Leadership: Companies Practicing “Conscious Capitalism” Perform 10X Better
In executive leadership, our job is to produce financial results and, hopefully, results that exceed our peer group. As humans, though (and, yes, leaders are human), we often struggle with our personal interest in doing something positive – beyond producing financial results – for our team members, customers, the environment, and humankind in general. And most of the time, those altruistic objectives are crowded out by the extreme pressures to make money and build value. Personally, though, I am inspired by the very real possibility that the first objective can be better accomplished by attainment of the second. Do right and do well. In fact, the statistics show it’s more than a possibility; it’s a fact. Check out this and Conscious Capitalism, the new book by John Mackey, Founder and Co-CEO of Whole Foods.
