It’s Time To Create Business Consciously
Are you aware of the impact that the actions and habits of your business have on your company as well as your environment? Unless you are paying attention and are wide awake you might not be running your business consciously. Are you up to the challenge of being a conscious leader who is ready to run you
r business in a more authentic, transparent way? My trademarked term and my company name and my brand are Heart-repreneur® which has a lot to do with conducting business with integrity and full communication.
As conscious business owners, Heart-repreneurs are authentic and come from serving others. They work with their prospects, client family members, past client family members, vendors, employees, and others to be in service of and for them. They are leaders in their community. They also invest in learning and growing. Most of them have a coach, consult, mentor or guide to help them create a more successful and social caring company.
Conscious Business: How To Build Value Through Values
As a conscious leader, you will build value for your prospective client family members, client family members and vendors and employees. The best way to build value is by having your own values that include honesty, integrity, transparency, and authenticity. I build conscious Heart-repreneur® leaders by first helping them see their areas that need improvement and taking an honest look at what they must shift to become a better leader. I help them become more self-aware of what their best skills, talents, strengths, and abilities are and also to become clear on what is not quite right yet.
An organization that has a conscious leader who is self-aware and knows their core values, will create a more conscious organization that learns fast and moves with the marketplace.
As you look at your own state of consciousness, it might be interesting to know the conscious capitalism definition. Whole Foods’ John Mackey and his research partner Raj Sisodia, provided their definition. I find most people who ask, “What is conscious capitalism?” use their definition which is ‘businesses that serve the interests of all major stakeholders—customers, employees, investors, communities, suppliers, and the environment’.
If this topic interests you, and I hope it does, I recommend you read Conscious Business: How to Build Value Through Values by Fred Kofman. This book won the 2009 Nautilus Gold Award and will help you really understand that your organizational greatness lies within consciousness. The author helps you get clear on your passion and why expressing your essential values through your work is a priority.
One of my best selling books, Work Yourself Happy will help you determine your values.
Also, I suggest you read the Heart-repreneur® Code of Values as a sample of how a company does business consciously.
