An Integral Business Perspective for the 21st Century
by Daryl S. Paulson, Ph.D.
Foreword by Ken Wilber

  Competitive Business, Caring Business is designed to provide managers and executives with new tools and methods for finding personal satisfaction in their unique contributions to the teams, companies, or industries they serve. The author, Daryl Paulson, the CEO of BioScience Laboratories, Inc., has successfully combined science and business in his personal and professional life and demonstrated in clear, simple, practical terms the true meaning of "integral business." In Competitive Business, Caring Business, he shows how the work of Ken Wilber, the world's foremost human science theorist, applies in the business domain. Paulson explains why the process of "doing business" must be considered in a holistic and integral manner if it is to meet the needs of the 21st century. Readers will learn how a win-win strategy can be developed which satisfies individual employees, work teams, senior management, and shareholders, as well as society and larger global concerns. Unlike other approaches, Paulson's integrative process of doing business is at once profitable, personally satisfying, and beneficial to the environment.

"Competitive Business, Caring Business is a unique attempt to look at the challenges in business in a more comprehensive way, integrating a broad range of management models and theories into a bigger picture of the possible. This book couldn't be more timely. Paulson points the way to a vision of corporate conduct that is at once practical and humane, grounded and visionary
-- Tony Schwartz, author Trump: The Art of the Deal (co-authored with Donald Trump), and of What Really Matters: Searching for Wisdom in America

“Daryl Paulson is a rare combination - a successful CEO and an accomplished scholar. In this valuable work he offers us a comprehensive, multidimensional approach to management. Based on cutting-edge integral theory, Competitive Business, Caring Business is a welcome resource for addressing the increasing complexity of these uncertain times.”
-- Leo Burke, Associate Dean and Director of Executive Education, Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame

"Daryl Paulson’s presentation has much to offer. It is fresh, provocative, and daring."
— Ken Wilber, author of A Theory of Everything: An integral Vision for Business, Politics, Science and Spirituality
