Jeffrey Deckman

“The most valuable lesson I’ve ever learned as a business leader is human capital is more valuable than financial capital.” – Jeffrey Deckman

In today’s episode, Jeffrey Deckman discusses what it takes to be a conscious leader. In today’s world where the desire to achieve fulfillment is sought after, it becomes vital to honor humanity by establishing authenticity, integrity, and respect in the workforce.

In 2005, Jeffrey Deckman foresaw emergent cultural changes were going to force fundamental and drastic changes to traditional leadership models. That vision manifested in 2020. That vision drove him to prepare for this shift by identifying and defining new leadership mindsets, models, and methods that were in line with a higher level of leadership consciousness he knew as going to be demanded by the new generation of workers. This is where we are now: at the nexus of business and consciousness. Those who recognize and embrace this reality and who educate themselves in the ways of Conscious Leadership will maximize their impact in the new world that is unfolding in front of our very eyes. Welcome to the new age of leadership. Welcome to the world of Conscious Leadership in Action.

Key Quotes: 

“Being an entrepreneur, running a business is one of the strongest spiritual experiences you can ever have.” – Jeffrey Deckman

“I had to decide, what did I value more – my ego at the moment, or what it was that I was looking to build and the responsibilities I had as a leader?”  – Jeffrey Deckman

“An authoritarian leader doesn’t realize how vulnerable they are to the tribe, that ego-based leader. And what happens is, once that tribe turns against you, because you have been inauthentic to them, you’ve set part of the rules that being inauthentic is okay. So now they’re inauthentic with you, and you don’t know it, and it’s a nightmare.” – Jeffrey Deckman
