Enlightened Principals for Business Success
When business is conducted from a high level of consciousness, there is no tension between material and spiritual wealth. We establish our values through our behavior, our dealings with other people and the world. We transcend ourselves as we expand our circle of care and concern to include colleagues, customers and other people.
Of course in order to keep the business game alive, players must strive to earn money and accomplish their mission, but the game is about much more than winning. Material success is not the end in itself it becomes a means to develop and express one’s highest nature. Over a third of Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies” to work for adhere to a principal called “Servant-Leadership.” A Conscious Business promotes the intelligent pursuit of happiness in all their stakeholders, producing sustainable, exceptional performance through community solidarity and individual dignity.
