What is Steps to Conscious Business?

It is a 12-module programme designed to help people in business gain perspective on events around them as the action unfolds.

Understanding the direction of underlying currents and relationships is essential to being ahead of the curve and in the lead rather than following trends in the marketplace. The purpose of business is to achieve goals and when objectives are met easily we have little to offer but congratulations. However, when missed goals, power-struggles, or a blame and fear culture develop, and become blocks to success, it is the intention of this programme to give business people tools to overcome these obstacles.

We all know that good relationships are essential to happiness; however, do you know that good relationships are also essential for success in business? The underlying theme that runs through the 12 modules of Steps to Conscious Business is understanding the dynamics and importance of relationships. We demonstrate how bonded and co-operative teams result in ease, effectiveness and efficiency in the workplace. The programme illustrates that foundation building for better relationships, team building, leadership and vision provide the edge needed for success.

I gained a greater feeling of empowerment by looking to myself first to see how I can make a change rather than waiting for someone else to make that change.

Steps to Conscious Business will challenge some of your belief systems through a process of demonstrating how our conscious, subconscious and unconscious minds communicate. Our individual willingness to let go of old beliefs and thought patterns that no longer serve us as individuals and in the workplace will result in significant shifts in our businesses. Change is essential in the modern business environment considering the speed that the world is evolving. Managing that change in a positive way depends on our ability to manage ourselves; that will be the cornerstone of our success. This programme is about real and lasting change for you the individual and the company or organisation as a whole.

A refreshing balance to more rule driven management courses.

Reviews about the programme

These are truly transformational programmes. Over the years I have attended many so-called “leadership” courses, none of which have focussed on relationships and the way in which we interact with and relate to others around us. These are tools that work in the real world. JP

Very useful in changing the approach to situations, attitudes and personalities. Realising the effects an individual has on others. FC

I’ve learned to communicate more with other members of staff in project teams. EF

We all do matter and are important to factors in the way the company develops and what we as individuals have say, do, feel and work effects everyone. I can start believing in myself. JB

A fresh perspective on how to handle life issues such as stress, dilemmas, stagnation. SP
