About the Conscious Business Institute

The Conscious Business Institute was founded in 2005 by former software entrepreneur and venture capitalist, Peter Matthies. Assessing hundreds of companies, he realized that our world will be confronted with fundamental changes, and that our current leadership models are not designed to meet these challenges. 

So we developed new ones: paradigm-shifting approaches to leadership & business that do not only meet the challenge ahead of us, but enable businesses to actually benefit from these challenges by building highly engaging and inspiring cultures.

Our programs and approaches have impacted global corporations like Siemens, BMW Group, Intel, or Allianz, and we are honored that our clients continue to work with us after they witness the sustainable impact of our approaches.
