The Conscious Companist panelists and the roles of leaders over time
PROFESSOR Mevyn King spoke yesterday at a national conversation on conscious leadership examining the growing consciousness and roles of leaders over time. He said: “Directors are the heart, mind and soul of the company. Directors create a conscience. And if directors don’t act correctly you are not going to have a conscious company... I’ve chaired many companies in the UK, Europe, and here, and I know as soon as directors forget that they are duty bound to act for an incapacitated person, and animate that person, they start forgetting duties as a director of good faith and diligence.” King says a conscious company is a very critical thing in society. “Evidence of that was when Lehman Brothers collapsed it was adverse to billions of people in society,” he said. Brenda Kali, the chief executive of Conscious Companies and author of Beyond Corporate
