Product description

Synopsis

More and more business leaders are catching on to an often-overlooked fact: consciousness is our basic faculty for survival and success. Without it, we forget what's important to us and lose sight of the steps we might take to reach those goals. Conscious Business, explains Fred Kofman, means shining this awareness on every area of your work: in recognizing the needs of others and expressing your own, in seeing the hidden emotional obstacles that may be holding your team back, in making good decisions under pressure and even in delving into such "spiritual" questions as "Who am I?" and "What is my real purpose here?" With "Conscious Business", you hold the definitive resource for maximizing profit and potential in the workplace and beyond.

About the Author

His clients include leaders such as Microsoft, Shell, Yahoo! and General Motors.

Fred holds a Ph.D in economics from the University of California at Berkeley, where he was distinguished as outstanding instructor. He worked as an assistant professor of Management Accounting and Control Systems at MIT's Sloan School of Management, where he received the "Teacher of the Year" award in 1992. At MIT, he was also a senior researcher at the Organizational Learning Center, where he worked with Peter Senge.

Beyond his work, Fred enjoys traveling and outdoor activities, having run nine marathons, climbed Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro and Mt. Kenya, heli-skied in the Bugaboos and the Himalayas, scuba-dived in the Caribbean, and trekked for several weeks in Nepal and Thailand. Fred lives with his wife and six children in Boulder, Colorado.
