WHAT IS OUR JOURNEY TO BUSINESS COMMON SENSE?

Our Journey to Business Common Sense shares not only Ayelet's journey, but real life stories of 21st century leaders who are living and working in new ways. The book invites you to fire up your imagination and discover your own pathways and tap into your own journey.

Ayelet helps us fix what is broken in today's business world by reminding us that there is nothing new and we have everything we need to create healthy organizations. She will introduce you to over 35 global leaders who are paving the way. And she'll share ancient wisdom that continues to resonate and provide “seven signposts" of the 21st century organization.

Through research and conversations, Ayelet shares a collective vision of business in the 21st century and introduces you to the big shifts that are already underway. You'll meet people from across all generations and from around the globe who are taking greater control of their lives, leaving behind antiquated practices that no longer serve them.

These 21st century leaders are C-Suite executives and entrepreneurs (many of whom you've heard of), who are changing the world and creating new ways of collaborating, forming unlikely partnerships and engaging communities. They demonstrate that our need for trust, building strong relationships and a sense of belonging are making a comeback. Increasingly, people want to be part of something bigger than themselves and make an impact in their lives and on the world.


WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR?

Our Journey to Business Common Sense is written for all 21st leaders who want to understand how to thrive in this fast paced, ever changing world and create healthy, people-centric organizations. If you're someone who doesn't fit in a box — whether you're an entrepreneur or employee — you will benefit from looking at the world through a new prism - one where human values triumph.

This book is a journey for those who love to travel. You will receive an itinerary, a travelogue, and there is no need to fasten your seat belt or know where the oxygen mask is. It's for people who want to join us in this journey of co-creating a new path for business and people in this century.

If you're searching for short cuts or magic pills this isn't the book for you. Instead, you'll find real life stories, tough questions and new approaches to help you imagine what's possible and a (gentle) push to pick yourself. Each of the “seven signposts" provides an assessment to help you get closer to becoming a true 21st century leader.

BOOK OUTLINE

In today's fast paced world, the organizations that are re-inventing themselves are the ones that are moving to the edges with purpose. They value dialogue and understand that people are at the center of everything. What's new is old. Our currency is trust.

Leg I - Setting the Stage for Our Journey (Expeditions 1-3)

There is nothing new. We have everything we need to start fixing what's broken in business today and we need to do it holistically. Creating a more humane world will require more than new organizational models that shift the deck chairs on a sinking ship. It will force a complete rethinking of the nature of organizations, work and life.

Ayelet's dream is to inspire people to move into a 21st century mindset. The human-to human economy means that business is personal in the 21st century. Global world economies and the human spirit will thrive if more organizations and their leaders embrace this new business mindset and replace the myth of work-life balance with a 21st century LIFEworking approach. The traditional separation between life and work no longer serves us.

Leg I of the book looks at why we need to develop a 21st century mindset, where we have lost common sense and why we need to regain it to thrive and build whole organizations and connected communities.

Expedition 1: Welcome to the 21st Century
Expedition 2: Putting A Stake in the Ground
Expedition 3: Un-conditioning. When in Doubt, Begin

Leg II - Key Signposts of the 21st Century Business World (Expeditions 4-10)

Once we choose a mindset of possibilities, we can shift our focus to a world of life and work where people are at the heart of business. Leg II dives into the seven key signposts of 21st century business to show how today's leaders can shape a new way of thinking about life and work. Ayelet also shares innovative new ways of working that are currently under the radar.

Each Expedition shares an overview of the signpost, in-depth and first person real life stories of 21st century leaders who are on this journey with highs and lows they faced. Each assessment will help you think about where you are and what is possible. It is by no means a cookie cutter approach. The baseline philosophy Ayelet fosters is that we are each unique and no one has the answers for us. We have to actually do the work to become whole again as individuals and organizations.

Expedition 4: In Search of Conscious Leaders
Expedition 5: At the Heart of Meaning Making and Shared Purpose
Expedition 6: Becoming Whole: A 21st Century Mindset
Expedition 7: Integration: It's Time to Bring the Team Back Together
Expedition 8: New Ways of Being
Expedition 9: Co-Creating Possibilities: Connected Networks, Trusted Communities and Unusual Partnerships
Expedition 10: LIFEworking: Picking Yourself

Leg III - Creating the 21st Century Organization on the Edge (Expeditions 11 - 12)

Leg III of Our Journey to Business Common Sense describes what we need to do to regain our common sense. It also summarizes the stories of 40+ 21st Century leaders who generously share their journeys. Ayelet provides a call to action that extends beyond the book and outlines how everyone can get engaged in making shifts happen in our open and connected world.

Expedition 11: Thriving in the 21st Century
Expedition 12: Our Call to Action

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Hi there - it's me, Ayelet. Before we go any further I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I could not be on this journey without you and my amazing community of kindred spirits and co-creators.

I'd love for you to choose a backer level that you're most excited about and pre-order this book (and any rewards that come with it).

If that's not an option for you, you can help by spreading the word. Please share with anyone who you think would benefit from experiencing this book and journey. You can also share more widely via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and whatever other community you are a part of.

We all have a story and we are all on this same journey together. Thanks again for being part of our journey! Your support means the world to me. More than words can say.

One more thing. If you were wondering why you see multiples of 18, it's because the number 18 is symbolic of giving life. That's why we are using multiplies of 18. And your support helps bring my book and our journey to life.

BREAKDOWN OF EXPENSES

I've opted to use Publishizer to self-publish my book for a couple reasons. It not only helps to make the book come to life but I'm equally excited about this opportunity to engage and connect with my community. To truly make this a co-creation, which is what the 21st century is all about, we need to be in this journey of imagining what's possible together.

Here is where the money is going:

Proofreading Editor
Content Editor
Book Design + layout
Printing costs
Marketing and Art
Story transcriptions
Campaign Administration Costs

--->Total budget : $15,555

Thank you so much for your support. It truly means the world to me.
