Summary

You'll never see leadership the same way again after reading this book.

These 15 commitments are a distillation of decades of work with CEOs and other leaders. They are radical or provocative for many. They have been game changers for us and for our clients. We trust they will be for you, too.

Our experience is that unconscious leadership is not sustainable. It won't work for you, your team, or your organization in the long term. Unconscious leadership can deliver short-term results, but the costs of living and leading unconsciously are great.

Fear drives most leaders to make choices that are at odds with healthy relationships, vitality, and balance. This fear leaves a toxic residue that won't be as easily tolerated in an increasingly complex business environment.

Conscious leadership offers the antidote to fear. These pages contain a comprehensive road map to guide you to shift from fear-based to trust-based leadership. Once you learn and start practicing conscious leadership, you'll get results in the form of more energy, clarity, focus, and healthier relationships. You'll do more and more of what you are passionate about and less of what you do out of obligation. Your team will get results as well. Drama and gossip will all but disappear, and the energy and resources that fueled them will be redirected towardsinnovation and creativity.

Any one of these commitments will change your life. All of them together are revolutionary.

What do you need to bring to the table?

Be curious.

Sounds so simple, yet in our experience it's a skill few have mastered. Most of us are far more interested in being right and proving it than we are in learning, growing, and shifting out of our old patterns. By default we gravitate toward the familiar. We're asking you to take a chance and explore the unfamiliar.

Overly theoretical and impractical

15 rules to follow, while actually there are only 3 main rules and then 12 exceptions that are needed in order to patch all the holes in the first 3 rules. Overall very impractical book to be used in day to day with a few exceptions where the authors are just starting something that’s very obvious.

Be willing to read this book.

This is now my go-to for leadership fundamentals as I build and grow my start up business. The 15 Committments are now on my whiteboard, so I see them daily and know to stay above the line, and when I drift below the line, I know I need to work on that area of my life. be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Thank you guys for this book.

Powerful!

A must read for self development. First suggested to me by the Zen Parenting Radio.
I am currently re-reading for the third time in a row with my partner to practice these concepts daily. Truly, I wish to live by these commitments. The authors give great examples for raising awareness and acknowledging one's current position.

How to be a douche in 15 easy steps

This is horrible. They want you to drink the cool-aid and sell you on hiring their consulting business.
They have compiled everything that is bad about political correctness and made almost a cult out of it.
Stay away if you hold the integrity of your mind dear. Dont be fooled by the few good parts, this is a virus for your brain.

Amazing book for life and business.

No matter if you are a leader in business or not, this book will benefit your life.
I appreciate that the authors have a broad world view. This book delves almost to a spiritual level with one’s connection to source (god, etc) without being religious or narrow minded on beliefs.
Each chapter is a new exploration of oneself and the content can be listened to multiple times with a new layer developing upon the last.
I love this book and find it a valuable defense for business and personal life in general as well.
Definitely recommend and you won’t regret it. Everyone has something to learn from this mode of thinking.

Excellent Principles for Leadership

Would you listen to The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership again? Why?

This should be the business person's bible. The book is really well organized, the reader (one of the authors) does an excellent job, and the information is a how-to on taking the level of consciousness in business to it's highest level. It's in alignment with so much of what I've come to believe as an Emotional Intelligence coach and trainer. I'm gaining some new insights and tools for productive communication.I highly recommend it.
