In April we celebrate Earth Day. April 22 is also my Dad’s birthday, so the birthday-earth day conjunction has always been a strong one for me. As spring begins to make itself felt, it becomes a potent moment to both reflect on and celebrate renewal in many forms. April is also Integrated Work’s birthday—we turn 23 this year and are grateful to still be building on the strong foundation our Founder, Jessica Hartung, established for us by believing it was possible to create a human-first organization dedicated to doing good work in more conscious and humane ways.

The Conscious Professional
Transform Your Life at Work
Forward-thinking professionals of all ages and all levels know that having a mindset of learning helps you to stay relevant, innovative, and creating at the top of your game. So, instead of waiting for others to provide opportunities for professional growth, you can create your own — immediately.
In The Conscious Professional, Integrated Work Founder, Jessica Hartung, outlines the micro-identity shifts that turn work into a learning laboratory—helping to build the leadership capacity needed to solve our workplace’s and the world’s most challenging problems.
Jessica’s unique approach utilizes “real-time leadership development,” using actual work challenges as the case study to grow new levels of leadership. Written for mission-driven leaders at all levels, The Conscious Professional demonstrates how the next great change in work will not be a technological jump or an engagement initiative, but a leap in human mindfulness, self-directed development, and intentional collaboration.
