Special recognition goes to the core group of community leaders that came together originally to explore a certification program with CCI. The result of that effort was agreement that the first priority was to teach people how to fish. The outcome was the Activator, a “getting started” tool to guide the community in understanding how to put these ideas into action right away, regardless of previous exposure to, or awareness of, the 4 tenets of Conscious Capitalism.
Much appreciation goes to these amazing community leaders who served as great thought activators for this project.
