When we talk amongst our team about the conscious business movement, we sometimes compare it to the state of computers and information technology circa, say, 1998. It’s a giant wave that’s coming, and with a host of early adopters already riding it, experimenting all the way. But many people whose lives it could hugely affect don’t know much about it, and those early adopters still lack key centralized resources to accelerate the flow of information and coordinate with each other. Or, to paraphrase author William Gibson: the future of business is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed.
Thus it was with two goals in mind that we created a special industry guide for Issue 15, September / October 2017:
- Help orient the curious
- Help empower the invested
Whether you’re considering a transition to a more conscious business mindset or are already a committed practitioner, inside the guide you’ll find plenty of practical tools and inspiration for creating a thriving workplace culture, growing your leadership, creating wins for all stakeholders, and more.
We’ll be posting most of the articles here within the coming weeks; in the meantime, you can also subscribe to the print product (not too late to get this issue!), buy a copy of this print issue online or in a local store, or get instant digital access via the Zinio newsstand.
Read on for more about what’s inside. And thanks for your interest in joining the early adopters!
