It’s time to pull back the curtain on business and expose it for what it really is: the most powerful force for good that exists in modern society. Yet over the years, we’ve forgotten. We’ve come to confuse business with war, endlessly fighting to capture customers and crush competitors. This causes great suffering and does not improve results.
The good news is that’s changing as we finally see the truth: business does better with love. As a result, more and more companies are joining what we call the Amare Wave (amare means love in Latin)—uplifting business by putting the power of love to work, while outperforming competition stuck in the old, warlike paradigm. This book is your invitation to catch this momentous wave too. Once you read it, you will never be the same.
Get ready to be equipped and inspired to:
- Lead with the energy of love, not war, in your company
- Amplify your role, influence, and fulfillment and discover authentic alignment in your work
- Dare to prosper differently in ways that elevate all of your stakeholders
- Make a game-changing impact on the world of business
Deeply grounded in behavioral science and various wisdom traditions, The Amare Wave will show you precisely why and how to champion a love-centered paradigm. Through the seven timeless principles of the Amare Way philosophy, the ABCs of the Amare Way practice — authenticity, belonging, and collaboration — and numerous stories, reflective activities, and concrete action steps, you will emerge with the courage and know-how to transform yourself and grow your company into its best.
There's no better time than now to make love an essential part of your business. Catch the Amare Wave!
