Whole Foods Market cofounder John Mackey and professor and Conscious Capitalism, Inc. cofounder Raj Sisodia argue that both business and capitalism are inherently good, and they use some of today's best-known and most successful companies to illustrate their point. From Southwest Airlines, UPS, and Tata to Costco, Panera, Google, the Container Store, and Amazon, today's organizations are creating value for all stakeholdersincluding customers, employees, suppliers, investors, society, and the environment.
Read this book and you ll better understand how four specific tenets"higher purpose," "stakeholder integration," "conscious leadership," and "conscious culture and management"can help build strong businesses, move capitalism closer to its highest potential, and foster a more positive environment for all of us.
