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) Additional Resources: The Healing Organization By Michael Gelb The Wealth of Nations By Adam Smith The Theory of Moral Sentiments By Adam Smith www.MichaelGelb.com www.HealingOrganizations.com …….

Steve Maraboli is joined by author Michael Gelb for an informative and empowering conversation about the power of your brain. Michael's book is "Brain Power". About the book: In the last 30 years the scientific evidence supporting the notion that your mind can improve through the years has become overwhelming. Clearly, the question is no longer whether your mind can improve with age, but rather how you can optimize your mental powers as you get older. This book presents practical, evidence-based information to help you answer this question.
