Conscious Business

The quality of individual and group consciousness within an organization is the best predictor of its growth and sustained success.

“The secret of success in business today is to develop the field of creativity that lies deep within each individual. Consciousness shapes our abilities to self-start, overcome adversity and access high levels of creativity and strategic thinking.”  – Carol Sanford

Recently the desire for conscious ways of approaching business evolution has exploded into the mainstream — as today’s visionaries know their personal satisfaction and business success are linked to creativity, authenticity, character, mutual benefit, and mindset.

Did you realize that more than 78% of top business leaders are supported by mentors, coaches, or Mastermind groups?

Transformative change is most successful if new concepts are supported by a personal guide — a coach or consultant — who can light the way to your bigger picture, assist you
with clarity for your blind spots, and help you design the roadmaps to fulfill your dreams.

Today’s organizations must be nimble and creative.  Learning by tackling real projects is the fastest way to integrate new concepts and keep from falling back into old patterns. Successful change occurs when supported by a facilitative partner with an outside perspective, who can see the whole system.

We are moving away from a “Me” mindset into one of collaboration, coalition, and focus on the greater good. This shift requires new skills and 21st century means of problem-solving and cooperation.

Today people want organizations they work in and buy from, to have a role in creating global change.  It doesn’t have to be a grandiose effort, but it does have to be meaningful and related to the aim of the company.

People also aspire to affiliate with success — so healthy profits that can be re-invested in people and the organization are just as important as doing good work.

Therefore, it is critical to engage the hearts and souls of an organization’s people as guiding lights of integrity, purpose, and responsibility.  Nowhere is this more critical than a small business or community.

How can Sallena’s expertise be valuable to my organization?

I have worked with hundreds of small organizations, teams, and boards of directors (from 1-300 members) in a wide scope of private and public industries.

It’s very likely I have worked with professionals in your field. Yet, if I haven’t you are not at a disadvantage —  quite the contrary. Here’s why:

People in your field are probably ALL doing the same things to solve problems and grow their businesses, because they look for solutions in the same places.

What my clients have found exceedingly helpful is that I bring an extremely fresh perspective to their process and give them resources they’ve never heard of in their field.   Because of this, they stand out in an overcrowded marketplace and are the ones who start to thrive.

When you own a small business, managing nearly everything in your business or practice , it can be overwhelming to wear so many hats.   There is a rich cross-pollination of best practices and wisdom across industries that I would love to share with you.

For example:

Years of working on team-building within the private sector has helped me teach non-profits how to inspire and develop their Boards of Directors and volunteers.

The dental industry is very advanced with its systems for customer service and patient follow-up that I have been able to successfully adapt with my clients who are in spas and salons.

Vice versa, working with inclusive non-profits has given me the opportunity to share collaboration techniques with forward-thinking leaders who have inherited or outgrown their old-fashioned hierarchies.

From a professional organizing firm I gleaned many easy systems to share with artistic and creative people to help systemize paperwork,  information, and supplies so that they have time to focus on their strengths and talents.
