As humanity, we’re standing at a crossroads. The only institution that’s powerful enough and able to deal with the pace of change is business. And yet is business really conscious of the urgent needs of the global whole today? Regarding critical need for change, how can we transform businesses so they’ll take the lead for the good of all? What can we do as individuals to transform the way we work? Learn from two globally leading change-makers. Paul Polman, former CEO of Unilever and author of NetPositive, one of the most visible Conscious Leaders in the world, has successfully turned an organization of over 100,000 people towards purpose and contribution. Entrepreneur, global strategist and founder of the World Business Academy, Rinaldo Brutoco, offers an eye-opening overview of what we’ll be facing during the coming years, and what we can do to address the challenges ahead of us – both as an individuals and as organizations. Hosted by Bend & Stretch founder, Maryama Marong, and Peter Matthies of the Conscious Business Institute, the interviews in this episode with Paul Polman and Rinaldo Brutoco are hand-picked excerpts, with permission from the Conscious Business Institute Master Program, to catalyze this pivotal discussion.

Following Choosing Earth, Choosing Peace, and Voices for a Thriving Future, the Evolutionary Leaders are thrilled to be presenting Choosing to Serve. It features especially Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati (Sadhviji) of the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh, India. Sadhviji is a recent recipient of President Joe Biden's Presidential Citation for Lifetime Achievement and service, and author of the recently acclaimed book FROM HOLLYWOOD TO THE HIMALAYAS: A JOURNEY OF HEALING AND TRANSFORMATION. She dialogues deeply with Convergence and Light on Light Media Host, Karuna, and Denise Scotto, Esq., Chairperson of The International Day of Yoga Committee at the United Nations. The discussion follows from this annual event, celebrated each June, and its emphasis on the ongoing myriad realms of service performed by Yoga communities all around the world. These are featured in an October 2022 special issue of LIGHT ON LIGHT MAGAZINE ( Sadhviji's work encompasses a vast area of public service including personal and environmental health, education, sanitation, public hygiene, and the well-being especially of women and children. She emphasizes that it is the unitive consciousness-- that we have emphasized in all these Evolutionary Leaders’ broadcasts-- spirituality, spiritual practice and the balance of Being and Doing, that well-springs a life of service. And it, in turn, ignites real Transformation-- across entire human communities. The discussion deeply relates spirituality and transformative action, on all levels of scale. It connects truly with the message of the Evolutionary Leaders’ book, featured across these broadcasts, OUR MOMENT OF CHOICE: EVOLUTIONARY VISIONS AND HOPE FOR THE FUTURE. Join us for this profound broadcast, brought to you for The International Day of Non-Violence, October 2, 2022.
