The book addresses leadership and how to navigate, succeed and make an impact in the world of international business. According to Arakelyan, The Business Caring Formula is written for college students, managers, CEOs, entrepreneurs and individuals who are in leadership positions in the private and public sectors, providing them with the formula to succeed during any stage of life. Arakelyan shares practical advice and challenges you to take steps on your own to “care” being mindful of coworkers, family, friends and the community you live in.

Readers are quickly engaged with thought-provoking questions and prompts: know who you are, know your preferences and your leadership style, learn with care about others, to dream is not an action item it is a daring vision of a future state, challenge the status quo by making exceptions to the rules which aren’t working and making exceptions for progress.

Her approach is grounded to improve operational efficiency and to actualize more innovative business processes. Throughout her career she has been committed to identify, mentor and promote professionals at all levels.

The implementation of caring is eloquently summarized by Gates: The Business Caring Formula” a call to action by Emma Arakelyan confronts the biggest problem eroding our potential everyday: the lack of care in the way we conduct business and interact with each other. As a successful, senior-level executive in various industries, Emma is esteemed around the world for her business acumen and an unparalleled ability to inspire everyone around her to affect progress. She is a testament to true leadership built around a simple principle: propelling progress through the simple application of caring.”
