Conscious Capitalism

Columbia Business School agrees: “…recent scientific research from a range of disciplines such as psychology, neuroscience, and psychotherapy is yielding powerful evidence that success in one’s professional and personal lives is substantially influenced by another dimension of leadership: personal leadership. Personal leadership is our ability to understand and direct our inner environment — our goals and values, our mindsets and emotions, and our positive and destructive drives.” “To be more effective…leaders need to understand how their mindset can stimulate or inhibit their personal development,” says Hitendra Wadhwa, professor of practice and faculty director at Columbia. 

This world of career and leadership is driven by our belief that people are best served when we work to collective purpose, when people leverage their greatest skills and gifts, and when we all work from an advanced level of human consciousness about others and ourselves.
