More than almost anything else, globalization and the great world religions are shaping our lives, affecting everything from the public policies of political leaders and the economic decisions of industry bosses and employees, to university curricula, all the way to the inner longings of our hearts. Integral to both globalization and religions are compelling, overlapping, and sometimes competing visions of what it means to live well. In this perceptive, deeply personal, and beautifully written book, a leading theologian sheds light on how religions and globalization have historically interacted and argues for what their relationship ought to be. Recounting how these twinned forces have intersected in his own life, he shows how world religions, despite their malfunctions, remain one of our most potent sources of moral motivation and contain within them profoundly evocative accounts of human flourishing. Globalization should be judged by how well it serves us for living out our authentic humanity as envisioned within these traditions. Through renewal and reform, religions might, in turn, shape globalization so that can be about more than bread alone.

This astonishing book invites you into a conversation between a teacher, John R. Ehrenfeld, and his former student now professor, Andrew J. Hoffman, as they discuss how to create a sustainable world. Unlike virtually all other books about sustainability, this one goes beyond the typical stories that we tell ourselves about repairing the environmental damages of human progress. Through their dialogue and essays that open each section, the authors uncover two core facets of our culture that drive the unsustainable, unsatisfying, and unfair social and economic machines that dominate our lives. First, our collective model of the way the world works cannot cope with the inherent complexity of today's highly connected, high-speed reality. Second, our understanding of human behavior is rooted in this outdated model. Driven by the old guard, sustainability has become little more than a fashionable idea. As a result, both business and government are following the wrong path – at best applying temporary, less unsustainable solutions that will fail to leave future generations in better shape. To shift the pendulum, this book tells a new story, driven by being and caring, as opposed to having and needing, rooted in the beauty of complexity and arguing for the transformative cultural shift that we can make based on our collective wisdom and lived experiences. Then, the authors sketch out the road to a flourishing future, a change in our consumption and a new approach to understanding and acting. There is no middle ground; without serious change at the most basic level, we will continue to head down a false path. Indeed, this book is a clarion call to action. Candid and insightful, it leaves readers with cautious hope.

In Flourish, award-winning CEO Dr. Rachel Talton takes women leaders on a powerful journey toward having it all without sacrificing their authentic selves. Compelling personal stories, rigorous research and experiential exercises help successful women stop hiding fear, guilt and overwhelm behind their Golden Masks, giving them a specific strategy to flourish. Redefining success with integrity to themselves with purpose, connection, contribution and legacy. Women leaders are often torn between seeking success, influence, impact and contribution in their organizations and the marketplace, and having a thriving family and personal life. They find that their desire to contribute professionally and personally often relegates a back seat to self-care, self-worth and wellbeing. In fact, the data show that many women who attain one or two of the traditional metrics of success find themselves sorely lacking in others, and often suffering in silence beneath a beautiful suit, great shoes, powerful title and the shiny, meticulously applied Golden Mask. Dr. Rachel builds upon years of executive experience, organizational and consumer research and expertise guiding Fortune 500 organizations and leaders to craft a powerfully practical guide to flourishing. She tells her own story and the stories of other women leaders who inspire as they turn sometimes tragic life events into triumphs. Through this book, Dr. Rachel takes readers on an experiential journey through the six dimensions of their lives to flourish - to grow luxuriantly and to prosper. As organizations desperately seek to reconcile stark data that reveal women in senior leadership provides a significant competitive advantage. For example, research shows that women leaders help companies outperform competitors by up to 26% in revenues, boards with three women have 66% higher ROI, 53% higher ROE and 42% higher ROS. However, only 4.6% of S&P 500 CEOs are women. Even knowing what we know today, women are still paid only 78 cents for every U.S. dollar men make. Women CEOs make about 11.5% less than their male counterparts. And at the current rate of progression, women won't reach pay equity with men until 2058. In Flourish, Dr. Rachel Talton helps women leaders peer beneath the Golden Mask to reveal their authentic selves and redefine the traditional metrics of success in order to flourish - leveraging the six currencies of purpose, joy, meaning, service, accomplishment and legacy. Leveraging scientific research in psychology, behavioral economics, and management theory, Dr. Rachel reveals the practical Flourish Model of Success while sharing inspiring stories of resilience, courage and transformation. Using a six-dimensional model of Success, Self-Care, Synergy, Spirit, Service and Legacy, Flourish helps women navigate, integrate and reshape their own futures, shattering old paradigms and creating their own sense of self-worth, self-value and contribution. Using interactive exercises to close the gap between their aspirations to flourish and the current state of wellbeing across each dimension, readers leave the Flourish experience with a dynamic path forward. By seamlessly integrating the six dimensions of flourishing and focusing on what matters most, women can flourish and have it all. And they can do so without losing themselves.
