Before yesterday, I’d never heard of Joie de Vivre Founder Chip Conley

So I went to watch his TED Talkto get the best of his thinking and became totally engaged with his vision.

I highly recommend you watch it too. To get a feel for who he is and what he’s up to- then register for the Enlightened Business Summitto get more of Chip and his friends. (it’s free, and you don’t even have to leave home or office, even better ;-).

We all know business needs to shift. These are the people leading that shift with their ACTIONS, not their talk.

Here’s the release for your reading pleasure:

Joie de Vivre Founder Chip Conley to Host First Ever Free Online Enlightened Business Summit

Largest-ever Conscious Business Telesummit Oct. 25-29 to Emphasize Conscious Capitalism with Thought Leaders Tony Hsieh, John Mackey, Tim Ferriss, Googles School of Personal Growth Creator Monika Brekker, Stephen M. Covey, and 35 Other Leading Business Thinkers

San Francisco, Calif. (Oct.18 , 2010) Joie de Vivre Hospitality Founder and Executive Chairman Chip Conley has teamed up with The Shift Network, an online education company, to launch the groundbreaking Enlightened Business Summit. This free online event, to be held October 25-29, is the first to bring together top CEOs, bestselling authors, business change leaders and conscious entrepreneurs to share best practices on how business can fuse enlightened values with increased profits. Business leaders large and small will learn practical steps to create successful companies with great cultures that generate both passion, purpose and profits. Participants can register at

Conley, who will emcee the five-day telesummit, is author of PEAK: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow and founder of Joie de Vivre, the second largest independent hotel company in the U.S. He was one of only two business thought leaders invited to speak atTED this year, where he recommended organizations re-examine the metrics they’re using to measure success.

Spurred by his belief that companies must adopt a new paradigm of business leadership to survive, he collaborated with Stephen Dinan, CEO of The Shift Network, to bring together 40 leaders, CEOs, authors, visionaries, and provocateurs he most admires and who are on the cutting-edge of business thinking.

Headline speakers include Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book Delivering Happiness, as well as other New York Times bestselling authors such as Tim Ferriss (The 4-Hour Work Week) and Stephen M. Covey. The Summit roster also includes notable conscious capitalist CEOs such as John Mackey of Whole Foods, George Zimmer of The Mens Wearhouse and Casey Sheahan from Patagonia as well as Kleiner Perkins partner Randy Komisar and the creator of Googles School of Personal Growth, Monika Broecker. The unique summit will give live, direct access to speakers for free, with most leaders offering 30 minutes of their most important insights in a manner akin to the TED conference.

In an age of cynicism about capitalism, this Summit will be a powerful antidote, Conley says. Anyone whos involved with business will benefit from our extraordinary line-up of speakers who are creating businesses that truly serve people, planet, and profits. Each speaker will share their specific strategies so that tens of thousands of business professionals can harness their insights and create their own revolution in how business is done.

Guest Blogger: Ananda Leeke, Sisterhood, The Blog

I discovered Ananda Leeke via a surprising stream of @ tweets that she shared about me and some of the concepts and things I have been up to ;-)…how cool is that?

So I jumped over to her “Sisterhood, The Blog” blog to see who this leading edge sister-thinker was and I’m really impressed with what she is up to, too!

Now, I’m going to surprise her right back…by posting her poem “Sisterhood, The Blog” below.

(It’s  included in her new book That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery (iUniverse, Inc. – available on –

by Ananda Leeke

Have you heard?

There’s a new feminine frontier where women’s voices emerge from the silence without fear, shame, or judgment.

Where women plant seeds of thought and infinite possibilities in gardens that promote freedom of expression.

Where women reveal their dreams and tell their secrets because a sanctuary of safety has been birthed by each woman’s soul.

Thanks to the Internet and an expanding portfolio of social media tools, women have discovered common ground.

They have become the architects of their own lives.

Their blogs, videos, podcasts, and social networking sites are prime real estate in online neighborhoods that form communities of support.

Their conversations build relationships and bridge gaps.

They make their own news and tell their own stories

The end result is a plethora of networks that serve as launch pads for personal and spiritual empowerment, information sharing, creative expression, healthy living, new friendships, social justice advocacy, career reinvention, and business opportunities.

All of their energy and efforts illustrate one truth:  women are standing in their power and reclaiming their sacred feminine on and offline.

They move with a power not seen before.

It is rooted in being fully

P – Present when they

O – Own their lives as

W – Women who believe they have

E – Everything they need to live out their

R –  Revolution of authenticity.

One thing is for sure, women know their investment in themselves will yield a high return.

So get on board and join the revolution of Sisterhood, the Blog before it’s too late.

Where are the Women Business Thought Leaders?

picture-012.jpgThat’s a question I’ve asked for a while now and none of the pretty enlightened leaders I know seem to have a clue either. So, I thought it would be fun to plan to find them and when I do, they’ll appear in this category.

In 2006, I was a partner in a thought leadership publishing venture called 9th Element Press and we published our first award-winning business book, The Art of Original Thinking: The Making of a Thought Leader. It was written in record time by one of the most talented women thought leaders I know, Jan Phillips.

To become a thought leader, you have to be an original thinker because thought leaders don’t become that way by thinking someone else’s thoughts. (makes sense).

The Art of Original Thinking engages you in a 3 part process:

  • Release the Past,
  • Embrace the Present
  • Create the Future

It’s truly a ground breaking business book that introduces you to some of today’s most original thinking companies (and I guarantee they aren’t ones you’re used to reading about) and how they are increasing global consciousness and doing well while doing good.If you know a woman who you consider a thought leader, send me a note and tell me why and I’ll consider adding her to this section…
