9780070580664: Reclaiming Higher Ground: Building Organizations That Inspire the Soul

A thought-provoking combination of management know-how and inspirational guidance on creating a more humane and productive work environment from a popular speaker and business consultant. Secretan, an expert on work and work environments, says we've hit the wall with current management theory, which relentlessly focuses on the pursuit of growth. Trapped in a cycle of "doing more of the same, only faster, " more than 80% of the workforce admits they dislike their work-and employees know first-hand that the screws of corporate psychosis, disfunctionality, stress, and exhaustion can only be tightened so far. Now in paperback, this enlightening book will help business people at every level combat corporate stress so that the primary goal of business-to be profitable and capture market share-can be accomplished without sacrificing everything else in its path. Secretan deliberately asks more questions than he answers, as he guides us towards re-discovering our souls. He offers practical advice and solutions to help readers "reclaim their higher ground, " and create a more satisfying and complete personal and professional life. The purpose? To make work part of our spiritual practice. An that's good for the heart, the mind, and the bottom line.

From the Back Cover:

Businesses today are precariously poised at a moment of great danger and great hope. Reclaiming Higher Ground is a book about hope.

"Reclaiming Higher Ground is a must read. There is nothing more important today than creating organizations that inspire the soul. We have to get back in touch with who we are."­­Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One-Minute Manager

"Secretan draws tasty ingredients from the disciplines of physics, philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, economics, demographics, drama, literature, and management theory, to cook a tasty soul bouillabaisse for today's and tomorrow's business leaders. You're sure to be stimulated into broader horizons in your search for answers."­­Don Tapscott, author of The Digital Economy and Growing Up Digital

"Lance Secretan applies principles of higher consciousness to the business world. He is a 'corporate missionary' who not only convinces us of the need to bring soul in to the workplace, but shows us how to do it. This book is extremely valuable."­­Marianne Williamson, author of A Return of Love
