About

The conscious business evolution has begun.

ABOUT

Conscious Leadership Dialogues

Join us for breakfast and a panel discussion that examines Conscious Leadership in organisations.

Conscious Companies assembles some of the finest minds of the nation to unravel conscious leadership in action or the lack thereof in the Conscious Companies Leadership dialogue breakfast hosted quarterly.

A national conversation to cultivate an intuitive guidance to conscious leadership gains momentum in a panel discussion of highly influential leaders.

Contact us to find out more about the Conscious Companies Dialogues.

WHY?

Why do we
need Conscious Companies?

Conscious awareness, governance and ethics in business has never been more urgent or consequential as it is today.

Enough is enough!

Enough with the rhetoric and inspirational quotes.
Enough with the empty promises, captivating mission and vision statements. Enough with the gaping chasm between what leaders and organisations say and do.

When plunder and looting become the rule of law then we need a dramatic shift in consciousness, reason, justice, integrity and ethics. We also need to seek alliances between people and profit, reason and consciousness, integrity and effort.

For a nation to flourish companies must participate and evolve to become conscious and adopt a spirit of co-operative partnership, address societal imbalances, increase productivity and efficiency, maintain transparency, accountability and governance. It is imperative that they strive to become a Conscious Company.

What is a Conscious Company?

A Conscious Company is lead by a courageous and visionary leader who is deeply aware of his actions and the impact he has on all of his stakeholders.

“Your profession is not what brings home your pay check. Your profession is what you were put on earth to do with such passion and intensity that it becomes a spiritual calling.” – Vincent Van Gogh

A Conscious Company is a transformational organisation. Its dominant ethos is:

  • Authenticity – creates a brand and operating culture that is steeped in integrity
  • Purpose – keeps its sights on a higher purpose that transcends the bottom line
  • Stakeholder Engagement – is always conscious of the needs of all stakeholders including equity owners, staff, customers and communities
  • Visionary Leadership – is run by a conscious leader and fosters future visionary leaders
  • Trust, Accountability, Ethics and Governance – maintains the principles of a moral code
  • Creativity & Innovation – is progressive in its outlook, driving disruption and new methodologies
  • Responsible Citizen – always recognises and exceeds its obligation in the communities it operates in effecting social impact
