behavior of business—through tens of thousands more conscious leaders.
