Established Entrepreneurs

Engage Your Customers and Employees, Increase Business Performance AND Create A Positive Impact for Our Planet!

Sound impossible?

Ask yourself the following.

What would transform your world for the better?

  • More meaningful, impactful work that’s in alignment with your values, your talents AND your vision for your life?
  • Retaining your employees by creating alignment AND meaning for them?
  • Reinventing business practices which no longer work as well as they used to AND engaging your employees in the process?
  • Feeling confident about the viability of your business AND easily handling changing expectations, values, technology and other socioeconomic factors?
  • Knowing you are making a difference AND leaving our planet in better shape than you inherited it?
  • Creating a different workplace – one where employees are happy, productive, collaborative AND inspired?

As an established entrepreneur who has built your business over the years, hired your first, second, then fifth and more employee and celebrated your first million and your second million dollars in annual sales, you have know what it takes to succeed in business – or at least what worked in the past (note: if you haven’t yet reached these milestones, you’ll be better served over here.)

Your organization culture was formed as you grew and it is now being influenced by each additional employee and all decisions which are made daily. Is it the culture you intended? Is it a culture that will help you thrive in the future?

Your policies, procedures and processes helped you scale so far. Will it help you scale to the next big milestone – especially given changing expectations and technology?

Enlightened Capitalist Guild

The Enlightened Capitalist Guild helps you make wise decisions while you become a more Enlightened Capitalist.  The Guild focuses on you, the individual, and what you need to grow professionally.  There are 3 main components to the Guild –  Education, Mentors and Projects.  The Enlightened Capitalist Guild supports the Enlightened Capitalist Academy and the Academy supports the Guild, which means that your mentors will be Enlightened Capitalists who are part of the Academy.  The projects — which can be projects posted by Academy members or projects you propose which get sponsored by an Academy member — give you practical experience doing meaningful work as well as connections to companies which could further your career.  The curriculum is designed to teach you new skills and improve your existing skills so that you are better prepared for the transformation that will occur within business over the next 5 – 10 years.

Enlightened Capitalist Academy:

The Enlightened Capitalist Academy supports the Enlightened Capitalist Guild and the Guild supports the Academy.  The Academy’s focus is on organizations and what organizations need to become better Enlightened Capitalists.  The Academy provides education as well as opportunities to mentor Guild members and sponsor projects that the Guild members complete to gain practical experience.  While in the Academy we encourage you to take advantage of the courses and education designed to help you become a better Enlightened Capitalist.  We also encourage you to connect with Guild members who are looking for a mentor and we’ll help you to not only be a great mentor but to also get the most value from your experience.   And as a sponsor of a Guild project, you can benefit from the skills, enthusiasm and drive of the Guild members.

Enlightened Capitalist Events:

Throughout the year we will be hosting events that encourage collaboration, co-creation, personal development and professional development.  Our events are unconventional because we our goal is to have you leave with at least one new connection, concept or practice which will transform your life.  Our annual get together is aptly called the UNConvention-AL because we take the best of the best practices of other events (we call these our wise practices) and mix them with what we teach.  You won’t want to miss it!

Enlightened Capitalist can help.

How much time and energy is being wasted as your organization focuses on:

misaligned Projects that are misaligned with your organization’s mission, vision, purpose and values
search Sourcing new business instead of nurturing existing relationships
reward Promoting undeserving people and rewarding questionable behavior
no-entry Restricting innovation or punishing failure
historical-document Sticking with "we've always done it that way" policies and procedures

These problems arise because of a restricted, exclusive focus. With an inclusive focus, you get better results.
In other words, it’s not a case of “either/or”…

It’s about finding the AND

Does this sound familiar?

  • Are your Corporate Social Responsibility programs producing desired results?
  • Are you contemplating adding a “Why” or a “Shared Higher Purpose” to your business strategy because it’s the “in thing”?
  • Are you having difficulties integrating shifting cultural values and expectations into your business?
  • Does it seem you can never do enough to exceed performance objectives and is productivity a challenge?
  • Are you concerned about disruptions to your industry and business?

Did you answer “yes” to any of these questions?  You’re not alone.

Here’s why you want “AND”

  • You want more profitable business AND affect useful outcomes for planet and communities.
  • You would like to be known for the lives you transform, the positive environmental impact you create AND the community benefits you deliver.
  • You want to map out a response to these challenges AND receive support to overcome resistance while reinventing your business.
  • You want to tear up the old-school manuals AND create a profitable, desirable, attractive and high-performing business.
  • You want to create progressive ripples for employees, customers, supporters, vendors, investors communities AND for our planet.  

It is possible AND it starts with YOU.
