The 15 Commitments Coaches Certification Training F.A.Q.
Jim Dethmer and Diana Chapman founded The Conscious Leadership Group (CLG) 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 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?
(1) Coaches who 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.
A coaching practice with organizational leaders (people who work in organizations as managers with direct reports).
This program is not designed for coaches who are just beginning their practice, looking to learn the basics, and/or build a new business. We admit experienced coaches who want to learn how to masterfully embody The 15 Commitments and to coach using the CLG coaching model.
This program is not for coaches who primarily work with individuals who are not leaders in organizations, e.g. life coaches, relationship coaches.
(2) HR/OD/Human Capital professionals who coach organizational leaders as part of their professional responsibility.

The training will begin in November 2022.

Completing this program is a prerequisite for being considered to join the CLG team. However, we rarely add people to the CLG team and we are highly selective.
