Conscious Community Theory of Organizational Function

Life First:  Conscious Community Theory (CCT) was born of a realization that the survival of our natural world depends on the ability of humans to learn and adapt.  Remaining relevant in a dynamic, scientifically driven, information and systems rich, interconnected, and living and breathing world depends mostly on awareness and on agile response.  When our powerful purpose-driven missions, visions, and values lack awareness they can put organizations, their dependents, and the natural world at risk.  The future world will increasingly rely on conscious humans and intelligent information systems to lead from the front lines through new observations, analysis, understandings, and through learning and adapting within an innovative and continually evolving environment.    Conscious Community Theory (CCT) coincides with the emergence of other awareness-driven organizational innovations such as agile project management, benefit corporations, conscious capitalism, cloud strategy, and the rapid rise of business analytics.  Contact us to find out how your organization, your employees and their families, and the shared natural world that we all depend on might benefit from CCT.   

Shareholder Theory
Profits First
Shareholder Theory prioritizes the purpose of maximizing value (profits) to the shareholders of the organization.  It prioritizes the capitalist system, and it envisions the benefits of placing humans in service to the capitalist system and its ideals.   
Stakeholder Theory
People First
Stakeholder Theory prioritizes the purpose of the human stakeholders of the organization.  The needs of many individual people are collected into large, representative stakeholder groups and opposing interests are negotiated at the Board level.  Stakeholder Theory ignores non-stakeholders and non-human stakeholders that are unable to speak for themselves.     
Conscious Community Theory
Life First
Conscious Community Theory seeks a life-supporting balance between organizational awareness and purpose.  It prioritizes the connection between all its living members, and it maintains awareness of all life impacted by the organization.  Conscious Community Theory places all human-created systems, machines, rules, and processes in service to the conscious beings that depend on, and/or are impacted by the organization.
