On Tuesday, November 24, Robert Doar, head of the American Enterprise Institute think tank, welcomed Whole Foods CEO and ICE Director John Mackey for a conversation on our new book: Conscious Leadership: Elevating Humanity Through Business (Penguin 2020), coauthored by Mackey, McIntosh, and Phipps.
As described in AEI’s summary of the talk: “Mr. Doar and Mr. Mackey analyzed three prevailing mindsets — traditionalist, modernist, and progressive — and how they manifest in society and business.”
Beginning in the YouTube video at 22:15 minutes, John does an excellent job summarizing post-progressive cultural intelligence. And Robert Doar expresses interest in learning more about the subject, which we hope he will.

Polarity #4 is MERCY & JUSTICE. Mercy for the individual becomes unjust without concern for the good of the whole. And to be truly virtuous, justice must be balanced with care for each person.
Polarity #3 is COMPETITION & COOPERATION. One without the other can become problematic. But when both of these are brought together in a mutually correcting relationship that provides for both *challenge and support,* the value-creating potential of each side is maximized.
Polarity #2 is REAL & IDEAL. Each pole needs the other. Realism alone can lead to a cynical acceptance of a dysfunctional status quo. And unrealistic idealism can result in ineffectual wishful thinking. But through mutual co-correction they can fortify our power to improve things
In this new article by Carter Phipps, he asks where 50 years of "I'll do me and you do you" has gotten us.
This tweet is the first in a series of our favorite positive-positive interdependent polarities: LIBERTY & EQUALITY. These two values need each other to maximize their value creating capacity. Through a dynamic relationship of challenge and support, each pole trues-up the other.
