A group of like-minded organizational leaders who come together to practice consciousness and conscious leadership together. Forum members challenge themselves and one another to live a life aligned with The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership. Forums are led by certified CLG facilitators and are currently held in New York, DC, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and virtually.
This particular group format provides unrivaled learning experiences and outcomes:
CLG forums focus on context. Most groups focus on the content of a member’s issue. We listen in order to understand the content, but our primary focus is on the context from which the content arises. In doing so, we support members in permanently resolving issues. Watch this video to learn more about the relationship between content and context.
We believe that the deepest transformation comes when a facilitator has mastery in both the 15 commitments and coaching others. Therefore, all of our forums are facilitated by trained and certified CLG coaches. Our forums prioritize self awareness over socializing, giving business advice, or networking.
Leaders who integrate conscious leadership experience a greater sense of wellbeing. They experience more energy, creativity, and connection. If you take what you learn in forum to heart and practice, you’ll be positioned to begin to transform the culture of your team(s). Leaders who apply conscious leadership at work report that conflicts are resolved more easily, drama declines significantly, and people feel more empowered, included, and valued.

"I’lI admit, I think taking time to meet with a group every month for a period of time when you already feel like you're dropping balls, can feel like a bit too much. I've been surprised at how leveraged that time is actually in a group setting. I now experience a higher degree of trust, despite the outcomes of the day to day. And the goodness of it all is that it’s liberated me to apply myself without unhelpful anxiety." Premal Shah / President, kiva.org
“During the persona party at our retreat I experienced a profound shift; it turned the hardest thing I've ever dealt with in my adult life into an incredible learning opportunity. I now know I can choose to look at every situation in life as an opportunity rather than a struggle...[In general] I think of Forum as fun. I see it on my calendar and I look forward to it.” Joe Greenstein / Co-Founder, InnerSpace; Former CEO, Flixster, Rotten Tomatoes
“Forum has opened me up to a fuller experience of myself. I've seen myself step back and let things unfold more naturally. My relationships and connection to organizations, family members, or projects that I'm creating have been more clear and less laden with emotional baggage. Everything feels lighter and cleaner, a little more nimble than it has in the past. That's been a great shift for me.” Susan Flynn / Owner, Verdant Hollow Farms
“I found Forum to be edgy but not scary. I got as much challenge out of it as I wanted and as much vulnerability as I was comfortable with. There was a really nice allowance to meet me where I was. The retreat was exceptionally fun. Seriously, the retreat was one of the most fun two days I've ever had in my whole life. And I've had a lot of fun. So that's saying something.”
Caneel Joyce / Executive Coach, Culture Builder, Movement Maker
“CLG Forum has given me a level of calmness and awareness that I didn't know existed. It's truly changed my outlook and approach to life.”
