Conscious Leadership, my new book coauthored with John Mackey and Carter Phipps

I’m excited to announce the publication of my new book, coauthored with John Mackey and Carter Phipps: Conscious Leadership—Elevating Humanity Through Business.

This popular business book (published by Penguin/Portfolio) explores the vision, virtues, and mindset needed for aspiring conscious leaders, providing a roadmap for innovative, value-based leadership in business and society. My coauthor John Mackey is CEO of Whole Foods Market and coauthor of the acclaimed 2013 book: Conscious Capitalism. And my coauthor Carter Phipps is cofounder of the Institute for Cultural Evolution and author of the 2012 book: Evolutionaries.

It is a well-established truth that an organization’s potential is constrained by the capacities of its leaders. One of the best ways to improve an organization is therefore to evolve the personal and professional capacities of those who lead it. This is the mission of Conscious Leadership. The book defines conscious leaders as those who are “driven by service to the organization’s higher purpose, all the people that it touches, and the planet we all share together.” Each chapter includes anecdotes, case studies, profiles of conscious leaders, and innovative techniques for self-development.

Conscious Leadership culminates in an empowering call to action for leaders who can see beyond the bottom line. The book also includes an appendix: “On Cultivating Cultural Intelligence.”
