A transformational learning journey for CEOs, designed and led by Raj Sisodia, Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of Conscious Capitalism, Inc., and Neha Sangwan, MD, in partnership with BDO USA, LLP.
Building a powerful, successful and enduring business starts with a compelling purpose and vision.
Nothing is more dangerous to a business, to our shared future, and to the planet than “business as usual”. Globally, organizations must evolve toward a broader definition of success that encompasses people, purpose and performance in harmony. The Conscious Business Leadership Academy is an opportunity for CXOs to deepen their vision, connect with their purpose, and become more conscious. It’s a time to reflect on their leadership team, corporate culture, and business practices.
Over the course of five months, you will learn how to maximize your personal potential while optimizing value and benefits for your stakeholders. In discovering and defining your personal higher purpose, you will be able to more fully align the purpose and profitability of your business, with a deep commitment to building a sustainable and brighter future for all.
Helping all stakeholders thrive. Everybody matters. Everybody wins.
“Conscious Business Leadership Academy is an extraordinary give back to the business world.”
JAYNE MILLARD, CEO, Turtle & Hughes and CBLA Graduate

Transitioning from Extracting and Leveraging to Value-Creation and Service
The goal of this program is to inspire you to transform your own leadership and your company. It will elevate your perspective so that you can achieve deeper integration between your personal values, life purpose and your journey as a leader. The program will connect you with a community of your peers who are also on a path of continuous learning and growth, seeking to align their companies more closely with the conscious business philosophy.
"As leaders, we have a responsibility to ensure that we are creating environments that foster growth while at the same time being empathic, inclusive and mindful about our path to success. Each decision we make is incredibly consequential to our people as well as our clients, communities and networks. Acting mindfully requires a dramatic shift in thinking to grasp the full reach and impact of our actions. It’s a journey best taken with peers who can offer support and encouragement as we navigate an ever-evolving landscape of questions, opportunities and challenges. We hope you’ll join us."

Capitalism is at a crossroads. We are living in an era of unprecedented change and disruption. The impact of technology on society and business. The acceleration and consequences of climate change. The persistent and urgent reckoning around social injustice. The rise of globalization and the vulnerabilities this interconnectedness brings. The meteoric rise of wealth but also wealth inequality. These historic challenges require a historic response by both the public and private sectors.
While doing well by doing good has long been a part of the business lexicon, a transformational shift in mindset is needed to address the titanic shifts we are grappling with today. Business leaders play a vital role creating cultures and operational models that are mindful of these challenges and deliver value for all stakeholders. Our path forward must reflect changes in our foundational thinking about the ways our businesses operate and the impact - intentional and unintentional - of our business actions on people, society and the world.
Critically, this thinking must be personal. Decisions on corporate culture, purpose and values that drive operational decision making reflect and align with the personal purpose and values of an organization’s leaders. Responsibility starts and stops at the top. To become the type of business that drives value and creates opportunity for all, change must start with each leader and their personal commitment to a conscious way of thinking about capitalism.
