QUANTUM MANAGEMENT

Feb 24, 2020 | Published Books & Articles

by Chris Laszlo (Author)

The paper addresses the following questions:

 What is Quantum Management and why is it needed for New Paradigm applications in business?

What are its foundations in theoretical and applied science? For example, how do the Double-Slit and Bell Theorem experiments in quantum physics offer important insights for managers?

How can experiential practices of connectedness, also referred to as direct-intuitive practices, elevate a person’s consciousness? Why is transforming consciousness the highest point of leverage for scaling positive impact businesses?

 

 

Abstract

 

Quantum Management brings to light the power of direct-intuitive practices—such as meditation, nature immersion, and countless others—to transform a leader’s consciousness as the highest point of leverage for entrepreneurial creativity embedding social purpose. Layered on top of such practices are insights from quantum physics and related disciplines that offer a radically different view of organizational life. Such insights help managers understand how direct-intuitive practices work to change a person at the deepest level of their identity.

Direct-intuitive practices give managers an experience of wholeness that heightens their awareness of how their actions impact others and the world. Such awareness leads managers to pursue business as a force for good not only because of the analytic business case for it, which remains important, but because of who they are being. Recent developments in science inform their experience by re-framing their understanding of the nature of reality.
