ConsciousThe Power of Awareness in Business and Life
Conscious is a deeply human approach to personal change Our world is changing faster than our ability to adapt. Ambushed by speed, complexity, and uncertainty, many of us are unprepared for this acceleration. We act on autopilot as new challenges confront us. We are too reactive to problems and miss out on opportunities. We get hijacked by conflicting values and polarizing relationships. We face uncertainty with fear and mistrust. Stress and burnout are pervasive as many of us do not perform up to our potential. Organizations are not adapting well either. Seventy percent of change efforts fail. Slow execution, unrealized growth, unhealthy cultures, and obsession with short-term results undermine long-term success. Inside communities, there is more tension, diminishing trust in our institutions, and a growing inability to solve our most complex social problems. The primary culprit for these maladies is our lack of awareness. Let’s face it: Our current approach to change is running out of steam. And the cost of unaware people is too high to pay. In this age of acceleration, we need a fresh approach to living and leading. CONSCIOUS is our wake-up call – to be aware, awake, and accountable. Nothing is more important than understanding ourselves, our relationships, and our surroundings. Being conscious helps us think deeper, learn faster, and collaborate better. The more conscious we are, the faster we adapt, and the higher performing we become. Conscious is the new smart. As one of the premier global experts on leadership and transformation, Bob Rosen and Healthy Companies have revealed a profound truth about modern-day change: the most successful people, at all levels of society, follow four powerful practices of being conscious: Go Deep – Discover your inner self Think Big – See a world of possibilities Get Real – Be honest and intentional Step Up – Act boldly and responsibly Conscious is your personal roadmap through transformation – helping you adapt and accelerate into the future. To create sustainable change for yourself and your business. Why not be the one with your head lights on while others are driving in the dark?

Praise for CONSCIOUS "This book is outstanding. Well-timed in today's environment. Conscious will help people in all walks of life adapt and thrive in the age of acceleration. We need change leaders everywhere." —Brian Cornell, Chairman and CEO, Target "In Conscious, Bob Rosen offers a lifetime of wisdom between two covers. It's far too easy today to go through life with blinders on, focusing only on tasks at hand and priorities of the moment. His insights into human nature, professional relationships, the importance of listening deeply to others, and his belief in the limitlessness of human capabilities are inspiring and memorable. Highly recommended." —Michael D'Ambrose, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Archer, Daniels, Midland Company "Bob Rosen's timely, well-written new book goes to the heart of what it takes to lead in today's complex world: being aware of yourself and your surroundings is the essence of sustaining success. The message deserves to be widely read and followed to produce better leaders at all levels for the 21st century." —Bill George, professor of management practice, Harvard Business School; former Chair & CEO, Medtronic; bestselling author of Discover Your True North "Rosen and Swann make a powerful assertion: Conscious is the new smart! They remind us that the foundation for all leadership and performance is the deepening of humanity. 'Conscious' taps into our innate wisdom and aligns our head and heart to achieve transformation in our lives. This book is a must read. It just may spark a movement toward a more balanced and meaningful approach to work and life." —Kathleen T. Ross, PhD, Chief Administrative Officer, United States Institute for Peace "In a world of ever-accelerating change, Bob Rosen puts his finger on the key to survival: consciousness — being aware of what's going on around us, so we can take action to adapt. Leaders who read Conscious will be well-equipped to help guide their teams to thrive in the turbulent years to come." —Mike McGuire, CEO, Grant Thornton LLP "Read Rosen's groundbreaking new book, Conscious! It is your personal roadmap through transformation: Go Deep, Think Big, Get Real, Step Up. The book lays out a compelling, personal, and proven path for adapting into the future." —Marshall Goldsmith, the international bestselling author or editor of 36 books including What Got You Here Won't Get You There and Triggers "In this compelling and practical work, Bob Rosen tells us why being CONSCIOUS is so important. Whether you're leading yourself, leading others or leading a company, it's absolutely necessary to learn what it takes to be conscious all the time. The increasing pace of change around us can put our protect and defend mechanisms into overdrive and derail even the best of intentions. Be Conscious to find the light." —Lisa Mascolo, founder and CEO, Listen, Learn, Lead
