Conscious Capitalism Dallas serves as a resource and community of practice for leaders on their purpose-driven journeys to elevate business.
Who We Are
The Dallas Chapter of Conscious Capitalism (CC Dallas) is a collection of like-minded and curious individuals who want more from our work than just a paycheck. We range from C-level executives to mid-level managers to young professionals building a career foundation. Our community has attracted entrepreneurs, innovators, high-achievers and trailblazers. And we gather in a relaxed atmosphere where suits are rare and friendliness is abundant. We invite you to come and see if Conscious Capitalism is right for you
What We're About
Like the national organization, the CC Dallas Chapter was formed to elevate and broaden the traditional way businesses operate. Conscious Capitalism is built on the belief that the foundations of capitalism – voluntary exchange, entrepreneurship, competition, freedom to trade and the rule of law – can also support the attributes of purpose-driven organizations – trust, compassion, collaboration and value creation.
The Four Tenets of Conscious Capitalism
Recognizing that every business has a purpose that includes, but is more than, making money. By focusing on its Higher Purpose, a business inspires, engages and energizes its stakeholders.
Recognizing that the interdependent nature of life and the human foundations of business, a business needs to create value with and for its various stakeholders (customers, employees, vendors, investors, communities, etc.). Like the life forms in an ecosystem, healthy stakeholders lead to a healthy business system.
Human social organizations are created and guided by leaders – people who see a path and inspire others to travel along the path. Conscious Leaders understand and embrace the Higher Purpose of business and focus on creating value for and harmonizing the interests of the business stakeholders. They recognize the integral role of culture and purposefully cultivate Conscious Culture.
This is the ethos – the values, principles, practices – underlying the social fabric of a business, which permeates the atmosphere of a business and connects the stakeholders to each other and to the purpose, people and processes that comprise the company.
