Prevailing wisdom tells business leaders to focus primarily on profit, which works in the short term…until your company inevitably encounters a crisis. Then the one thing that can save your company is the very thing walking out the door.
For twenty-five years, Shaara Roman, CEO and founder of The Silverene Group, has worked directly with executives to build company cultures that not only keep their businesses afloat in times of need but also lead them to greater profits and sustainability. Now for the first time ever, she shares the same wisdom in The Conscious Workplace, giving leaders of every industry the chance to build intentional cultures of their own.
Combining Roman’s diverse and unique experiences as an entrepreneur, HR executive, and Fortune 500 leader, straight-from-the-headlines research, and practical, actionable advice, The Conscious Workplace provides rich business insights to help leaders transform their companies by building purpose-led, people-centric, and values-driven cultures. Explore high-profile examples from companies like yogurt maker Chobani, mattress company Leesa, and King Arthur Baking Company, which have all harnessed a strong company culture to create a truly resilient business. No matter the size of your organization, The Conscious Workplace can show you how to get the most out of your greatest resources—people, purpose, and values—by investing in them. And when you focus on what really matters, as these case studies show, you make good on your commitment to ESG and increase profits.
A thought-provoking and thorough examination of the current state of workplace culture and the opportunities the future holds, The Conscious Workplace shows leaders at all levels how to strengthen their business to thrive in any crisis.

I read the book while I was out for three weeks for some surgery, and it was great! I especially like the way you did the summary of questions and statements at the end of each chapter. I really liked the chapter on Embodying Conscious Culture. I got quite a bit out of this book that will help me be a better, more conscious leader, to improve our team. Thanks so much!
