TEDx: The Healing Organization
TEDx: Reimagining Capitalism with Higher Consciousness
Capitalism has been extraordinarily successful over the past two centuries at raising human living standards, life expectancy and life satisfaction. But the old way is not working any more. The world has changed so much and people have evolved so rapidly that we need to bring a higher level of consciousness to the world of business. Conscious Capitalism is an emerging paradigm that realigns business to the emerging realities of our world. In this inspiring presentation, Raj Sisodia, author of Conscious Capitalism, shows how conscious businesses deliver extraordinary financial performance while creating multiple kinds of positive value for all stakeholders: intellectual, physical, ecological, social, cultural, emotional and even spiritual.
Drawing upon his best-selling books, Firms of Endearment and Conscious Capitalism, Raj Sisodia outlines how world-class companies can profit from passion and purpose—becoming endearing and enduring organizations. From Costco to Commerce Bank, Wegman’s to Whole Foods, these firms are generating every form of value that matters, not because it’s “politically correct,” but because it’s the only path toward long-term competitive advantage. No matter what your industry, you’ll learn how your organization can shed the old, narrow, instrumental view of business and implement a more expansive and deeply fulfilling version of what business can and should be.
The definition of leadership is evolving rapidly as we change the way we think about business. Conscious leaders are driven by service to the purpose of the business, and deeply care about the well-being of all the people impacted by it. Conscious leaders possess high levels of emotional intelligence and are spiritually evolved. They are strong individuals with a great capacity for love and care. They possess tremendous moral courage and are able to withstand the constant scrutiny and criticism they face from those who view business in a more traditional and narrow manner. Above all, they view themselves as trustees of the business, seeking to nurture it and safeguard it for future generations, and as stewards of all the lives entrusted to them. In this game-changing talk, Raj Sisodia provides the path towards conscious leadership—and how to activate it at every level of your organization.
We live in a world of extraordinary pain and suffering. Public confidence in major corporations is at an all-time low. Why? Too many businesses exploit their people and harm their communities for short-term profit. If we are not consciously part of the healing, we are probably part of the hurting. But it doesn't have to be this way. Based on his most recent book, The Healing Organization: Awakening the Conscience of Business to Help Save the World, Raj Sisodia makes the case that business can become the primary agent for healing society. This is not about healing businesses; it is about business as healing. Business can take wounded people, broken communities and damaged ecosystems and make them whole again – and businesses that operate in this way will be more successful and profitable over time. Sisodia shares stories and case studies of such businesses and extracts lessons that can put any company on the path to becoming a healing organization.
"What a fabulous talk Raj gave, the content was tailored remarkably for our audience and we’ve been hearing great things about how this has resonated. I think having the speech cascaded down to Mimecasters from the July leadership summit will do wonders for our year ahead, and lead to some very interesting conversations. Please give our many thanks to Raj again for making the time, and for leaning in once again and challenging us with his thought-provoking content. It is such a unique opportunity to hear his ideas which no doubt will help us learn and grow."
