If you’ve ever wanted to feel better at work and about your work, then do have the Healing Organization show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with best-selling author and visionary, Michael Gelb. A pioneer in the field of creative thinking, a fit degree black belt in aikido, the author of at least sixteen books, including “Think Like Leonardo Davinci”, and the co-author of one of the most brilliant and needed books today, “The Healing Organization”

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about how we can change the way we work, awaken the conscious of business, and help save the world.

Key Points Discussed:

  • What we can do at work to begin to change the world (03:10)
  • Being more successful by being consistently kind and focusing on the needs of those around us (09:48)
  • Shifting businesses to the notion of stakeholders rather than just shareholders (13:36)
  • How do we as individuals choose which companies to work for to support that which supports us? (19:51)
  • Planned obsolescence and how exploitative it is of customers and the earth (27:50)
  • What we can do when we are in a company that is performing shock experiments on their employees and customers? (34:43)
  • What do we do if we’re in the barrel and can we actually make a difference when we’re feeling we can’t? (41:05)
  • Out of all companies, which one expresses the most positive story or best model for us to understand moving forward? (44:14)
  • Healing ourselves and aligning our daily lives around a higher intention (51:07)
  • The truly human leadership by Bob Chapman at Barry Wehmiller companies (57:20)
  • The power of an idea that is just right for it’s time (1:00:57)
