The Academy: We’re on a Mission

Academy for Conscious Leadership Mission Statement

The Academy for Conscious Leadership prepares leaders to lead from a place of service by guiding them through experiences that identify their higher purpose and create cultures of meaning.

To do this, a faculty comprised of Whole Foods Market Team Members, thought leaders and fellow travelers exposes participants to ideas that challenge their perspectives, allowing them to consider a new reality.

In addition to adhering to the tenets of Conscious Capitalism, the Academy embraces the following behaviors:

• We model compassion, empathy and understanding.
• We recognize the value in different kinds of minds.
• We challenge our perceptions.
• We encourage leaders to understand their own reactions, desires, motivations
     as well as those of others.
• We believe in the wholeness of all things and face our shadows along with our light.
• We model humility and recognize that we always have more to learn.
• We are creative in our methods and explore new ideas.
• We practice gratitude.

The world is ready for a new crop of intentional leaders, and through the Academy we will help them to flourish while enriching a vibrant and entrepreneurial culture.
