The 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.
  • Due to Covid-19 and the unknown future of virtual vs. in person events, we'll be determining and announcing the finalized structure by October 7, 2020.

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.
  • Overall
    - 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 live training events.
    - Additional monthly and quarterly agreements will be defined once the final structure is determined (will be announced by October 7, 2020).

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

What is the unique value of the training?

  • The 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.

What certification is provided?

You will receive a certification from The Conscious Leadership Group attesting that you are a Certified Coach in The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership. This program is not affiliated with any other coaching organization.

Once I am certified, am I able to join the CLG Team?

The CLG team is currently full. We do not have plans to add additional members at this time. We enthusiastically support all certified participants to establish conscious leadership offerings under their own brand or organization.

What are the dates for the in-person trainings?

The Program will run from February 2021-February 2022.

It is our intention that the program will include a combination of in-person and virtual trainings. We are waiting to determine the specifics until this fall so we can take the current social distancing realities into account. We will announce the finalized structure by October 7, 2020.

How many people will be part of the training?

There will be a maximum of 24 participants.

What is the investment?

$18,000 per person, plus travel and expenses.

After we approve your application, your spot is reserved upon receipt of full tuition payment.

If I can’t pay in full, can I pay in installments? 

For special circumstances we offer payment plans with associated fees for split payments.

What is the attendance policy?

Attending each day of all four quarterly meetings and fully participating in virtual training platforms is required to successfully complete the training.

What is the refund policy?

Participants are registered once they have paid in full before the training begins. There is no refund available after you have registered.

Can I speak with someone who has gone through the training?

Yes, we can share contact information with you of coaches who are certified or near
certification to get their perspective on the experience and value of the training. Read testimonials from past attendees here.
