Bob Rosen provides a concise overview of Conscious--and how the powerful truths contained in this book can impact the future success of individuals, teams and organizations.
Conscious is a deeply human approach to personal change
Our world is changing faster than our ability to adapt. Ambushed by speed, complexity, and uncertainty, many of us are unprepared for this acceleration. We act on autopilot as new challenges confront us. We are too reactive to problems and miss out on opportunities. We get hijacked by conflicting values and polarizing relationships. We face uncertainty with fear and mistrust. Stress and burnout are pervasive while many of us do not perform up to our potential.
Organizations are not adapting well either. Seventy percent of change efforts fail. Slow execution, unrealized growth, unhealthy cultures, and obsession with short-term results undermine long-term success. Inside communities, there is more tension, diminishing trust in our institutions, and a growing inability to solve our most complex social problems. The primary culprit for these maladies is our lack of awareness.
Let’s face it: Our current approach to change is running out of steam. And the cost of unaware people is too high to pay. In this age of acceleration, we need a fresh approach to living and leading.
CONSCIOUS is our wake-up call – to be aware, awake, and accountable. Nothing is more important than understanding ourselves, our relationships, and our surroundings. Being conscious helps us think deeper, learn faster, and collaborate better. The more conscious we are, the faster we adapt, and the higher performing we become. Conscious is the new smart.

Conscious is your personal roadmap through transformation-- to help you adapt and accelerate into the future. To create sustainable change for yourself and your business. Why not be the one with your head lights on while others are driving in the dark?
"This book is outstanding. Well-timed in today’s environment. Conscious will help people in all walks of life adapt and thrive in the age of acceleration. We need change leaders everywhere." — Brian Cornell, Chairman and CEO, Target
"Conscious is an important book that lays claim to a unique and under-represented space in leadership literature." — Mike Petters, CEO, Huntington Ingalls, Inc.
"In ‘Conscious,’ Bob Rosen offers a lifetime of wisdom between two covers. It’s far too easy today to go through life with blinders on, focusing only on tasks at hand and priorities of the moment. His insights into human nature, professional relationships, the importance of listening deeply to others, and his belief in the limitlessness of human capabilities are inspiring and memorable. Highly recommended." — Michael D'Ambrose, Senior Vice President and CHO, Archer, Daniels, Midland Company
