The blurb from the back of the book!

The issue at the heart of all that is wrong with business are organisations with a mission to maximise profit that supersedes all other considerations. I believe businesses should never have a mission that is simply “to make as much money as possible!” That’s pure greed! And greed is what turns capitalism bad! It’s what causes the sub prime mortgage market to collapse. It’s what drives Bernie Madoff to steal. It’s what causes thousands of job losses at Enron.

Greed is NOT Good, Mr Gekko!

Instead, let’s build businesses with inspiring missions and laudable core values that we’re not afraid to express to our customers. Let’s build businesses that are about more than just money. Let’s build Communities Of Work (COWs) on a Mission. This book shows you how to build your missional business and set about changing the world.

“A must for all  budding entrepreneurs.”
“Find out how to make a business more enriching.”
“This volume stands out as a beacon in support of a different way of doing business.”


An Adventure in Building a New Kind of Business

In COW on a mission Ben defined how to build a business culture where people thrive. The new book shows those ideas in action!

About the book!

Imagine a place where you do you very best work. Where you enjoy working and are encouraged and built up by your colleagues. Imagine a place where your boss genuinely has your back and wants the best for you. Imagine a place of openness and vulnerability, free from politics and gossip. Imagine “Cogiva: An adventure in building a new kind of business!

This new book is a company manifesto and explains the culture at Cogiva – the mission, vision and values; the expectations and freedoms – our view of how we intend to do business. It’s a book we give to all our new starters and defines what it means to be Cogiva!
