I recently had the opportunity to share the message of Truly Human Leadership at Conscious Capitalism 2015 in Chicago. The sold out event showcased the growing commitment and awareness of the four tenets and principles described in Whole Foods CEO John Mackey and Raj Sisodia’s book Conscious Capitalism: higher purpose, stakeholder integration, conscious leadership and conscious culture and management. Their values closely align with what we believe and practice at Barry-Wehmiller. In short, both organizations believe that business can be one of the most positive forces of good in the world.

Since the publishing of their book, Conscious Capitalism has become a worldwide organization with many local chapters dedicated to spreading that message. I was honored to be one of the keynote speakers at their Chicago conference, along with a number of other friends of Barry-Wehmiller who are on this journey with us. Here are some thoughts and images from the event:

And judging by the other truly human leaders who shared during the conference, we are part of a much bigger army who have the same desires and passions as we do. We can change the world.
