This week, I’m thrilled to bring a conversation with Ursula Jorch about Conscious Leadership; a term made popular when John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, published his book, Conscious Capitalism.
Conscious leadership; however, has been around much longer as a dream state and vision of leaders, and I believe is at the heart of the massive shift we’ve seen towards entrepreneurial start-ups and organizational focus on employee engagement.
In this episode, Ursula shares tips and wisdom on:
- How to design a strategy that honors who you are and the impact you most want to have.
- How to bring vulnerability and authenticity into your business world.
- How the practice of loving kindness is actually the act of fierceness and strength.
- How to create both profit and impact
Ursula Jorch owns Work Alchemy, and she works at the intersection of capitalism, consciousness, and social and environmental impact. As a business coach and consultant, Ursula’s focus with her clients is on how to make smart and strategic decisions, while tending to individual and group dynamics.
