WHY CORPORATE CONSCIOUSNESS MATTERS

“CORPORATE CONSCIOUSNESS”

“It’s not personal, it’s just business”:  A mantra that rattles in every corporate hallway.  So loud, at times, we forget who we are and what we have become.

Corporate profitability, growth and career development without strong values give way to destructive behaviors and damaging work environments.

In today’s corporate world, success is often equated with sacrificing our values and well-being for capital gain such as wealth, power and possessions.

“BUT THESE SACRIFICES ARE A LIE.”

Shawn Vij, a successful business leader and consultant for major Fortune 100 companies, became inspired to write this book after a “UNIVERSAL CROSSING” with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

In Moral Fiber, Vij shares his “awakening” through hard-won insights on ethical business practices and how they can be leveraged for personal and professional growth.

Filled with tips, tales, and tools to identify and eliminate toxic behaviors and motivators, as well as priceless lessons from top industry leaders and powerful research from academics, Moral Fiber is the ultimate guidebook on how to create a thriving business and career while staying true to who you are and what you believe.

Taking an innovative and secular approach to business ethics, Moral Fiber threads a strand of “corporate consciousness” that roars among the millennial workforce:  Capitalism with Compassion.

Moral Fiber is the result of Vij’s more than 25 years of business experience with Fortune 100 companies operating in a variety of market segments.  Today, the news is filled with examples of unscrupulous business practices and hostile work environments.  Whether in banking, high-tech, finance, government, retail, or even education, such organizations let anger, impulse, ignorance and greed overrule empathy in operating for a greater good.  We are losing our moral compass.

 

The powerful ideas and concepts described by Vij in Moral Fiber are well-crafted antidotes to toxic business tactics, as well as an in-depth course on what it means to be a truly effective leader today.  Throughout his career, Vij has developed powerful and effective tools to heal toxic environments, dispelling the myth that business is a zero-sum game between profits and ethics.  To see how Vij’s Moral Fiber practice can help you increase profitability, consumer trust, and employee satisfaction as part of a growing movement of ethical business leaders, fill out the contact form today!
