About Carol Sanford | Carol Sanford’s work is deeply rooted in the belief that people can grow and develop beyond what their leaders or anyone sees possible: to be increasingly entrepreneurial, innovative, and responsible in their business and personal actions. She approaches her work as an ecosystem with stakeholders to the business in order to create the organizational conditions and human capability for people to innovate and contribute. Through a Socratic and contrarian approach, backed by research and stories, Carol challenges leaders to rethink everything they currently know about leadership, management, and work design. In the end, she guides people to find their individual and collective “promise beyond able-ness,” embedding enormous possibilities into an organization. Her latest book is No More Feedback: Cultivate Consciousness at Work. Sanford is also the author of three previous books: The Responsible Business, The Responsible Entrepreneur, and The Regenerative Business.

The Caring Mandate
July 23, 2014 - By: Carol Sanford
“It is very common to hear sales and marketing leaders talk about ‘relationship.’ ... We have to go toward something deeper and more at the core of relationship. I call it the Essence-to-Essence connection. Something in us connects with something outside of us, at a core level, and meaningful magic happens.”
Archaic “Best” Business Practices Toxic to Resilience, Innovation, and Change (Plus, What To Do Instead!)
Nov. 21, 2017 - By: Carol Sanford
“The concept of ‘best practices‘ is no protection against toxic practices. Most of these ‘best practices‘ have never been validated and are marketing hype invented by a consultant company.”
Stop Undermining Democracy and Your Business
Jan. 23, 2019 - By: Carol Sanford
“Why is it that organizational leaders, and people in general, have such difficulty recognizing the negative impacts of their business practices and work designs? Why do we so deeply believe in what is later found to be not only untrue, but often harmful? … I believe it is the lack of a discernment and reflective process to examine what we are sold.”
