Get to know the CLA

Our Mission

The mission of the Conscious Leadership Academy (CLA) is to improve the understanding and practice of leadership by integrating advanced leadership theory with applied leadership practice. With a strong commitment to leadership that promotes social change for the common good, the CLA strives to develop conscious leaders who are prepared to meet the complex challenges they face in their communities, their social circles, and in today’s global organizations.

Our Work

The Conscious Leadership Academy helps people create and activate new possibilities for effective action. Our programs develop self-awareness, personal clarity, and the ability to understand and integrate individual, group and community perspectives. We develop effective leaders who can create innovative solutions to social and organizational challenges.

Our Foundation

The CLA bridges the gap between academic leadership theory and applied leadership practice. Our programs and methods are informed by the latest research and our foundation rests on the following theories:

  • Adaptive leadership theory – We help leaders recognize the deeper issues within the challenges they face.
  • Integral theory – We take a holistic approach to understanding the self and the larger systems that impact how we live and lead.
  • Group dynamics – We examine the behaviors and processes that impact and influence social groups and identify methods for leaders to mobilize, inspire and guide others toward purpose.

Who We Are

We are a team of scholars, leadership practitioners and students who work together inspiring both advanced leadership thought and relevant, useful action. We are a team committed to finding a new way to lead, as we recognize that the deepest problems facing us today can only be solved at the level of human development and a more complete spirit.

We invite you to learn more about the Conscious Leadership Academy and join us in the efforts to create a leadership practice that is more meaningful, more impactful and leave the world a better place as a result.
