Critical to success in today’s world, characterized by the knowledge economy, is the ability to communicate and collaborate across the boundaries of cultures, disciplines, and functional areas. In the knowledge economy, where people tend to work in groups, what matters most is the “c factor,” the collective intelligence of the group. A firm that consists of several brilliant employees working on their own may not succeed if there is no collaboration and teamwork. The purpose of this paper is to consider critical concepts from the field of management with which every leader should be familiar -- corporate social responsibility, triple bottom line, learning organization, servant leadership, spiritual workplace, and employee engagement. These all tend to contribute to employee satisfaction, creativity, and productivity.
Keywords: Corporate social responsibility, triple bottom line, learning organization, servant leadership, spiritual workplace, five zeros, c-factor, employee satisfaction, employee engagement
