Operate your business with compassion to regain a healthy connection to the world. Blaine Bartlett is the CEO of Avatar Resources, a global leadership consultancy that provides the resources and services to foster compassionate capitalism. Today’s capitalist society is filled with toxic workplaces centered on wealth accumulation and competitive values. To reconnect with business more positively and soulfully, we must interrupt these toxic patterns and focus on being distributive and supportive. Connecting your business to the market compassionately breeds healthy workplaces where employees and consumers can grow and thrive. Business is born out of connection, so make those connections compassionate!
