What We Value
We are human, first and foremost. To be human, you need space, laughter, boundaries, humility, and connection. We incorporate our humanity into our work with clients.
We question the norm and build a new way. We know that we can’t build new systems using the same thinking. We are aware of the trap of binary thinking.
We are curious by nature and love learning. We value many perspectives and know there are many sides to the story. We look for the lessons in the mistakes and always see potential in every situation.
We build courage to say what needs to be said. We respect our own and others boundaries and always speak our truth.
We honor our commitments and are flexible to change when circumstances shift. We only commit when we’re sure. We do what we say, and we say what we mean.
We seek joy in everything we do. Changing the world is a joyful endeavor! We find opportunities to celebrate and honor each other and laugh, connect and have fun with one another.
Meet Our Team
When you work with Conscious Revolution, you’ll know that we are different in our approach to elevating your conscious business.
In addition to hands-on support and consultation, we influence you to think differently, learning to rely on your own instincts as you build your conscious company.
Tara Jenkins, (she/her) Principal Consultant & Founder
I’ve got a couple of things I’m doing that I’d call my life’s joy (formerly called life’s work). Being a mom to my two kids gives me a chance to directly influence two people that will do great things in this beautiful, chaotic, wild world. Yes!
My life’s joy is also helping leaders build inspiring organizations that they love. There’s no better way to spend precious life time! The unique organizations we create together impact so many people for the better.
I have been told I’m a catalyst for transformation. To do this work I have a commitment to be awake in every aspect of my life, a commitment to equity and abundance, and a vow to be content in being both polished and a messy work in progress.
Witty things make me laugh. Kindred spirits fill me up. I love the sky, trees and water. Ask me to travel, sing, dance, hike, or see live music and I’m immediately in. Skiing and camping are a blast once you’ve started but the prep almost makes me not want to go. Someday I’ll be deeply settled in my body and soul and helping others to do the same.
And yeah, I have all those credentials one typically needs to be declared legit. Twenty-five plus wisdom-building years grinding it out as a global HR leader; Undergrad in Human Resources, Masters in Organizational Development & Leadership, Certifications galore. In 2019, I became one of the world’s first Certified Conscious Capitalism Consultants*.
Our work together will fill everyone, including us, with joy and inspiration. Yes, we can do that! Yes, that’s what we are doing! Join us!

Margot Fine, (she/her) Partner Consultant
My name is Margot (she/her) – I love walking by the ocean with my husband, learning new things alongside my 3 kids, the smell of a campfire, and making soup without recipes. I am a 3rd generation New Yorker, a mother and stepmother, and have been building community for over 20 years in Portland, Maine, colonized Wabanaki land. I have a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies from Bates College and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern Maine and am trained and licensed as a clinical social worker, with my practice rooted in radical social change strategies for structural transformation and community justice.
I am on a path that is driven by a desire to build a more interconnected world.
Over the last 15 years, as Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director at Maine Inside Out (MIO), I have co-created an innovative transformative justice organization implementing a sustainability framework, strategic planning, and operational oversight with a commitment to non-traditional governance models and shared leadership values. I bring a strong anti-racist movement orientation to all of my work and strive to create a culture of integrity and trust across diverse teams of people, where all can feel confident to build meaningful relationships, be autonomous and collaborative, make mistakes, and learn and grow personally and collectively.
At Conscious Revolution, I will work to build the Conscious Leadership Community with the aim to creatively engage leaders and changemakers across sectors to accelerate progress toward personal healing, organizational change, and systemic and cultural transformation. I also look forward to working with partners on purpose, values, and organizational design with a focus on shared leadership and organizational practices toward new culture building.

Kinds Words From Our Clients
Working with Conscious Revolution has enabled our team to make more thoughtful, informed, and relevant decisions regarding best practices for our team and the company's health. We've been able to strategically plan with awareness and a level of insight heretofore not experienced thanks to the help and guidance from Elise. She was kind, patient, informative and intelligent, operating from both a direct and compassionate—and objective—position of authority. I can't recommend Conscious Revolution enough.
In my opinion, there was a feeling of disconnect amongst the leaders and the teams. The work we did with Conscious Revolution in the sessions really created a connection amongst the group. I don't think that any other "event" or "meeting" would have created the connections that were built during the purpose and values work.
Conscious Revolution is an incredible partner! As a certified B Corp and employee-owned cooperative, we operate so differently from the "business as usual" approach that most consultants follow, and we feel a deep alignment with Conscious Revolution. Their team was so smart AND heart-centered in their approach, and their flexibility in adapting and refining their deliverables multiple times helped us to nail a critical and thorny part of our business.
One of our team members had previously worked with Conscious Revolution and recommended that we consider having them come in for one of our monthly team meetings as an outside speaker. I jumped at the idea, but frankly did not fully understand the true opportunity this would create. Their presentation inspired our team and quickly demonstrated a compassionate wisdom of healthy personal and business perspective. That day lead to what is now an ongoing relationship of coaching and collaboration that challenges me and our company to reach new levels of excellence in how we continue to grow and serve others. Everyone needs mentors, coaches and friends in their life. With Conscious Revolution I have found a remarkable blend of all three!
Conscious Revolution brought entrepreneurial energy and enthusiasm to Bristol's Workforce development, and our company is better off for it. She quickly earned the team's respect and we accomplished meaningful work that benefitted to our team members and the bottom line. If you have a chance to bring her talents to bring your company, take advantage of it.
Our firm had long struggled with our annual associate attorney evaluations. Since we retained Conscious Revolution our process has become smooth, predictable, efficient, and much more useful. Our shareholders appreciate the collaborative process for gathering associate feedback and our associates appreciate receiving well-written and timely feedback. It is a pleasure working with Conscious Revolution on this important professional development process.
We had a wonderful experience working with Conscious Revolution, and have continued to go back and ask for repeat engagements. We originally engaged Tara to help us restate and rework our purpose and core values. It was a giant project and Tara kept us on track with clear objectives. She is a master facilitator- organized, clear in her communication, and comfortable working with all different types of thinkers. She created an atmosphere and process where we could all do our best work. It was one of the best experiences of my career at Allagash, and other participants had excellent feedback as well.
