At MAC6, our Leadership Academy for High Performing Teams is based on the premise that “Conscious Leadership” is the crux of what will make businesses more successful and benefit all stakeholders in the long term.   Over the last five years, our greatest learning in working with early stage to mid-market businesses, is that ALWAYS, what makes a business successful is a strong leadership team.  Conversely, when businesses struggle, we can point to a struggling leadership team. Because of this, in the last year and a half we have pared down our service offerings to work exclusively on team leadership development.  It has been incredibly rewarding work to see the success of people who, when given the opportunity to sit in the right seat and do what they love, thrive, creating great company culture and commensurate financial success for the business as a whole.

The following white paper, written by Barrett C. Brown, Ph.D., of MetaIntegral Associates, titled, “The Future of Leadership for Conscious Capitalism” is the foundation of thought from which we built our programs.  We encourage you to read it and develop as a leader for the long term success of your team, business, and all involved stakeholders.
