Jim Dethmer and Diana Chapman founded The Conscious Leadership Group to support the
expansion of conscious leadership in the world. The 15 Commitments of Conscious
Leadership, described in detail in their best-selling book of the same name, are at the heart
of the CLG body of work. This training focuses on how to embody these commitments in
your own life and use them in one-on-one coaching with organizational leaders. This
program will not be focusing on group facilitation of the commitments.
