Overview

OUR WHY:
We are creating a coalition of awakened conscious leaders to facilitate healing, growth and wellness at this historic time of need and opportunity.

OUR WHAT:
The coalition is composed of individuals and organizations who are engaged in developing the skills and practices of conscious leadership and have the influence to facilitate this transformation within themselves, their communities and the world at large.

OUR HOW:
We will convene leading influencers and organizations online and in person to do this purposeful work together!

OUR CONTEXT:
This initiative aligns with the purpose and practices of Conscious Capitalism and the XCHANGE Approach, which are to elevate humanity through Conscious Leadership. It’s led by Daniel Friedland, MD, CEO of SuperSmartHealth, co-creator of Wellness Evidence and, author of Leading Well from Within: A Neuroscience and Mindfulness-Based Framework for Conscious Leadership. On November 12, 2020, “Dr. Danny” as he is affectionately known by many, was diagnosed with “terminal” brain cancer (Grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme). His diagnosis catalyzed a new level of growth and awakening around his work in Conscious Leadership and a wish to serve more deeply with whatever time he has remaining. This led him and his family to create the YouTube channel Living Well from Within in which they are sharing their transformational learning lessons to facilitate healing, growth and wellness flourishing to serve all who are facing their own challenges at this time too. On December 7, 2020, in a meeting with Susie Ellis, Nancy Davis, Sallie Fraenkel and Wendy Bosalavage, Danny shared the vision for Living Well from Within. Susie extended an invitation to house this vision as an Initiative within the GWI, providing us with this blessed forum for convening a coalition of awakened conscious leaders who can facilitate healing, growth and flourishing wellness to elevate humanity globally.
