From "good ole boy" politics to the medical establishment, from organized religion to professional sports, the women of the 1990s are challenging and overturning the male-dominated status quo, reintegrating female values and perspectives and recasting the social, political and economic megatrends of the day. In Megatrends for Women, Patricia Aburdene and John Naisbitt, the internationally respected social forecasters who gave us the number one bestsellers Megatrends and Megatrends 2000, now outline the ways women are transforming every sector of contemporary life. Drawing on a wealth of data on social change, they offer example after example of women making a difference as CEO's, athletes and political and spiritual leaders. The women's movement has reached "critical mass" say Aburdene and Naisbitt, the point at which a trend becomes a megatrend. There may be setbacks, but women's march toward equality will henceforth become unstoppable. Chapter by chapter Megatrends for Women documents the sweeping changes women need to be aware of to be empowered now and in the future:. A record number of women candidates are seeking political office; a woman will be president of the United States by 2004;. Women-owned businesses employ as many people as all the Fortune 500 companies put together;. From homelessness to the environment, from population control to drug abuse and crime, women are asserting a leadership role in finding the solutions to the most intractable social problems;. Women dominate in six of the seven most popular fitness activities; at the 1992 Winter Olympics, women won all five of the U.S. gold medals;. Forty to fifty million women will undergo menopause in the next two decades; as activists, they will revolutionize medicine's approach to breast cancer and heart disease;. Whether theologians, nuns or New Agers, women are transforming both religion and spirituality by rejecting the notion of a male divinity and embracing the archetype of the Great Goddess;. After decades of male domination, female designers are now assuming leadership roles in the fashion business;. Women's natural leadership style in business is today's progressive management model and widely endorsed by male business gurus;. The new relationship between the United States and the former Soviet Union shifts the focus from military to domestic matters, opening the way for women to lead in the New World Order. Megatrends for Women describes the state of the art of women today and offers a prescient look at the future as women assume leadership in the 21st Century

Conscious money : living, creating, and investing with your values for a sustainable new prosperity by Patricia Aburdene( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patricia Aburdene, author of the bestselling Megatrends 2010, brings together the spiritual and practical in a guide to achieving prosperity through the values-based megatrend of Conscious Capitalism. In Conscious Money, Patricia Aburdene shows readers how to grow wealth by honoring and integrating their values with sound money sense. She offers practical strategies to penetrate paralyzing fear in the face of stalled real estate sales, a volatile stock market, and the threat of job loss--and gives concrete advice on how to navigate a radically different economy as the recovery gains traction and new opportunities blossom. Conscious Money aims to shift financial thinking from dread to empowerment. Conscious Money is a megatrend, a grass roots movement that promotes a holistic and values based approach to money. While the traditional model favors investors only, Conscious Money is centered on honoring personal values, customers, employees, suppliers, communities, and the environment as well. Readers learn how to define their personal money values, close the gap between spiritual thinking and money, and listen to their intuition, while simultaneously acting with sound money management principles"--

Megatrends 2010 by Patricia Aburdene( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A change in business is coming--one that is far more important than advances in information technology or a shift in the economy. In Megatrends 2010, best-selling author and legendary social forecaster Patricia Aburdene charts the forces that will shape the way business is conducted in the next ten years. These trends will give rise to an economy driven by social responsibility, spirituality, and consciousness. Using the same proven methods of prediction used in her previous Megatrends books, Aburdene presents compelling evidence for a revolutionary shift towards enlightened business in the next decade--and shows why success for any business will hinge on merging capitalism and consciousness

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schon einmal lag sie richtig, als sie zusammen mit John Naisbitt in dem Millionen- Bestseller Megatrends 2000 bereits in den 80-er Jahren den Wandel zur Informationsgesellschaft vorwegnahm. Der Aufstieg eines zukunftsfähigen Kapitalismus, den sie in ihrem neuen Buch beschreibt, verspricht weitere fundamentale Veränderungen und immense Gewinnchancen. Verantwortung, Werte und Spiritualität prägen das neue Paradigma, das in den Märkten bereits sichtbar wird. Investmentfonds mit einem Milliardenvolumen, die ethischen Leitlinien folgen, Konsumenten, die gezielt fair produzierte Produkte kaufen, und Führungskräfte und Mitarbeiter, die persönliche Erfüllung und Erfolg verbinden, zeugen von der Ablösung des Shareholder Value-Denkens und dem neuen Zeitalter einer nachhaltigen Wirtschaft. Patricia Aburdene zeigt, wie Unternehmen, Manager und alle, die spüren, dass es Zeit ist zu handeln, diese Entwicklung mitgestalten und von ihr profitieren können
