The Awakened Company is a model for creating a positive ripple in the world.
A new model of business that serves people is needed, anawakened one where people are working on themselves, their relationships, their teams, the organization and their community for a noble purpose.
On November 27th, Indigo Downtown Calgary hosted a pop up event with author Catherine Bell and contributors to The Awakened Company, CEO of Matrix Environmental Solutions Rob Pockar, Founder of BluEarth Renewables, Kent Brown, and facilitated by Melissa Pockar of MoreSo.
We discussed the following themes:
- independence and interdependence
Catherine laid out a framework, noting the importance of environment and context, which are holding all of us, and that we are truly having an interdependent experience. Profit is not a good enough motive for businesses to survive, let alone thrive. We need to focus on the more mecurial aspects of culture in organizations, such as engagement, values and mindset to name a few.
In our next series of blogs, we will focus on learnings from our pop up event from Rob Pockar and Kent Brown, and how The Awakened Company has impacted their organizations. These blogs will include videos and photos from the event on 1. Awakened Leadership as an entrepreneur and 2. Awakened Leadership in a large organizations.
