Conscious Leaders and Leadership



One of the hallmarks of a conscious business is that it is led by conscious leaders. As we mentioned on a recent coaching call, conscious leaders are not the “in your face” tyrants that are so common in many businesses these days. Typically, that comes from those who have watched the movie Patton but never actually wore the uniform.

The conscious leader is more like a wise mentor or coach. They practice the art of servant leadership. They are dedicated to the organization’s higher purpose and aligned on the core values. They are typically humble and self-effacing. They understand that they are part of something much bigger than themselves and are grateful to be a part of it.

This is one of the “secrets” of the best companies on the planet. They see that leadership is key. They know that no one is any better than anyone else (although some may have more responsibility).
