The book starts with a story of two successful leaders and what a good day looks like. One leader is conscious, and one is not. The conscious leader always strives to be above the line, using the 15 commitments as a guide. Being above the line is a leader who is open, committed to learning and curious. Each of the 15 commitments reflects this in a different way. For example, commitment four is speaking candidly. Above the line leadership commits to saying what is true to me and being a person to whom others can express themselves with candor. Below the line leadership for commitment four is withholding my truth and speaking in a way that allows me to try to manipulate and outcome and not listening to others.
My copy of this book is well used with bookmarks, turned down pages and underlined passages. I’ve bought three copies and have had five clients buy copies. I’ve been using this book for over a year in my role as a leadership coach and can’t say enough great thing about it. It builds on some of what I know and introduces new concepts in an easy way. I’d also like to complement the authors on a wonderful resource packed website full of videos and pdf to support the book.
Every idea presented in this book is done in a manner that is easy to understand and easy to apply. Part I offers a simple model – a line that one can find oneself either above or below – that alone offers the potential for deep and lasting insight. The practice of locating oneself either above or below the line enables broader thinking and creates room to explore and potentially shift one’s mindset.
*A well-curated, well-organized gallery of ideas and principles*
The authors unabashedly draw on concepts and practices from the work of others (Hendricks Institute, Sedona Method, Byron Katie, Immunity to Change to name a few) to augment and support their own ideas.
*Not just for leaders, and not just for business*
Leaders absolutely benefit from the 15 Commitments. I have introduced it to clients in a variety of leadership roles, in a variety of organizations (tech, education, media). I also apply it to my own life and have found practices that have substantively improved my relationship with my stepchildren, and my communication with my husband, and other family members.
*Exercises and resources*
At then end of each chapter on the individual commitments there is a section, Practicing the Commitment, that offers ideas and exercises for building the commitment for yourself or in your organization. The authors also offer tools and videos at the Conscious Leadership Group website, Conscious.Is.
***Update November 2018***
My hard copy of The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership is well worn, marked up and tabbed. It has become my gift of choice for leaders of all kinds and I find myself referring to it regularly as a resource guide for exploring the different challenges my client (and I face). In the Audible version, Jim Dethmer's voice provides a warm invitation to dig in and explore.
The genius of this approach is that Jim Dethmer, Diana Chapman and Kaley Warner Klemp have curated some of the most fascinating concepts from psychology, neuroscience, spirituality, and organizational development and have woven them together into a system that has the power to change individual and team behavior.
I highly recommend this book as well as all of the free resources (videos, handouts, meditations, blog posts) available on the Conscious Leadership Group's website.
Overall I would recommend this as well as many others on leadership.
