Kip Tindell (CEO / The Container Store)
Tindell is actually close friends with Mackey, who is the co-author of this book and co-CEO of Whole Foods Market. According to Tindell, both men believe in conscious capitalism. They say that when everyone wins, the business is most profitable and there should be no losses.
Virginia LeBlanc (Founder / Defining Paths)
I guess I would choose Conscious Capitalism by John Mackey and Raj Sisodia for the brilliant, reachable, utopian view of free-enterprise capitalism with a mind toward higher purpose and humanistic virtues in business.
In this book, Whole Foods Market cofounder John Mackey and professor and Conscious Capitalism, Inc. cofounder Raj Sisodia argue for the inherent good of both business and capitalism. Featuring some of today’s best-known companies, they illustrate how these two forces can—and do—work most powerfully to create value for all stakeholders: including customers, employees, suppliers, investors, society, and the environment. These “Conscious Capitalism” companies include Whole Foods Market, Southwest Airlines, Costco, Google, Patagonia, The Container Store, UPS, and dozens of others.
We know them; we buy their products or use their services. Now it’s time to better understand how these organizations use four specific tenets—higher purpose, stakeholder integration, conscious leadership, and conscious culture and management—to build strong businesses and help advance capitalism further toward realizing its highest potential. As leaders of the Conscious Capitalism movement, Mackey and Sisodia argue that aspiring leaders and business builders need to continue on this path of transformation—for the good of both business and society as a whole.
At once a bold defense and reimagining of capitalism and a blueprint for a new system for doing business grounded in a more evolved ethical consciousness, this book provides a new lens for individuals and companies looking to build a more cooperative, humane, and positive future.
