2017 Cause Conference
Over 400 attendees embarked on a journey to maximize impacts through the power of purpose. Collectively, purpose-minded marketers, nonprofit leaders, business executives, and social entrepreneurs learned and shared ideas and strategies for solving big problems with purpose-driven solutions—all in the name of maximized impact and revenue!
This workshop showed how the principles underlying Enlightened Negotiation can be honored and supported through conscious attention to how our corporate operational documents and contracts can establish enduring systems and structures that support and sustain conscious values and intentions even when visionary founders have moved on.

Conscious Leadership as a Servant Leader with Ken Blanchard
On November 15, 2016, CCSD hosted Ken Blanchard. We learned how to apply the concepts of Servant Leadership as one way to bring the philosophy of Conscious Capitalism to life — elevating humanity through business. It was such an honor to listen to Ken share his experience as well as the opportunity to ask him some thoughtful questions. It was a perfect way to end 2016 for CCSD and our community.
The second in a series of webinars hosted by Conscious Capitalism Southwest Chapters took place on August 31, 2016.

The webinar recording will be available for free soon. (We do not have access to webinar recording just yet. I will let you know when we do).
Kip shared insights into the Conscious Capitalism Movement through the lens of his integral role in building Container Store. He also focused on how The Container Store brings Stakeholder Orientation to life; including how to become more effective leaders and create a company that significantly increases the alignment, engagement, effectiveness and happiness levels for all stakeholders.

Wonderful memory of last week’s CCSD event, on April 20, 2016, Shakti Leadership. Thanks again to Nilima Bhat for sharing her story and purpose to create a new, more resilient leadership. Embracing both your masculine and feminine (and knowing when to pull from one or the other), can be a powerful business and life tool.
On March 21st, co-founder of Conscious Capitalism, Raj Sisodia, PhD was the featured speaker and he was joined by a panel of distinguished leaders in conscious business. It was a rare and exciting chance for us to share the ins and outs of the conscious approach to business — according to Raj “an entirely new superstructure for business and its reason for existing.
On February 18th, CCSD held a networking reception bringing together conscious professionals, exploring first-hand how building a business around conscious, higher purpose ideals can bring rapid and significant business growth and greatly impact company culture, community and business stakeholders. Presentation given by Mark Tomaszewicz, PIRCH Ambassador of Joy, at the inspiring PIRCH headquarters.
On January 19th, CCSD had its first event of the year by leading a half-day workshop meant to guide leaders in assessing how their organization scores against all facets of Conscious Capitalism.
