“It’s not personal. It’s just business.”
A mantra that rattles 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.
