Prevailing wisdom tells business leaders to focus primarily on profit, which works in the short term…until your company inevitably encounters a crisis. Then the one thing that can save your company is the very thing walking out the door.
In her new book, The Conscious Workplace: Fortify Your Culture to Thrive in Any Crisis, Shaara Roman presents a global citizen perspective on the importance of workplace culture, and how it leads to a profitable business. Explore high-profile examples from companies like yogurt maker Chobani, mattress company Leesa, and King Arthur Baking Company, which have all harnessed a strong culture to create a truly resilient business. No matter the size of your organization, The Conscious Workplace can show you how to get the most out of your greatest resources—people, purpose, and values—by investing in them. And when you focus on what really matters, as these case studies show, you make good on your commitment to ESG and increase profits.
With a strong, passionate attitude towards bringing people together, Shaara is teaching business leaders to focus on one employee at a time by helping them align their personal goals with their professional development within their organization. Her primary goal is to deliver hands-on, sustainable steps giving leaders of every industry the chance to build intentional cultures of their own. The Conscious Workplace is the ultimate guide to help business professionals develop workable, immediate skills to thrive in any crisis.
