Quantum Leadership: New Consciousness in Business

A Stanford University Press book anticipated for a 2019 release

Could changing our consciousness hold the key to prosperity and flourishing? Using extensive field research, the Quantum Leadership Project shows how changing the narrative about ourselves, others, and the world is the most effective way for businesses to turn challenges into opportunities.

Our evidence-based approach complements the financial case for sustainability by emphasizing the ontological roots of business leadership aimed at positive social impact. Central to the exploration are ‘practices of connectedness’ that instill a new consciousness of connectedness in leaders and organizations. We show that it is only through such a transformation in consciousness that businesses can create economic prosperity while contributing to healthy environments and increased human wellbeing. Without it, businesses are condemned to continue today’s strategies that, at best, reduce social harm and their ecological footprint and, at worst, contribute to growing social crises and environmental disaster.

Interviews in over 50 companies provide an intimate first-hand account of a powerful new form of flourishing enterprise, illustrated with vibrant stories and extensive data analysis, to describe a business-led transformation toward a world in which people experience wellbeing, companies prosper, and nature thrives.

量子领导力:商业的新觉悟

将于2019年斯坦福大学出版社出版

是否改变我们的意识才是促进繁荣和兴旺发展的金钥匙?量子领导力团队在广泛的实地调研后发现,帮助企业转危为机的最有效方式是转变我们对自身、对他人、和对世界的叙事(认知)。

相较于用财务表现分析可持续发展意义的惯例,量子领导力用实证研究说明致力于正面社会影响的领导力有其本体论的根源。量子领导力研究的核心是,“合一感练习”会给组织和领导者注入“天人合一”的意识。研究结果显示,只有通过意识上的转型,企业才能同时创造经济繁荣、环境健康、和幸福指数提高。缺乏意识的根本变革的商业,至多能维持现状—努力降低对社会的损害,更坏的情况是继续造成更多的社会危机和环境灾难。

量子领导力团队所进行的50多个深度采访,提供了关于一种强大的新型的繁荣企业的第一手调研资料。量子领导力以充满活力的故事和大量的数据分析,描述了一个以企业行为驱动的转型的世界,是如何给人们带来幸福感、商业兴旺、和自然繁盛。
