A Conscious Company
Lead with purpose.
Live your values. That’s our philosophy and that’s why Marketwave CEO, Tina Young, is a founding member of the Dallas Chapter of Conscious Capitalism, a community of like-minded leaders in support of the national business movement that was built on four tenets: 1.) purpose, 2.) culture, 3.) leadership and 4.) the stakeholder integration model.
Conscious companies are purpose-driven in the sense of knowing not just what they do to add value to the market, but why they do it – a higher purpose that drives them and inspires them to excellence. These companies have a culture of caring and accountability, and are laser-focused on making a positive impact on all stakeholders. The conscious capitalism movement was started by Whole Foods co-CEO, John Mackey along with academic and business author, Raj Sisodia, who co-authored the book by the same name in 2013.

The company we keep
Conscious capitalism is embraced by business leaders such as Kip Tindell, CEO of The Container Store; Bob Jordan, COO of Southwest Airlines; and Scott Miller, CEO of Interstate Batteries. It’s also embraced by many small- to mid-size businesses that have recognized a better way to grow business and create thriving cultures. Across the U.S. and now in parts of Europe and Asia, this movement is spreading as companies experience the long-term benefits of operating with these core tenets in mind. A key thing conscious companies do is build cultures based on shared values. And, Marketwave has done just that.
