    Well written and generally interesting and insightful. Though I will say, very little of what is present is original. Nonetheless, if one hasn't read a lot of leadership books, Conscious Leadership does a good job connecting many modern (and post-modern) ideas about leadership. I enjoyed the bits on the need for continuous learning, for taking care of one's mental and physical health (through such things as meditation and getting enough rest,) and the emphasis on staying humble.

Some of the talk of leading with love seemed a bit fluffy, but, relevant to modern ethos if we are to be honest about current stakeholder theory and corporate social responsibility dialogue.

    If ever we needed an example of how to build a company and team with vision, intention and commitment, this is it. As Mackey shares about his experiences at Wholefoods, I can't help but to review the many lessons that was brought; integrity, win-win-win, long term planning, constantly evolving the team and continuous learning & growing.

As Mackey shares about his experiences at Wholefoods, I can't help but to review the many lessons that was brought; integrity, win-win-win, long term planning, constantly evolving the team and continuous learning & growing. There are there are 2 key highlights about purpose in work that I highlighted for myself; "purpose is not born, but a lifelong practice" and "purpose without pragmatism is impotent. Pragmatism without purpose is aimless". To me, these gave me light and encouragement for while I had evolved past previous thoughts, I do get stuck about purpose in work. I changed my mindset recently about first identify what is my true role in the industry. Am I just another distributor? Or am I a bridge that brings critical information, feedback and training to both side of the chain and beyond? That identification is the purpose, and now is how to transform self and the company. Which links to the second highlight of which reminds self about being practice while carry a vision. The idealistic view is great, yet knowing it's a combination of vision, resources, commitment and being grounded as well. There are many other different parts, in which I surely can refer back should I feel stuck in certain areas, to refer and reflect before making a choice for self.

    Ultimately, becoming a conscious leader involves embarking on a journey of lifelong learning and growth. Not only do you have to commit to finding your purpose, but you also have to live out that purpose through every aspect of your business. This means focusing on creating value for all stakeholders involved: yourself, your customers, your team, and the wider world too. Moreover, it's all fine and dandy being a conscious leader who works tirelessly toward their purpose. But you are no use to an Ultimately, becoming a conscious leader involves embarking on a journey of lifelong learning and growth.

Moreover, it's all fine and dandy being a conscious leader who works tirelessly toward their purpose. But you are no use to anyone if you are burned-out. So if you're feeling tired and unenthused, take a break! Leave your phone at home, and go and spend time in nature. Your mind, your body, and your business will thank you for it.

    Trite. Reads like a Cosmo article for business. "all you need is love". Better just to listen to John Lennon and skip the middleman. I heard a podcast with the founder of whole foods about this book as he is ostensibly the author. It sounded interesting, so i hope that it was the co-authors who ruined this book.

    Decent stories. A bit scattered. I was hoping for more of a case study of Whole Foods

    Big fan of servant leadership. We need more books on being a servant leader. Liked the summaries of key topics that popped up throughout the book.

    Conscious leadership begins with personal transformation. You need to understand the "why?" of what you are doing in order to have a clear purpose, which help drive you and your team forward. Profits and purpose aren't mutually exclusive, you can do good in the world while maximizing profits. Also, it doesn't have to be a win-lose transaction when working in business. It can be a win-win situation by finding mutual benefits. Purpose is a life long practice that you continuely need to assess. Con Conscious leadership begins with personal transformation.

It can be a win-win situation by finding mutual benefits. Purpose is a life long practice that you continuely need to assess. Conscious leaders always have integrity, they live what they say they will do. Honesty, authenticity, honor, and trustworthiness are critical for integrity. Business need to invest in long term value creation instead of short term profits. Creating a conscious work culture requires creating a thriving environment that empowers people to grow their careers. This requires creating an environment of safety and trust.

    I enjoyed the sections on Amazon internal culture. However, this book lacked structure and was composed of disconnected ideas and practices.
