“Carol Sanford uniquely understands how to develop more conscious, creative, innovative, and intentional human beings. Her work contributed to exponentially increasing the value of my company and perhaps most important, helped us discover that work can be deeply fulfilling in ways that feed your soul.”
Jeffrey Hollender, Founder & CEO SustainNatural.com, Founder, Founding CEO Seventh Generation
“Carol advocates for a vision of firms as cradles of human development, supporting their employees through journeys of discovery that focus on the lived experience of the customer. Her work points the way to building authentically purpose driven firms that will drive the kind of disruption that my own research suggests is likely to be catalysts in reimagining capitalism and to a way of being in the world that is simultaneously deeply pragmatic and an expression of transformative hope.”
Rebecca M. Henderson, John and Natty McArthur University Professor, Harvard Business School
“Carol has already influenced my own thinking and that of Kauffman leaders and we are partnering with her for more evolution in entrepreneurship and education to great ends. It’s just what the world needs to transform our fractured and fragmented workplace culture into a healthy, regenerative whole system. You will see why I so strongly recommend this work.

Since she began teaching at the school, the impact of Carol’s regenerative frameworks and concepts has reached beyond the classroom.

The Regenerative Business is essential for any leader looking to design and lead a thriving 21st century organization.

Original, powerful, and persuasive, The Regenerative Business exposes the limited worldviews and minimal expectations that drive most organizations. In their place, it offers practical and insightful frameworks for creating “regenerative” processes, illustrated with successful and profitable real-world applications of these ideas. Promoting ways of seeing and being in the world that couldn't be more timely or essential, The Regenerative Business details models that engage the whole person in the larger systems in which they operate.
