Conscious Capitalism© is a philosophy based on the belief that a more complex form of capitalism is emerging that holds the potential for enhancing corporate performance while simultaneously continuing to advance the quality of life for billions of people.
Conscious Capitalism builds on the foundations of Capitalism - voluntary exchange, entrepreneurship, competition, freedom to trade and the rule of law. These are essential to a healthy functioning economy, as are other elements of Conscious Capitalism including trust, compassion, collaboration and value creation.

- The Healing Organization
We live in a world of extraordinary pain and suffering. Public confidence in major corporations is at an all-time low. Why? Too many businesses exploit their people and harm their communities for short-term profit. If we are not consciously part of the healing, we are probably part of the hurting. But it doesn't have to be this way. Based on his most recent book, The Healing Organization: Awakening the Conscience of Business to Help Save the World, Raj Sisodia makes the case that business can become the primary agent for healing society. This is not about healing businesses; it is about business as healing. Business can take wounded people, broken communities and damaged ecosystems and make them whole again – and businesses that operate in this way will be more successful and profitable over time. Sisodia shares stories and case studies of such businesses and extracts lessons that can put any company on the path to becoming a healing organization.
- Becoming a “Firm of Endearment”
Drawing upon his best-selling books, Firms of Endearment and Conscious Capitalism, Raj Sisodia outlines how world-class companies can profit from passion and purpose—becoming endearing and enduring organizations. From Costco to Commerce Bank, Wegman’s to Whole Foods, these firms are generating every form of value that matters, not because it’s “politically correct,” but because it’s the only path toward long-term competitive advantage. No matter what your industry, you’ll learn how your organization can shed the old, narrow, instrumental view of business and implement a more expansive and deeply fulfilling version of what business can and should be.

- Reimagining Capitalism with Higher Consciousness
To reimagine America, we must reimagine capitalism. Capitalism has been extraordinarily successful over the past two centuries at raising human living standards, life expectancy and life satisfaction. But the old way is not working any more.
