“Learning the skills in The 15 Commitments to Conscious Leadership has been one of the most important experiences of my life. It dramatically changed me as both a person and a leader. At Asana, we believe that Conscious Leadership training is so important we give every single employee the opportunity to go through a 2-day Conscious Leadership training, and many report profound changes to how they work. Because of Conscious Leadership, our communication is clearer and more authentic, and Asana as a company is, I believe, more effective in succeeding in its mission. I can nearly guarantee that reading this book will make you a more effective leader.”
