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."
