Conscious Leaders shape Conscious Companies


 The search has begun for nominations for the 2018 Conscious Companies Awards, in partnership with ClassicFM. Nominations have already opened for the awards which celebrate visionary leaders and organisations who heed the call to create a conscious business environment.

What sets a Conscious Company apart is that it functions with purpose to create financial, intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, cultural, physical and ecological wealth for both its internal and external stakeholders.

Corporate behaviour and culture takes its cue from its leadership and the leaders who ask themselves fundamental questions such as – why does this business exist, how can we create more value for all of our stakeholders, how can we create a workplace of meaning, productivity and joy, how can we transform and uplift society and how can we serve? These are the conscious leaders of today.

Brenda Kali, CEO of Conscious Companies SA and author of “Beyond Corporate Sludge: Insights to create balance and harmony in the workplace” explains: “Consciousness has a purpose in business and government in that it defines the leadership, operating culture and value creation of an organisation as a reason for its existence far beyond the bottom line”

“ClassicFM is excited to be part of the Conscious Companies initiative in honouring and nurturing a new brand of business leaders in South Africa,” says ClassicFM CEO, Lyndon Johnstone.

The awards ceremony will be held in Johannesburg on May 17, 2018.
