    Conscious leadership begins with personal transformation.

    Let’s begin with the story of author John Mackey. 

    In the late 2000s, Mackey arrived in Florida to meet with the Whole Foods Market board of directors. They were going to discuss his future as CEO of the company – and it wasn’t good news. 

    According to the board, Mackey’s work over the past few years had been unsatisfactory. 

    For example, Mackey had tried to create an online initiative for Whole Foods – – which aimed to sell everything from healthy food and supplements to books and clothing. Unfortunately, it was a bust. The board had had enough.

    After he left the meeting, Mackey felt panic-stricken. Was he about to lose everything he’d worked for? 

    Mackey might have felt like this was the end for him as a leader. But, in fact, it was just the beginning.

    The key message here is: Conscious leadership begins with personal transformation. 

    Mackey wandered into some of the local Whole Foods stores in Florida – as he quite often did when he was traveling. He saw aisles lined with an abundance of healthy, natural food, and a number of happy employees chatting to customers.

    This brought him to a realization: making people happy and inspiring them to eat nutritious food was exactly what Whole Foods was all about. It was the reason he had cofounded the company all those years ago. 

    In that moment, Mackey reconnected to his purpose – his “why” for wanting to lead a business that was driven by something more than just money.

    When Mackey met with the board again later that afternoon, he did all he could to prove that he was the person to lead Whole Foods into the new millennium. And he just about pulled it off. 

    To cut a long story short, Mackey was able to keep his job – but he knew he couldn’t be the same leader he’d been before. If he was going to guide Whole Foods into a bright future, he would need to grow and evolve as a conscious leader. That meant embarking upon an “intentional journey” of personal development.

    In the next blinks, we’ll look at the steps you can take to become a conscious leader – including what mindset you need to embody and the qualities you need to cultivate. 

    But first, let’s take a look at the role of business in society – and at how capitalism can be a force for good.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
