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.

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.

Playbook for Life

THIS put words and examples to everything that felt true in my experience. The frameworks and concepts have saved me decades of time, frustration from not understanding what’s going on beneath the surface, and something I can apply to my life immediately.

This is my new reference guide.

Life Changing!

This book was crazy good! They lost me in the beginning as almost too new agey, but I stuck with it and I loved the concepts once we got into the actual commitments. They are so important and so valuable that I believe bi will revisit them for years to come.
