What the Hobby Lobby Ruling Means for America

Corporations, it turns out, really are people. And that could be very bad news for the rest of us.
Peace Overtures's insight:

The danger is not only that corporations can act at the expense of society, but also that the people who control them can act at the expense of their own shareholders, employees and customers.

 

Is this pattern changing the fundamentals of our democracy? What do you think?

Peace Overtures's insight:

Is holacracy—or the “flat lattice”—the new business structure of the future?. At its heart lies the notion that no one in a group can be more important than the whole, and each is equally invested in the success of the holacratic organization. Would this allow a more balanced approach to decision making in business?

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite | Returning Balance To Business | Scoop.it

Focus, clarity, creativity, compassion, and courage. These are the qualities of the mindful leaders. They are also the qualities that give today’s best leaders the resilience to cope with the many challenges coming their way and the resolve to sustain long-term success.


The real point of leverage — which though it sounds simple, many executives never discover — is the ability to think clearly and to focus on the most important opportunities.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Peace Overtures's insight:

The important thing is to have a regular introspective practice that takes you away from your daily routines and enables you to reflect on your work and your life — to really focus on what is truly important to you. By doing so, you will not only be more successful, you will be happier and more fulfilled in the long run.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 10, 2014 2:22 PM

It concerns me when we see mindfulness as a "real point of leverage". That diminishes the meditative purpose underlying it and shifts it to a calculative way of thinking. Don't we already have enough of the latter and not enough of the former?

Chris Shern's curator insight, March 12, 2014 6:08 AM

Things are not changing as fast as the world around and within business. There are still far too many managers in a world with an increasing need for mindful leaders.

Peace Overtures's insight:

There's a new set point occurring in business. These thoughtful leaders describe the future and where we're headed. It's time for business to return to balance so it brings more peace of mind. As French humanitarian Matthieu Ricard said,  “What’s the point if you don’t have a sense of the quality of the moment passing by?”Ricard told Bloomberg News. “It doesn’t have to be blissing out under a mango tree, but some kind of joy.”
