Relaunching the book! // 08.06.2009
That's right, I'm going to relaunch my book: Saving The World At Work on September 16. That's the one year anniversary of its original launch.
If you remember, on September 15 2008, Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy announcement trigger the market melt down and all bets were off (RE, the future). The media didn't have time to consider green, clean or long-term. In their minds, there... More »
Ecological Leadership // 07.13.2009
Psychology Today just ran an article, featuring Saving The World At Work. It quoted me talking about the upcoming responsibility revolution and how it would transform the business landscape.
The article quotes Dr. Daniel Goleman (author of Ecological Intelligence) talking about the requisite need for ecological leadership, both in its development and distribution.More »
Take a trip with Miles The Can // 05.04.2009
There's a great new video on YouTube called Miles The Can.
It tracks the journey of an aluminum can as it gets reborn over and over again. The story behind it is powerful: We need to realize how much energy is wasted for convenience.
If you liked The Story of Stuff, you'll enjoy Miles The Can -- a gift from The Natural Step organization.
Reframing Earth Day into Save The Humans Day // 04.21.2009
I believe that we should repackage being green into a quest to preserve the living environment for future generations. Save the humans!
Here's the bottom line: The planet will not implode, it will eventually become a terrible place for humans to live. New species, such as insects, will rise to power at some point, likely driven by climate change and pollution.
As long as we couch environmentalism into preserv... More »
Promote wellness at work // 04.09.2009
I think that company wellness programs are MONEY.
They create healthier employees and reduce insurance claims. Many companies find that the few year return on investment is three or four to one!
They are also a source of innovation and and leadership at work. When ex-Sierra Club president Adam Warbach helped Wal-Mart teach store managers eco-sensibility -- he realized that wellness programs were the missing link. Wh... More »
Using work as a platform to influence: The NBA // 04.03.2009
Basketball is going from orange to green.
This week, led by all-star Steve Nash, NBA is having it's first green week. To honor this, league officials have conducted what I call "the green re-imagine" exercise. Re-imagine your entire business operation as if green were the law OR the defining element of quality in the eyes of your customer.
They approached it with Reduce (Energy, waste), Reuse, Replace (organic... More »
Saints and Sinners: A Theory // 02.18.2009
In the next few years, we are going to see two kinds of companies emerge from this mess: Saints and Sinners.
A very recent survey indicates that CEOs are less popular than politicians -- a sign of things to come. In my book, Saving The World At Work, I predicted that the Responsibility Revolution would reshape branding as we know it.
My research indicated that the 2002... More »
Wear your green on your sleeve (label) // 02.05.2009
Even during these tough economic times, big brands are still investing in green.
They need to. This is the future, long after this recession is gone. As more and more reports about the impact of global warming roll in (such as the recent one predicting flooding in DC when ice caps melt), the panic will increase -- along with a feeling of personal responsibility to be more...

Check out a video book brief on BNET // 01.29.2009
Late last year, I spent a morning in SF, shooting a video book brief for BNET, a leading business and leadership network produced by ZDNET. I'm really proud of how it turned out. It helps explain the responsibility revolution and how you can be a part of it!More »
Live by The Law of Abundance // 01.20.2009
Our efforts to make a difference are under fire from the forces of scarcity. So, I've decided to post a very timely excerpt from my new book.
An excerpt from Saving The World At Work by Tim Sanders:
The Law of Abundance essentially states that there is always enough to go around. There are enough customers, enough talented people, enough recognition, enough of whatever is needed. Based on his... More »
