Human-Centric Business

I’ve been wanting a phrase to describe our business philosophy.  Actually it’s not just our business philosophy, it’s one that I see traces of in many of the great business books including ones written by Tom Peters, Peter Drucker, Dale Carnegie, and Seth Godin.  The concept is to build a business around being a better human as much as you build it around generating profit.  The phrase that comes to my head to define this is Human-Centric Business.

To me, Human-Centric Business means that as an employer you take on the role of teaching, empowering, and growing your employees.  Running a human-centric business means that you don’t just hire employees to do a job, to delegate tasks to, or to run part of your assembly line.  You are creating a community with your business and your role as an employer is to be a mentor in business and life.  If it’s not one of your strong suits currently, get some “life coaching” (bad term, good profession) to learn how to be more self-aware.  Self-awareness generates more awareness of others and this is the single key to becoming an amazing boss.

Human-Centric also means that your business is generating something positive for the world – something with the benefit of the larger population in mind.  I recognize this is a gray area but I feel confident that if you find self-awareness the rest will take care of itself.
