Conscious Business: How to Build Value through Values

Fred Kofman

At a glance:

The book focuses on the importance of integrating mindfulness and values into the workplace. Kofman argues that companies that prioritize the well-being of their employees, customers, and the community will ultimately be more successful in the long run. The book offers practical advice and techniques for creating a conscious business culture, including developing emotional intelligence, fostering open communication, and aligning organizational values with personal values.

A particular helpful chapter is the one on the mentality of victim vs. player: a victim blames whatever happens to everything around them, while a player takes responsibility and creates agency to their desired outcome.

Key takeaways:

- A conscious business is one that operates in a state of active awareness, with the intention of creating value for all stakeholders: customers, employees, shareholders, and the community.

- A conscious leader is someone who is aware of the impact of their actions and decisions on others and who takes responsibility for creating a positive and meaningful work environment.

- A conscious business culture is one that values integrity, transparency, and accountability, and that encourages open communication, learning, and growth.

- Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage our own emotions, as well as those of others.

- Personal responsibility is the key to creating a conscious business. We are each responsible for our own thoughts, feelings, and actions, and for the impact they have on others.

- A conscious business is one that is not only profitable but also purposeful, that not only creates wealth but also contributes to the well-being of society.
