It is possible to create a thriving business culture where shared ideas, innovation, and creativity support an organization to succeed, expand and even defy expectations?

A business like this may seem a rare occurrence, but in truth, anyone can instigate a creative and collaborative culture by applying some simple tools – and being willing to become a conscious leader.

What is a conscious leader?

Consciousness includes all possibilities and rejects nothing. Consciousness allows us to take off the blinders and barriers we put in place with limited thinking and mindsets. A conscious leader is committed to seeing beyond any limitation or problem to what is truly possible – and they are willing to have anything, and anyone contribute to them along the way.

Here are 4 key elements you can put into play to consciously lead you, the business, staff and colleagues to create a business culture that is collaborative and expansive:

An Irrational Guide to Parenting, Part 2 - with Conscious Parents Conscious Kids Facilitators

Uncategorized Nov 06, 2022

The whole area of parenting can be very challenging for parents and kids. It doesn’t have to be. But most people make it that way. The expectations of how you are supposed to be as a parent, the conclusions about what it means to be a good parent, what a good parent does, what a bad parent does, what a good parent doesn’t do… you get the idea. No wonder so many parents and kids are not having any fun!

If you are trying to be a good parent, if you are trying to get it right, would you be willing to give that up? What if you were willing to do it wrong? What if you stopped judging you and your kids?

As Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness says, “I can’t teach you the rules of parenting because there are none. I can teach you the possibilities of parenting.” (Next Generation Telecall)

If you are interested in the possibilities of parenting, if you would like have FUN as a parent, if you would like to empower your kids to be all they can be,...

Success for business and business leaders today hinges on the ability to be adaptable; to innovate and take advantage of new opportunities constantly arising in today’s ever-changing markets.

Predictable business planning, strategy formulation and setting goals for the year with rigid precision no longer works and the truly successful businesses are those that are willing to be ahead of the curve and do something different.

How can your business planning better embrace change and the unpredictability of the world we live in?


1. Successes and failures of the past are not the basis of your strategic choices today.

These stories will remind you how valuable your first job was, too.

No matter how many times you’ve changed jobs or switched career fields, the lessons you learned from your first job have likely stayed with you. And whether you loved your first professional experience or spent the majority of time wishing for Friday, those lessons have shaped you into the manager, colleague, or entrepreneur you are today. 

We asked members of the Thrive community to share the most valuable lessons they gained from their first jobs, and how they used their experiences as opportunities for growth.

Give credit where credit is due

“I learned the importance of saying thank you. My boss at one of my very first jobs was incredible at building others up, giving credit where credit was due, and thanking each employee individually for their efforts — not just in mass group appreciation. This practice made me feel valued and want to work that much...

How to ‘Boss’ Better: Creating and Managing Happy, Engaged Staff

Uncategorized Nov 06, 2022

Employees who quit their roles say that 50%–90% of the time, the reason they leave involves their boss. Those who stay loyal and happy at work cite recognition, a sense of achievement, and being heard and valued in their job as key factors for enduring.

As a manager, you have a direct impact on staff engagement in their role and the organization. How do you make sure that you effectively involve, engage, and empower your staff?

Here are the essential questions to consider if you desire to be the kind of boss people don’t want to leave:

Do you share information?

Keeping staff out of the loop regarding organizational initiatives, strategies, and targets can severely limit their ability to add value. It can leave them feeling blindsided when problems arise that they know they could have contributed to changing—if they’d been made more aware.

While you don’t need to “tell all from the top,” it is...

Siento como que vuelo. Estoy sentada en un cafecito en el barrio de Las Letras en Madrid. ¿Cómo es que llegué aquí? Eligiendo. Hace un par de semanas recibí un correo que contenía un video con una pregunta que me encantó: “¿Cuánto espacio podemos ocupar mi cuerpo y yo para no vernos afectados por los universos y realidades de otras personas?” Y fue mágico. ¿Cuántas veces basamos nuestra vida en lo que escuchamos que hacen y dicen los demás, cuando nosotros sabemos que puede existir algo distinto para nosotros?

Estuve haciendo esa pregunta varias veces al día y le escribí para agradecerle a Laleh Hancock, quien me había mandado ese video. Ella fue un gran regalo para mi porque fue con quien me estrené como traductora el año pasado. La verdad es que yo nunca imaginé que pudiera dedicarme a...

Getting a pay raise is an important way for an organization to acknowledge the work and contribution you are making both in your role and to the business as a whole. However, according to information released in a recent Compensation Best Practices survey conducted by PayScale, while 66% of employers site talent retention as an area of increasing concern, most organizations are not implementing higher base pay increases in an attempt to address it.
