4.0 étoiles sur 5 Less "how to build an enterprise" and more "how to understand your feelings in business" 21 octobre 2009
Par Jason Stokes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I picked up and put down this book several times. I came in with an expectation that this would contain stories of how people have made a difference while working, a path to help understand how to make a positive difference, and a blueprint for going out and doing it. It's not that book. I can't fault it for it is, but it's not a practical guide to building sustainable business.

It is, however, a practical guide to look inside yourself, understand how the business is affecting you, and work from there. There are many discussions on meditative techniques, examining the fire inside, and so on - that would probably be very helpful to someone discerning if they really are in their true calling, or just working for the sake of working. On that note, it succeeds.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The many relaxation exercises will turn off decision makers looking for answers 28 août 2009
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This book starts very strong yet fades fast so that a large percentage of the intended audience would probably cease reading. The premise of the title deals with businesses adopting the principles of social and community conscience, making money by making and doing good. At the time of writing, the author was managing an organization called FLOW, which is dedicated to "liberating the entrepeneurial spirit for good." An admirable goal that can lead to significant profit in an environment where the public is weary of stories about corporate greed, malfeasance and general lack of concern regarding the consequences of organizational policies. In this environment, companies that demonstrate a true feeling for their place in their community can outperform those that do not.
Unfortunately, many readers interested in how to adopt this mindset will be turned off by the many relaxation exercises included in the book. Everyone knows that the ability to relax and reduce your stress level is important, however it is hard to see how that relates to the adoption of a new corporate culture. To many decision makers willing to take the risk of changing their business tactics, these sections will appear too "touchy-feely" to be of use. To take a calculated risk one must first be able to calculate and that mechanism is not provided here.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Unfortunately, it was not the book I was hoping for.. 24 novembre 2009
Par The Gerondakises - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I was immediately drawn to this book because I have always been interested in opening a vegan, earth-friendly bakery. I was hoping this book would be my guidebook to putting that plan into action, but unfortunately it did not deliver on that front. This is not a how-to on creating a successful business that is green, sustainable, and socially responsible while also being self-fulfilling.

If you already run a business and would like to search your soul to determine if you are on the right path; or if you are hoping to understand the feelings behind your business model, I think that this book will help you. There are some exercises in this book that can help you to determine how your business affects the world around you and the people in your community. Jeff Klein is obviously a very experienced businessman in that aspect. He has hundreds of anecdotes that serve as great insights into what some companies in the marketplace today are already doing to better themselves and the world around them.

While this book didn't serve my specific purpose, and I had hoped to see some arguments on why businesses should take up green and socially responsible practices, I still think it has it's place. It would be useful in determining the path you would like to take within your own company to do good in the world around you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Master Principles of Business Consciousness 23 octobre 2009
Par Cynthia Sue Larson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
WORKING FOR GOOD provides intuition and mindfulness exercises readers can practice to gain a better sense of who they and how they can do the most good in the world. Author Jeff Klein shares insights drawn from his role as executive director of a nonprofit called FLOW, encouraging us to build, support and work for conscious businesses that operate based on three core principles: having a deeper purpose, optimize interdependencies, and providing leadership through being in service. Klein provides some examples of how to work in conscious businesses in a way that is perfectly suited for anyone interested in making money while simultaneously operating from a place of honesty, compassion, and love. Few money-making ideas are presented in WORKING FOR GOOD, as this is primarily more of a self-help book than a business book in the traditional sense.

WORKING FOR GOOD provides a tantalyzing glimpse behind the scenes of conscious businesses that are becoming increasingly visible and admired, at a time when many self-serving businesses are suffering from tarnished images when the public becomes aware of their selfish short-sightedness. Klein takes readers through some of the most important practical skills needed for working in conscious businesses, which require self-reflection and a commitment to ongoing growth to achieve. WORKING FOR GOOD is not recommended for readers who are not interested in self actualization, as they may not readily recognize the intrinsic value of learning skills such as understanding emotions, or reflective listening.

I recommend WORKING FOR GOOD for anyone interested in helping to transform their business into a more conscious business, who is open to becoming more conscious in the process.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Positive Change in the Workplace 29 août 2009
Par Rebecca of Amazon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
"Countless entrepreneurs in diverse industries are staking out new paths to creating conscious companies in service to the greater good." ~ pg. 15

Jeff Klein is one of the many voices that has sprung up from the Conscious Business community. He provides simple strategies you can implement to work for the common good. This book begins with stories of company owners who are making a difference in the world and then progresses into descriptions of how the reader can make the same type of changes in their company. He focuses on awareness, embodiment, connection, collaboration, and integration.

Throughout "Working for Good" there are interesting exercises reminiscent of some breathing exercises you may have experienced in yoga. These help you to focus on aspects of business that are essential to your success. I especially enjoyed the exercise on deep listening and tried it out on a friend. It really enhanced our conversation. I also started practicing the "reflective listening" and it made me more aware of the needs of the person I was talking to. If you think businesses only operate for profit this book may produce some interesting perspectives.

If you want to make a difference in the world then this book will interest you. I can also recommend Conscious Business: How to Build Value Through Values.
