You are not likely to achieve wealth and life satisfaction by simply pursuing money! This course will help you achieve the forms of wealth that lead to business success, sustained life satisfaction and hapiness. Money is a natural outcome of other forms of wealth… relationships, trust, values, competence, the ability to innovate and persist. This is a course on wealth strategy and it can be followed by both individuals and companies.
There are five forms of wealth, capital, that form a circle of wealth generation. These are Spiritual Capital, Social Capital, Human Capital, Innovation Capital and Financial Capital. Each section of this course provides an understanding of each form of wealth and presents a self-assessment and action planning model.
Following this path will generate wealth in your business and in your personal life.
Stephen Covey wrote that “If you want to make minor, incremental changes and improvements, work on practices, behavior or attitudes. But if you want to make significant, quantum improvements, work on paradigms.” In Sustainable Wealth I am proposing a paradigm shift in how we personally pursue wealth and how our corporations create strategy to enhance the creation of value for their shareholders, employees, and society. Money is not in the beginning. The word, the creative spirit, purpose and values, are in the beginning. The cycle of wealth begins with a creative act of leadership that inspires unity of energy and effort. The ideas, the creative spirit, purpose and values – spiritual capital – come first. This then generates the wealth of social and human capital that stimulates innovation capital and finally results in financial capital. If not managed properly, it ends with decaying financial capital piled onto a failed moral scrap heap; an empty shell consumed by material illusions of wealth.
