John Mackey, CEO of the high-end grocer Whole Foods, and Raj Sisodia (marketing, Bentley U.) make the case for a vision of progressive capitalism. They argue that capitalism is misunderstood to be about greed, but they are also adamant that there is no progress without profits. This is no excuse for neglecting the needs of a business's various stakeholders, which they define broadly as including owners, employees, suppliers, investors, consumers, the environment, and society. The book is organized into four sections that define the corporation's need for a higher purpose, how to integrate stakeholder interests, the qualities of conscious leadership, and how conscious culture leads to conscious management. Three appendices outline "the business case for conscious capitalism," related ideas, and misconceptions about conscious capitalism. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

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.
