15 Commitments Coaches Certification Training F.A.Q.

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.

What is the 15 Commitments Coaches Certification Training?

The 15 Commitments Coaches Certification Training is a one-year program designed to
support organizational coaches to develop mastery in:

  • Living the 15 Commitments 
  • Holding space for other individuals to live the 15 Commitments
  • Coaching one on one clients using the 15 Commitments and other CLG tools

Who is this training for?

  • Coaches who already have basic coaching certification or training. This program is not for people who want to learn the basics of how to coach individuals. We assume that you already have both coaching knowledge and skill. 
  • Coaches who already have a coaching practice with organizational leaders (people who work in organizations as managers and who have direct reports). This program is not designed for coaches who are just beginning their practice and looking to learn the basics and build a new business. It’s for experienced coaches who want to learn how to masterfully embody the 15 commitments and to coach using the CLG process.
  • HR/OD/Human Capital professionals who coach organizational leaders as part of their professional responsibility.

What is the structure of the training?

  • All trainings are facilitated by Jim and Diana.
  • The cohort will meet quarterly.

What are the agreements?

  • Weekly Assignments
    - You agree to practice 30 minutes a week with a peer learning partner. 
    - You agree to participate at least once a week on the group discussion board.
    - You agree to meditate daily.
  • Monthly Assignments
    - You agree to participate in a small peer practice group via phone or video 90 minutes a month. Your group will be facilitated by a member of the CLG coaching team.
    - You agree to join a monthly 60-minute call led by Jim and/or Diana on the 2nd Monday of every month at 9am CT. 
  • Quarterly Assignments
    - You agree to provide one recorded coaching session to Jim and Diana per quarter.
    - You agree to exchange a separate recorded coaching session with your learning partner and provide feedback to one another each quarter.
  • You agree to regularly receive mentoring and feedback from all facilitators and
    participants about how you are embodying the commitments and using the
    coaching tools.
  • You agree to attend each day of the in-person meetings.

    **Weekly, monthly and quarterly assignments are not negotiable**

What is the unique value of the training?

  • 15 Commitments Coaching Certification
  • Access to and use of CLG coaches materials
  • Training in how to use all CLG tools and materials
  • Practice in using all CLG tools and materials with other coaches
  • Daily access to a discussion board where Jim, Diana, CLG team members, and
    fellow participants will offer feedback.
  • As part of the training you will have four coaching sessions reviewed by members
    of the CLG team.

    Commitments and our coaching methodology. Periodically we invite others to join our team. Those who complete our certification training may be considered for our team.
