“The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides and gravitation,
we shall harness for God the energies of love.
And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world,
we shall have discovered fire!”
–Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Getting to the Heart of Business:
Shift Happened! Foresight is 20/20
A seismic shift of positive proportions is already well underway in San Diego.
In stark counterpoint to silent killers like heart disease, or silent scourges like depression, or not so silent dividers like polarizing political party affiliations, a stronger silent typography has emerged in America’s finest, kindest and most purpose-filled region. Like lotus blossoms that thrive in the murkiest of waters, running equally silent and equally deep, there is a steady emergence of heart-centered individuals, organizations & communities committed to a living from a deeper place of being, where love not fear is the prime driver, and elevating humanity is the goal, aim and purpose.
Tired of the sordid spectacle of the 24 hour news cycle, and yearning for real substance and significance, with a ravenous hunger for better ways to define success in life and in business, as well as a deep thirst for authentic connection and belonging, we’re seeing more and more individuals and organizations saying enough is enough!
Instead of capitulating to the status quo, they are consciously choosing to put people whole-heartedly at the center of their organizations, and shifting mind sets, heart sets and skill sets toward a love-centered approach to work and life. These companies know empirically and intuitively that doing well by doing good is enlightened self-interest with significant positive implications for attracting today’s workforce, connecting more deeply with customers, and making a difference of consequence for our communities.
While pockets of innovation are found everywhere, San Diego is helping lead the way to encourage the heart, exemplified with the latest work of two local authors, Steve Farber and Moshe Engelberg, & convened by local organizations including the Chamber of Purpose San Diego.
Best-selling author Steve Farber’s newest book “Love Is Just Damn Good Business”, was just released this month.
Dr. Moshe Engelberg’s book “The Amare Wave: Uplifting Business by Putting Love to Work is due out in November.
These thought leaders are propelling San Diego to a sea change that builds the amare wave and creates damn good business for all of us.
Business is not akin to war, so we need to stop talking and acting like it is. Deficit thinking is as dated and destructive as bloodletting. Companies that have the courage to lead with love, do better—often much better. That’s the key idea of Dr. Moshe Engelberg’s upcoming book The Amare Wave: Uplifting Business by Putting Love to Work. In it, he shows how a mighty wave, growing in momentum and force every day is propelling good organizations away from the fear-based “business as war” fighting paradigm, and toward a fresh, love-centered approach that works better for business and society.
Love is not only appropriate in the context of business, it’s at the very heart of great leadership, and, therefore, the very foundation of a thriving, competitive, sustainable enterprise. When love is intentionally part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, that’s when something transformative and great happens. That’s when you foster loyalty. That’s when you cultivate raving fans. That’s when people love you in return.
That’s the core message of San Diego author Steve Farber’s latest book, Love Is Just Damn Good Business, and its creating a new paradigm in the business world with implications that spill into every aspect of our lives.
If you are tired of getting pounded in the white water and ready to get in the flow that you already know, you’re invited to the official San Diego book launch party for Love Is Just Damn Good Business and the building of this new turning tide!
No one of us is as powerful as all of us and there is no bystanding!
We’re inviting you to co-lead this EVOL-ution (love backward that needs to be reversed).
If we can change the expectation and experience of what it means to be in business, we change everything!
This is way more than just a launch party; this is a sea change to an entirely new future for all of us.
To know and not to do, is not to know…
Join us on Friday, September 27 from 7 – 10 PM at Corporate Alliance of San Diego. There’ll be food, mingling with kindred spirits and great collective energy. Marco’s Pizza, a company featured in Steve’s book, is generously providing pizza and salads. And we’ll have other nourishment and sustenance for your heart and soul too.

It is time to do what we love in the service of people who love what we do:

“Love is misunderstood to be an emotion;
actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of
being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others.”
–Dr. David Hawkins
May You have This Same Experience, Seeing the World Through a Fresh Pair of Eyes…
This will blow your mind!
Thanks this week to Moshe E, Steve F, Larry H, Steve S, Larry K, Cathy J and so many of you bringing love to the world!
Will YOU pay it forward?
Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody else has thought.”
