I love your book “The Leader’ Way”. Briefly, I’m a 39 year old New Zealander who 14 years ago founded an ethical, design led company producing sportswear using pure fine merino wool. We now sell in 30 countries. I have deep beliefs, which are aligned with the philosophies in your book. I have read aloud excerpts to some colleagues and they loved it. Thanks for the contribution you have made to me, and to business in general with this wonderful book.

Three weeks ago I held a summit for 50 leaders and future leaders at Icebreaker in New Zealand. As we considered our way forward, we were listening for 'the Right View'* before we chose 'the Right Way'*. Everyone was given a copy of your book prior so it was fun to put it into practice. It was a very helpful theme which meant a lot to people.
* Right View and Right Action are part of Interconnected Leadership

Rodney Smith, Boulder, Colorado USA. I am the owner of a small manufacturing food business in Boulder Colorado. I am a Buddhist so this book was definitely in my wheelhouse. Having said that I would recommend this book to other business people who are looking for alternatives to the mind set that most American firms today have on profit and competition. The businesses culture today is so obsessed with maximizing profit that we are missing a broader picture of what we can accomplish in business and what businesses can do for society in general. This book addresses alternative ways of approaching business that accomplishes the goals of profit but also how your time spent in business can better yours and others everyday life, worthy goals.
United Kingdom. “The Director. It applies the concept of Buddhism to business decision-making using concepts such as the “Right Way”, interdependence and impermanence. To simplify, it’s a Hippocratic, do-no-harm creed: companies should have integrity, and leaders “mindfulness”. There’s much to learn, nothing to offend-just leave your cynicism at the door.
France. The ideal time for business executives is to train their minds is instead of getting stressed when facing delays in travel or elsewhere./ A company where the employees, clients and shareholders are unhappy has not much of a future./ “Good news can wait, bad news must be transmitted immediately to the leader “. This is the only way for the leader to discover problems at an early stage./ A company losing money dies, this is also true for people, but that does not mean that the purpose of life is to eat./ The free market is a good start but has to become a “Responsible Free Market” for the world to survive.
