Beyond Fundamentals Course

Welcome to Beyond Fundamentals

We're thrilled to welcome you this experience with us, and we're excited to get started. Before the first session, please read (or re-read) the Zone of Genius chapter (at minimum) in The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership.

We’ll meet weekly on Zoom in an interactive classroom for four weeks. We'll guide you through the exploration and practice of Commitments 8-15 of The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership. Each week we’ll introduce experiential exercises and shift moves related to commitments 8-15. You’ll practice in diads and triads during the class in breakout rooms, and receive practices to experiment with between classes.


Zoom Meetings

  • Monday April 20, 9:00 - 10:30am PST
  • Monday April 27, 9:00 - 10:30am PST
  • Monday May 4, 9:00 - 10:30am PST

Please click here for the meeting link. The link will be the same for each session.

You’ll find prep materials below for each week. Please come to the session prepared. 

After each session, we’ll post a recording of the class, any additional learning and practice materials that came up during our session, and list the resource page for the commitment(s) where you can explore even more. If you miss an in person class, you’ll be able to get up to speed and continue with us in close to real time by watching the video and engaging with the resources.

  • I am exploring what my zone of genius is, and I'd love your support.  Would you be willing to get on a zoom call with me, and a handful of others, for about 20 minutes to help me see more clearly what I most love to do in the world? I'll share some of my favorite memories and then ask the group to reflect back themes that you've heard. There is nothing you need to do to prepare. You might want to take notes while I'm sharing. If you're willing, please respond to this Doodle poll with the dates that work best for you.
