Drawing on his friendship with the Dalai Lama since the 1980s, Daniel Goleman relays conversations they’ve had about His Holiness’s core values and the scientific data reinforcing these concepts. Goleman presents examples of companies whose work illustrates the Dalai Lama’s teachings, by developing businesses that benefit people and the environment. He also offers practical advice for applying these tenets to your everyday life including:

  • Educate the heart by teaching ethics, conflict resolution, and compassionate values in schools.
  • Help people help themselves by empowering the world’s most vulnerable.
  • Rethink economics and make business meaningful, not just profitable.
  • Heal the Earth through a more precise analysis of how to lessen our impacts.
  • Be compassionate with others and yourself.
  • Be tough in applying transparency and accountability in the service of fairness.
  • Act now to help those in need in whatever ways you can.
