106th Summit

Cultivating Conscious Leadership Cultures

July 9-12, 2024 remote and in-person at Montclair State University

How do conscious leadership cultures impact wellbeing,

engagement, purpose, relationships, innovation, results, and more?

The LFC’s 2024, its 106th year, summit will focus on Cultivating Conscious Leadership Cultures. We want to build on what we have learned about Conscious Leadership. We want to learn what conscious leadership cultures look like, feel like, and the impact they have. Ultimately, we believe a rubric could be created that can help leaders, organizations, and communities grow into and sustain their culture to be a more conscious and impactful one.

Join us at the 2024 Leadership Forum Summit on July 9-12 online or in-person at Montclair State University, New Jersey.

Together we will explore and synthesize the transformative power of conscious leadership cultures. You will have an opportunity to:


  • Engage with local and global provocateurs as they share stories, innovations, research, and best practices.
  • Connect with a committed conscious leadership community.
  • Obtain a number of conscious leadership tools, resources, and practices to enhance your personal leadership journey and/or to implement in your organizations and communities.

Join us at the 2024 Leadership Forum Summit on July 9-12 online or

in-person at Montclair State University, New Jersey.

How to Join

Be a Participant
We encourage participants to step away from their daily life and engage in some wonderful work on the future of leadership outside of the conventional workplace setting. The goal is for individuals to take what they learn and utilize it to enhance their personal leadership journey and/or bring ideas back to their organizations, communities, and society. To be a participant, complete the registration form.

Be a Virtual Hub Host
We encourage smaller groups of at least four individuals to gather in one place and attend the Summit together. The leader of this group, or the Hub Host, will be granted free registration to the Summit as a way to compensate for providing others with the space to gather. Whether it is a group of colleagues, classmates, or friends – this is the best way to attend the summit virtually, but still benefit from in-person discussions. To be a virtual hub host or participant, complete the registration form. You will be required to provide the name of your organization or your virtual hub host.

Be a Sponsor
We encourage individuals or corporations to be a sponsor allowing us to further enhance the quality and experience of the Summit to all. Different sponsorship options are available each with its own benefits for the sponsor. See Sponsorship Packages below.
