Business Philosophy: The Organizational Consciousness and A Conscious Enterprise!


The meaningful organizational consciousness presents a collective consciousness of a set of organized people and their development and vision to shape a successful conscious enterprise. It proposes an integrative hierarchical framework of three levels of organizational consciousness: material, social and spiritual.

Material is about making the organization financially and economically strong. It is an integral achievement where the success story streams down to meet the ocean.

In social, a group of souls must become more conscious to attain like organic self-expressive life. At the experimental level, collective consciousness conceived by an experience-based transcendent structure, shared by a group of highly organized people. A conscious enterprise works like a nervous system, which is having 100 billion neurons works together that carries electrical impulses to the brain to control the full functionality of the body.

For an individual person, in the dualistic school of consciousness where psychology predominates, mind and brain functions together. A person can live at a very narrow self-consciousness, as an atomistic individual i.e., the impressions, emotions, dreams, logical thinking, etc., where it can be exchanged with the term ‘‘awareness’’ or ‘‘experiential consciousness’’. These shared elements eventually become the basis of ideological grounds for members of a society or an organization.

Business organizations are an integral part of the markets in which they operate. An organization needs to make a choice of viewing itself as a separate entity, an atomistic player in the market or as a sub-system operating for a larger social cause.

Organizations may primarily operate at market consciousness, societal consciousness or spiritual consciousness.

To outline the social consciousness, an organization makes connections between employer-employee. It is not possible with individual efforts. At this level organization values social merit, aim for making a partnership with individual stakeholders and define success in terms of shared destiny. Generation of a shared destiny largely depends upon the corporate nervous system, which is followed by HR policies and performing corporate social responsibility. All the members inspired by a similar mission and work for achieving the purpose.

A firm may decide to build a shared destiny relationship with some outside the organization suppliers and dealers as well.

Innovation is not enough to build a sustainable organization. You need a soul.

A spiritually conscious organization focuses on facilitating its members to find meaning at their work. The employee should feel that they are contributing to a common destiny. At this level of consciousness, the organization is able to unleash the individual human power to run the corporate nervous system. It is the backbone of creativity and innovation.

A spiritually conscious organization is the one engaged in a meaningful work environment. An environment that encourages gender equality, free by race, ethnicity, religion or culture. Fortune list of best companies to work for America reaffirms that these are places where people find the work meaningful (Colvin, 2006). They feel they are contributing towards a larger cause.

Thus, spiritually conscious organizations transcend their business boundaries and are able to create meaningful relationships with the larger society. An organization, which reaches this level of consciousness, has a meaningful relationship with the community and the state.

Organizations moving from market consciousness to social consciousness achieves better integration of innovation, efficiency, equity, and equilibrium.

Review: The Hidden One by Ruchir Gupta


When I started reading “The Hidden One”, the first time I was shocked about knowing a hidden page about history where children of the cruelest Mughal Emperor, Aurengzeb had so many sons and daughters and some of them such as Zebunissa who tried to rebel, protest against her father silently through an artistic way of creating secret poetic society such as Makhfi. Makhfi secret society may still exist made by blood pressure increased and made me think what type of poetry they might be writing these days. Interesting novel.

As Ruchir already mentioned in his note, it was hard to find historic evidence of all the facts what was really happened in the past? But he tried to fill the gaps by adding his own imagination. I truly admire the piece of work. I also came to know about his past novel Mistress of the Throne, I will be glad to read that book and review. It seems like I have watched Baahubali 2: The Conclusion before I watch Baahubali: The Beginning. The content of the story is very cinematic and wish Ruchir to make these novels as feature films in the future so more audience can come to know about such thrilling historical fictions.

Thanks for the book. I wish there will be more illustrations in the book in the future editions. I also wish to know if there is any hidden society such as Makhfi if still exists. Wish you all the best Ruchir for your beautiful 2nd book.

Review: The Outcasts by Lidija Stankovikj


“The Outcasts”, named perfectly for this novel. The visual description of the storytelling that increased my appetite to read this book. How religion and culture portray society and add consequences in human life?

Lidija Stankovikj’s writing style is mind-blowing. During the study, I really wonder, how intense her research on the anthropologic diversity in different religions. Her writing style is vigorous and the footers are very helpful time to time to understand typical terms associated with a different culture. I also liked the chapters like The River, The Kalpataru Tree,  A Thread of Evil, there were stories concealed like the jewels and added new flavours, colours to portray the characters in the novel.

The story is wrapped around major three characters, their spirituality, religious practices, fight about survival and breaking out the obstacles to overcome the criticality of their moral obligations.

To live in a society, where we all have to oblige a few rules and embrace the reality. Which is always a difficult task. People who cannot oblige by the hardcoded reality is bound by the sadness and battling an eternal fight against their very existence. Which is not wrong and the world keeps learning from them and evolves.

Thanks for the book and heads up to Ms. Lidija for your excellent first novel. I will wait for your next book.

 

Review: Secret Notes From Iran by Nadim Siraj


This could not be possible to know Iran’s geopolitics, culture, war without reading the “Secret Notes From Iran”. The book I picked up randomly for review from LeadStart. I wanted to understand like a few things, what will be the difference between Iran and my neighboring countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan.

I traveled many of these countries and was curious to divulge the same about Iran. I found many known facts like the headscarf for women, solo performance is banned in public by woman, but I wasn’t aware of group performance is allowed by women. Interesting, to know the anti-American slogans posters in Teheran. I am worried about reading the notes on the high tension circumstances people living in, which deeply moved my utter sympathy for the peace and prosperity for the localities.

I would like to thank lionhearted journalist, Mr. Nadim Siraj, for his brave storytelling. I would like to visit the historic Azadi Tower in Tehran. I would also like to thank Platinum Press for their honest approach of publishing the confidential notes. Great inventiveness and I would look forward to reading more geopolitical books in the future.

 

With Love,
