Conscious Business

The business world is changing. . . . .

It must because the future continues to unfold with the accelerating complexity and velocity of an interconnected world.

As a result, all those involved–customers, employees, vendors, suppliers, and yes, the community and environment too–are calling for new ways of working together, or doing business.

A way of doing business that’s increasingly transparent, authentic, grounded in solid ethics and care.

A way of doing business where profits are based in purpose.

A way of doing business where people are engaged and trusted, where they create value via their to best contribution.

As the boundaries between our work and personal life have continued to thin, this philosophy—Conscious Business

–provides for new possibilities, for innovation, for greater community.

You see, qualities like authenticity, care, and transparency, are human qualities that evoke and build trust amongst people, and also build trust in the workplace.

And, trust can be cultivated, and pragmatically trained. Trust can expand right along with profits and the greater good.

Voluntary exchange, entrepreneurship, competition, freedom to trade and the rule of law are all essential to a healthy functioning economy. So are trust, compassion, collaboration and value creation.

The four pillars of Conscious Capitalism: Purpose, Conscious Leadership, Conscious Culture, and Stakeholder Orientation are intertwined, creating a foundation for businesses that aspire to practice new ways of doing business.

Within the organization we now have a common culture and identity which was not the case previously. We know that together we can do more and better. We have now a commitment based culture that will help us to take actions to support and develop our business and improve our efficiency.   Personally I’ve realized the importance of mood management to lead a team. Mood really is everything. Olivier Laborie

Working with Chris, I began to appreciate that my capacity to lead and transform my organization could only increase through others. At first “mindfulness” sounded to me like squishy overused synonym for group hugs and undisciplined leadership. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I’m very thankful that I was open-minded enough to listen, read and learn about the science behind Chris’s Core Presence Coaching™ process, based in mindfulness practices. By acknowledging and appreciating the need to connect with others, and practicing mindful awareness, I was able to engage more deliberately with co-workers and lead in the organization.

Your first and foremost job as a leader is to take charge of your own energy, and then to orchestrate the energy of those around you.
