Even as our boom-bust economy is failing, more and more leading companies are embracing an approach to business that no longer separates work from the rest of life - with the potential to bring us fulfillment as individuals and as a glorious future for the entire planet

"The Awakened Company recognizes the integral power of humane practices within business. Companies driven by noble service to all stakeholders are in the position to elevate our whole world." - TONY HSIEH, CEO of

"This is a must-read for those of us in the organization world. - DAVID DANIELS, M.D., Professor Emeritus, Stanford University, and Enneagram pioneer.

The Awakened Company represents an evolutionary leap from the "business is business" mantra that stifles creativity, neglects human wellbeing, and treats work as separate from the rest of life. Entrepreneur Catherine Bell reveals how businesses can be prosperous, sustainable, caring, interlocking communities that benefit all their stakeholders--those who work in them, the communities they serve, the international community, and the planet. The book's premise is that work isn't separate from life, and the metrics for success in business need to change at a fundamental level if the world is to transcend its present crises, which increasingly threaten us all. There's another way of doing business, and a shift in our behaviour could in very short order fuel innovation, open up undreamed of markets, and by so doing bring prosperity to the entire planet.

Catherine's book is a true reflection of her essence! Catherine brings all of her energy and spirit to everything she undertakes, and her book continues to support this! The theories and philosophies contained within the pages, supported by the statistical facts, create a very thought provoking read from cover to cover. Having been a client of Catherine's for several years, it is wonderful to be able to share with the team why we have been doing the work we have been doing. The Awakened Company is the perfect medium in which to do just that!

Lots of great information on a new and better way of being in business, and on a new culture that includes all stakeholders as well as the Earth on which we live.
