The Conscious Leaders Group exists to create an economy of opportunity and prosperity in which all stakeholders thrive.
Conscious Capitalism® Credo
“We believe that business is good because it creates value, it is ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange, it is noble because it can elevate our existence, and it is heroic because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity. Free enterprise capitalism is the most powerful system for social cooperation and human progress ever conceived. It is one of the most compelling ideas we humans have ever had.”

“To Lincoln’s mind, the fundamental test of a democracy was its capacity to ‘elevate the condition of men, to lift artificial weights from all shoulders, to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all.’” (Abraham Lincoln, “Message to Congress in Special Session,” July 4, 1861, from The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, IV, p. 438, as quoted in Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, by Doris Kearns Goodwin, p. 90.)
At The Conscious Leaders Group™ (CLG), we believe that a capitalist system of economics is essential to Lincoln’s vision. However, capitalism cannot, if it is to serve democracy in the manner envisioned by Lincoln, be limited to the few; it must of necessity be based on principles that are applied in order to “elevate the condition of [ALL], to lift artificial weights from ALL shoulders, to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for ALL.”
