“The uniting of our own personal awareness, really finding that thread, allows us to find where we are disconnected from — our own leadership, our goals, our boundaries,” Haiis said. “And if we’re not connected internally to our own GPS, how can we possibly bring [leadership] into the workspace?”
Laqueur told Bold Business how businesses can approach their day-to-day in a more conscious manner.
“Having a higher purpose, that’s the first thing, and learning how to communicate that [and] having a multi-stakeholder perspective. It’s not just about investors anymore, it’s about the impact that the business has on all stakeholders.” Laqueur said.
Laqueur also shared why companies should be more concerned about connecting employees with a conscious mindset and good business partnership.
“Ultimately, companies that are conscious — and data shows this — are highly more profitable, they have greater engagement with their employees, it’s easier to recruit people [that] want to stay and work within these organizations. They’re healthier, they’re happier and they are higher functioning organizations.”
He continued, “There are a lot of tools and ways for them to go about doing that. Whether that’s improving their communication, a lot of organizations today like to rely on mission values as a typical framework. A lot of the younger workforce today ignores that.”
