Elegant Business & Elegant Business Leadership

definition proposed by Yasuhiko Kimura

A recent newsletter from Vision-in-Action offers an article by Yasuhiko Kimura, "Elegant Business & Elegant Business Leadership".

Yasuhiko concludes:

Today we are entering the age of Elegant Business and Elegant Business Leadership in which the true success of a business is judged by the degree of its elegance — the quality that emerges when wholeness, integrity, balance, abundance, grace, and generosity are present within the organization and in its relationship to the world and the planet at large.

A footnote:

The term "elegant business" was first coined by Southern California Vision In Action Business Consortium member Linda Watkins of Watkins Consulting Group at a monthly meeting. However, the concept of Elegant Business briefly outlined above is the author's.

Vision without action is empty.
Action without vision is blind.

Ideology and opinion divide.
Quest and commitment unite.
