Publisher's Summary

You'll never see leadership the same way again after reading this book.

These 15 commitments are a distillation of decades of work with CEOs and other leaders. They are radical or provocative for many. They have been game changers for us and for our clients. We trust they will be for you, too.

Our experience is that unconscious leadership is not sustainable. It won't work for you, your team, or your organization in the long term. Unconscious leadership can deliver short-term results, but the costs of living and leading unconsciously are great.

Fear drives most leaders to make choices that are at odds with healthy relationships, vitality, and balance. This fear leaves a toxic residue that won't be as easily tolerated in an increasingly complex business environment.

Conscious leadership offers the antidote to fear. These pages contain a comprehensive road map to guide you to shift from fear-based to trust-based leadership. Once you learn and start practicing conscious leadership, you'll get results in the form of more energy, clarity, focus, and healthier relationships. You'll do more and more of what you are passionate about and less of what you do out of obligation. Your team will get results as well. Drama and gossip will all but disappear, and the energy and resources that fueled them will be redirected towardsinnovation and creativity.

Any one of these commitments will change your life. All of them together are revolutionary.

What do you need to bring to the table?

Be curious.

Sounds so simple, yet in our experience it's a skill few have mastered. Most of us are far more interested in being right and proving it than we are in learning, growing, and shifting out of our old patterns. By default we gravitate toward the familiar. We're asking you to take a chance and explore the unfamiliar.

More than the title suggests

I have listened to this audiobook now more than three times and I digest a lot of this genre. This is not a cheesy leadership book and a more fitting title would be "15 Commitments of the Conscious Self". You will hear many good strategies for leadership in the conventional meaning of the word but more important are the takeaways for self leadership. My favourites were the chapters on candor and integrity, which have both nudged me in directions with significant immediate payoffs in the way I feel about myself. I was directed to it from a Tim Ferris interview with Jim in which he shares his personal story, which is itself amazing and I'd encourage interested listeners to look it up. I'm already recommending this to friends.

Be willing to read this book.

This is now my go-to for leadership fundamentals as I build and grow my start up business. The 15 Committments are now on my whiteboard, so I see them daily and know to stay above the line, and when I drift below the line, I know I need to work on that area of my life. be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Thank you guys for this book.

Powerful!

A must read for self development. First suggested to me by the Zen Parenting Radio.
I am currently re-reading for the third time in a row with my partner to practice these concepts daily. Truly, I wish to live by these commitments. The authors give great examples for raising awareness and acknowledging one's current position.

Powerful

This books really makes you look at how you are creating your world. It offers perspectives and lenses for you to look through, and actions you can take that can truly change the world that you live in, which again, is a world you are creating from your perspective.
