John Mackey started a retail and organic food movement when he founded Whole Foods, bringing natural, organic food to the masses and not only changing the market, but breaking the mold. In his new book, Conscious Leadership, Mackey closely explores the vision, virtues and mindset that have informed Mackey’s own leadership journey, providing a roadmap for innovative, value-based leadership—in business and in society. The book is a follow up to groundbreaking bestseller, Conscious Capitalism, which revealed what it takes to lead a purpose-driven, sustainable business.
In this book, Mackey demystifies strategies that have helped Mackey shepherd Whole Foods through four decades of incredible growth and innovation, including its recent sale to Amazon. Mackey challenges business leaders to rethink conventional business wisdom, through anecdotes, case studies, profiles of conscious leaders, and innovative techniques for self-development, culminating in an empowering call to action for entrepreneurs and trailblazers—to step up as leaders who see beyond the bottom line.
At a transformative time for American business, the informed wisdom of John Mackey could not come at a better time. Please join us for a timely conversation.
