In the age of ruthless competition and workaholism, leadership styles based on constant micromanaging, strict hierarchies, and top-down communication may seem like the only effective way of managing a team.
The mindset of getting it done (no matter the human cost) may have been left unchallenged in male-dominated industries — but times are changing, and the need for a more empathetic, conscious leadership is more pressing than ever.
The world of business is changing in many ways. Customers and stakeholders are increasingly expecting leaders to implement ethical practices in all their operations, toxic and exploitative workplace environments are being exposed for the world to judge, a commitment to environmental sustainability is rapidly becoming a standard assumption.
This gradual shift in global consciousness calls for a new business model, and the consciousness business model calls for truly forward-thinking leaders to help it succeed.
Driven by a more empathetic, collaborative, and self-aware consciousness, leadership is becoming synonymous with quiet competence and care, rather than cold hard authority.
Of course, the role of a leader is still to lead. Businesses still need hierarchies and specialists to see a project through with efficiency and professionalism. The concept of authority is still valuable to command a sense of security and order — people need someone to look up to and they need someone to come to when problems arise.
The Consciousness Business as a Ticket to Success
So, what are the benefits of incorporating a conscious leadership style into a business model? At the end of the day, knowing how better leadership will affect our daily productivity, communication, and ROI is the most important part of the process — especially when you have to explain your leadership choices to someone else.
The main benefit of running a consciousness business is increased effective communication. Just think of all the misunderstandings you may have encountered when your team doesn’t know how to get their ideas across in a clear, concise way, on top of not knowing how to practice active listening.
Great communication starts at the top, with a leader who has mastered their empathy and listening skills to cultivate a collaborative work environment.
Conscious leaders are able to nurture an atmosphere of creativity, flexible thinking, and purpose-driven work. This is a perfect recipe for happy and motivated employees, satisfied clients, and enthusiastic stakeholders.
You are not just running a business, you are creating a better culture. The results of your self-awareness and influence will manifest in the people around you, creating a chain of positive change for your industry at large.
