Conscious Capitalism Florida was launched in Tampa in 2013 to help connect like-minded organizations and grow our community. Conscious Capitalism exists to elevate humanity through business. We believe that business can be a force for good for all stakeholders, become more profitable and create greater opportunities by following the four tenets of conscious capitalism:
- Higher Purpose: 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.
- Stakeholder Orientation: 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.
- Conscious Leadership: 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.
- 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.
Whether you already know about Conscious Capitalism, are interested in elevating humanity through business, or just want to learn more, we invite you to attend our planning session to RELAUNCH the Conscious Capitalism Florida Chapter. We want to know your ideas, your feedback and how a Tampa-based Conscious Capitalism Chapter can best serve this community.
