Zoom Training

Taste of Conscious Leadership / Grace Clayton / January 19, 2022

This four-week course is designed to support you to learn the foundations of conscious leadership: how to live and lead from a state of trust versus threat. We’ll meet weekly on Zoom in an online classroom and teach and guide you through exercises to support you in creating a shift around challenging issues in your life.

You’ll learn...

  • What conscious leadership is
  • The difference between leading from trust vs. threat
  • How to identify your threat patterns
  • Tools to shift from threat to trust


This event is for organizational leaders to explore the core concepts and models of conscious leadership. We introduce the basic tools we use to eliminate drama, build trust, and create conscious cultures. You will explore a professional relationship challenge and learn how you can permanently shift the pattern.

This event is highly experiential. You’ll engage in multiple exercises in pairs and triads with follow-up full group debriefs. Your vulnerability and authenticity will support a richer learning experience for all.

You’ll walk away with an understanding of:

  • What conscious leadership is
  • The difference between leading from trust vs. threat
  • How to identify your own threat patterns
  • Technologies for shifting from threat to trust.


The event will start at 8:30am PT sharp and ends at 1:30pm PT. There will be 3 90-minute sessions with 15 minute breaks in between. 

Each participant must login to the event individually (not as a team in front of one camera).

By registering for this event, you agree to be on your computer with video for the duration of the training except during breaks and when you need to step away.

The sessions will be recorded and made available to participants.

What We’ll Cover

  • Context versus Content. Paying attention to context is the key to a drama free culture.
  • Leading from Trust Vs. Fear. This distinction is at the heart of repeating drama patterns in organizations. Understanding this model immediately shifts the effectiveness of conversations both team and organization wide.
  • The 4 Questions of Conscious Leadership. Four key questions designed to be used ongoing to build self awareness and become a more conscious leader.  
  • The 15 Commitments. This model outlines behaviors and beliefs that are the most significant limiting factors for a team. The primary focus is on the cornerstone commitments 1 and 2.
  • The Drama Triangle. The Triangle roles of Victim, Villain, and Hero describes the go-to positions that create and perpetuate drama and limit organizational growth and creativity.
  • Willingness to Shift. We cover the difference between wanting to shift and being willing to shift. We provide willingness questions to help teams discover if they’re actually willing to shift the issues they say they want to change.
  • Shift Technologies. We introduce simple technologies that you can immediately put into action in the midst of challenging interactions to change the dynamic and outcome by shifting from threat to trust.

It was fabulous! The facilitator was excellent and the attendees all seemed very engaged. I think it was the first time I’ve ever been involved in an event where every single person showed up. Thanks for all your help and support.

Grace's mastery of the 15 Commitments allows our meetings to be more like conversations that seem far more organic than structured. She has this incredible presence that draws you in and encourages authenticity and openness. Her kindness and sensitivity is so sincere and creates a very safe space for our practice. Somehow, Grace finds a balance at Forum that allows for organic exploration of topics while managing to keep all ten of us on track and focused.

I’ve read many books and listened to talks and gotten inspired, but then it’s gone. CLG gives really practical, easy steps to apply to real life, so I am seeing changes that are really working in my life. Grace has helped me break down how relationships work and how to make them successful. At work, I’ve become much more honest with colleagues and direct reports, and they feel me being more genuine. It has taken out the hierarchy of the situation, even though I am the boss, and we now feel the genuine human connection.
