Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal best seller

From Whole Foods CEO John Mackey and his coauthors, a follow-up to groundbreaking best seller Conscious Capitalism — revealing what it takes to lead a purpose-driven, sustainable business.

John Mackey started a movement when he founded Whole Foods, bringing natural, organic food to the masses and not only changing the market, but breaking the mold. Now, for the first time, Conscious Leadership closely explores the vision, virtues, and mindset that have informed Mackey’s own leadership journey, providing a roadmap for innovative, value-based leadership — in business and in society.  

Conscious Leadership demystifies strategies that have helped Mackey shepherd Whole Foods through four decades of incredible growth and innovation, including its recent sale to Amazon. Each chapter will challenge you to rethink conventional business wisdom through anecdotes, case studies, profiles of conscious leaders, and innovative techniques for self-development, culminating in an empowering call to action for entrepreneurs and trailblazers — to step up as leaders who see beyond the bottom line.

Critic Reviews

"... a commendable guide... half business case study, half workbook, framing its advice component with Whole Foods history.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Do you want to know how to grow spiritually as a leader? This is the book for you... a thought provoking and surprisingly reflective account...” (Financial Times)

“In a changing world, businesses that hope to thrive will need leadership to take them there. Conscious Leadership defines a path forward for all of us looking to lead the way.” (Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks)

Great sections and meh sections

I found myself dozing off a lot while listening to this one. It was more broad than I hoped, but I got several really good insights from it so I'd still recommend it.

outstanding insights by a proven leader

I was drawn to this book after the Freakonomics podcast with the Whole Foods CEO and author introduced me to it and to the CEO. I was struck by his genuine approach and his vegan capitalist Classical Liberal spin. Great book, recommend to leaders who want to improve by understanding themselves and those around them better.

Go Beyond the Obvious

Really enjoyed the book and the insightful look into longevity in leadership. It lays the foundation for true leadership by encouraging those interested in making a real difference to go beyond the basic thoughts on leading. Lead by example, it’s what you do and not what you say you will do. Seek your own information and draw your own conclusions, which may be the most important lesson because we currently live in a world of meaningless “noise makers” and blind emotional decision making based on one’s chosen side of an argument or issue. Finally, seeking scenarios and solutions where everyone involved wins is vital to continued success of an organization. Conscious Leadership is a must-read for anyone who seriously wants to unlock their true leadership potential.

This is a good way to expand your business mindset

I honestly enjoyed the overall context of the but and think it is a great read for people who want to do business but keep their integrity. There were good suggestions and general conversation starts to help you function as an individual but also run a company.

Good for self improvement

Voice was low and a bit tiring, content mostly very good but a bit wordy and I found the sentences sometimes too long. Great points for thought and action.
