Conscious Capitalism at the University of Colorado Boulder!This February, CU Boulder's Leeds School of Business hosted its 5rd annual gathering on Conscious Capitalism. What a pleasure to keynote this forum of students, faculty, and enthusiastic community members. My old friend Jim Autry, author of The Book of Hard Choices, offered an electrifying discourse on the power of values in business and the terrible cost of failing to honor simple human decency. Three women leaders, Dawn Bitz, Dana Watts, and Beth Jensen, vividly described the joys and challenges of Boulder's favorite "industry"-the Great Outdoors. I spoke on Conscious Capitalism, illustrating how it's practiced with a video on The Container Store then invited people to road test my new self-assessment tool: "Are You A Conscious Capitalist?" More on that soon! Thanks to everyone at the Center for Education on Social Responsibility (CESR) at the Leeds School, especially Nan Stout. Thanks also to Leyla and Mark Steele and to Alain Bolea.
Celebrate Spring with Conscious FlowersIf March wind & April showers inspire vases of flowers-why not make them conscious blossoms-as in local, organic, or Fair Trade? Whole Foods Market sells local flowers and imports stems grown in developing countries that meet the retailer's in-house Fair Trade standards. Flower production, says Fair Trade USA, is "one of the most dangerous types of agricultural work" because mostly women workers are exposed to harmful chemicals. Since 2007, however, conscious shoppers have bought more than 50 million Fair Trade flowers, says the US certifier. BloomNation, an FTD-type alternative, promotes top local florists and their specialty bouquets. You know what you're getting and get more for your money. Easter and Mother's Day are coming! Think Conscious Flowers. Check out the full story.
How Transparency Grows People and ProfitIf you're reading this, you're no stranger to Conscious Capitalism or the values that drive it. Transparency is a top value at Whole Foods Market, where a team member can look up any coworker's salary and bonuses. Co-CEO John Mackey, who launched the policy in 1986, says, "If you're trying to create a high-trust organization where ... people are all-for-one and one-for-all, you can't have secrets." Excellent point. Furthermore, as a landmark Watson Wyatt study demonstrated, high-trust organizations outperform their low-trust counterparts by 286 percent! When people ask Mackey, why is so-and-so is paid X, while I am only paid Y, he candidly replies, "If you accomplish what this person has accomplished, I'll pay you that, too." Here's the story, based on The Decoded Company: Know Your Talent Better Than You Know Your Customers. The Watson Wyatt study is from The Speed of Trust (Free Press, 2006) Stephen M. R. Covey, p. 21. Spring is my favorite season, as I am sure you can tell. I hope this wonderful season brings you spiritual renewal and earthly delights! Love, Patricia

CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM and CONSCIOUS MONEY
Every January Fortune magazine comes out with its new list of "The 100 Best Companies To Work For," a priceless resource for Conscious Capitalists, Conscious investors, Conscious Money fans, and job seekers. Find it at your newsstand or online Xanax For Sale, (fortune.com, yahoo finance, etc.). In December 2013, Glassdoor put out its own list of 50 great places to work (as well as a second list of 50 additional great medium sized workplaces). While Fortune focuses on more established firms and Glassdoor tends to spotlight social media and tech upstarts, both are celebrated for their objectivity because each is based on employee rankings. It's fun to compare the two. Personally, I'd seriously consider investing in ANY (publicly traded) Fortune "100 Best Company" that's also recommended by investment advisors. Not so most of the Glassdoor firms, which are a bit too volatile for a 50+ investor. But if I were in my 20s or 30s, I'd want a job at a Glassdoor firm-and the stock options I might receive there could cultivate a nice nest egg of Conscious Wealth.
