Conscious Leadership—New Book by ICE Principals

By Steve McIntosh

Announcing a new book by ICE principals John Mackey, Steve McIntosh, Carter Phipps: Conscious Leadership—Elevating Humanity Through Business. Mackey is CEO of Whole Foods Market, and McIntosh and Phipps are cofounders of the Institute for Cultural Evolution. Together they explore the vision, virtues, and mindset needed for aspiring conscious leaders, providing a roadmap for innovative, value-based leadership in business and society.

It is a well-established truth that an organization’s potential is constrained by the capacities of its leader. One of the best ways to improve an organization is therefore to evolve the personal and professional capacities of those who lead it. This is the mission of Conscious Leadership. The book defines conscious leaders as those who are “driven by service to the organization’s higher purpose, all the people that it touches, and the planet we all share together.” Each chapter includes anecdotes, case studies, profiles of conscious leaders, and innovative techniques for self-development.

Conscious Leadership culminates in an empowering call to action for leaders who can see beyond the bottom line. The book also includes an appendix: “On Cultivating Cultural Intelligence.”

Conscious Leadership is being published on September 15, 2020 by Penguin/Portfolio.
