Conscious Leadership Summit

We develop conscious leaders who take full responsibility for the impact of their results.

We develop leaders through our Conscious Leadership Summit. The Summit is a four-day gathering in Denver, Colorado in June. This program equips participants with conscious leadership skills, cultivates design thinking, explores cultural competence, and works to improve communication skills with people of different backgrounds.

In the year following the summit, we offer quarterly gatherings in Denver to refresh, discuss and support one another in living out the commitments of conscious leadership. This collaborative community helps put the lessons from the Summit into action.

The Summit will take place on June 13th – 16th, 2016 at the Posner Center for International Development.

Design thinking

“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.” (Tim Brown, president and CEO of IDEO)

The Harvard Business Review has done an excellent job exploring the different elements of design-centered thinking and how it has been applied to create business solutions in the article, “Design Thinking Comes of Age.”
