CEOs are the lynchpins in change

There’s one thing we know for sure – behind successful companies and great places to work – there is a leader at the top who is a pretty special person. The CEO is in a position to leverage his or her company’s efforts for good in the world to affect the lives of all stakeholders. At the same time, we know it’s not an easy job. Our friend Rand Stagen has said, “leaders get the organizations they deserve.” Conscious CEOs view their organizations as mirrors of their own strengths and weaknesses. They understand that culture – just like performance – isn’t something they can delegate.

No matter how talented and well-intended the efforts of other leaders in the organization are, ultimately the company won’t be able to rise beyond the awareness, abilities and limitations of the CEO. Our executive programs are designed to offer opportunities for you to learn and grow with other peers, share challenges and continue to push the envelope as you lead your organization into the future.

As a part of executive membership, we host quarterly breakfasts, periodic Conscious Capitalism@Work field trips to member facilities, and free attendance at regular programming on our events page. However, what we hear most is that it’s the relationships with each other that are the most meaningful.

For years, I was running my business with an eye toward our larger purpose and working to address the cultural and emotional needs of our employees. This can be a rewarding, but sometimes lonely path. I had no idea that there was a community of other leaders dedicated to these ideas, so when I found out about Conscious Capitalism and that there was a chapter in Chicago, I was delighted to find a group of peers who speak the same language
