Russ Volckmann & Jeff Klein - Understanding Conscious Capitalism

This is a preview audio of a discussion that will featured in the October issue of Integral Leadership Review. The ILR is one of the sponsors of The Enlightenment Conference, a 3-week online shin-dig of Big Thinkers and wanna-be big thinkers, mostly from the integral world - or as they bill it, "A Virtual Gathering to Birth a New Conscious Culture." The whole thing is a modest $95.

Please note - I do not necessarily endorse this conference, nor do I get compensation for posting this in any way. However, I do endorse Russ Volckmann. If he says Jeff Klein is an important voice, I believe him, so I'm sharing this here.

Jeff Klein
Russ Volckmann 
It may seem that 'Conscious Capitalism' is a contradiction in terms. But in this dialogue, Russ Volckmann, editor of Integral Leadership Review, gets the low-down from Jeff Klein on what capitalism and business looks like when created from a conscious intention.

Jeff is a businessman and author who has been heavily involved in the Conscious Capitalism movement, and he brings his full weight to bear on this inspiring and integrative new approach to commerce and collaborating.

In this Dialogue Jeff and Russ Discuss...
  • The meaning of "conscious capitalism".
  • The role conscious capitalism plays in the evolution of culture.
  • Four defining elements of a business that is practicing conscious capitalism.
  • The relationship between conscious business and community, and a positive vision for the future.
