Self-Disrupt to Redesign the Future of Work

  by SANDJA BRÜGMANN, Originally published in Conscious Company Media. “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R. Buckminster Fuller The future of work encourages whole human beings to move toward their highest soulful potential. This requires a drastic redesign of organizations, how we work, and what we recognize as success. It calls on us to move away from control, manipulation, and fear toward cultures that support and foster personal growth, freedom, autonomy, and blossoming of the individual.

They must navigate resource scarcity, economic polarity, the speed of technological… Read more »

  by Chantell Haines Today’s companies are being tasked with the impossible: How can we make money for our shareholders, pay our employees well, and positively impact the environment and society as a whole?

Companies are being challenged to figure out how to do this. Every single industry needs to redefine how it operates in order… Read more »

Conscious business er det nye sort

Skrevet af Eva Vestrheim. Udgivet af K1.   Conscious Business er det nye sort ”overthere” og det må nødvendigvis inkorporeres i de danske forretningsmodeller, hvis vi vil overleve på et globalt marked. Basalt set handler Corporate Social Responsibility blot om simpelhed, ærlighed, transparens, ydmyghed, og at handle bevidst og ansvarligt. Hvor svært kan det være! Kim Rahbek, medstifter af Sticks’ n’ Sushi og Sandja Brügmann, grundlægger af Refresh Agency undrer sig over vores konforme måde at tænke på. Kan det tænkes at CSR kamoufleres under ord som Conscious Business, almindelige dyder som ordentlighed og respekt?
