Thea Polancic is a passionate advocate for the power of business as a force for good in the world. She is the Founder and Chair of the Chicago Chapter of Conscious Capitalism, Inc., the first chapter in North America with almost 1100 active participants.

Under Thea's leadership, the Chicago Chapter produces programs for the general public and private events for senior executives who are committed to leading organizations that are both purposeful and unapologetically profit-driven.

Thea is also the Managing Partner of ClearSpace, LLC, a Chicago-based consulting firm that helps CEOs transform themselves, their teams and organizations to meet the challenges of the future and grow and thrive. Over the past 15 years, Thea has worked closely with many senior leadership teams to align their organizations with the principles of Conscious Capitalism: having a higher purpose, creating value for all stakeholders, developing servant leaders, and having healthy, values-based cultures. Her firm’s clients include AllState, The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, The Museum of Contemporary Art, NiSource, SP+ and WTTW.

Passionate, articulate, and engaging, Thea is a published author and sought-after speaker on leadership, organizational effectiveness and business strategy.  In this interview, she shares what is conscious capitalism, why purpose and profit are both essential in business and how they work together, and how to instill the 4 key principles of conscious capitalism into every aspect of your organization. 

Thea also shares the 3 steps to starting your own movement and how to enroll others into your mission.  She recently wrote a blog post called the "3 I's of Getting Things Done" which expands on these 3 steps.  You can find it on her LinkedIn page at:
