Commitments of Conscious Leadership with Jim Dethmer
“If you stop numbing the pain that’s there because you are not living in your deepest, fiercest loving way, the pain will escalate to where you have to do something different. And it won’t just be a temporary fix, you’ll have to do something meaningfully different.” - Jim DethmerJim Dethmer has been called to reduce suffering by targeting the institution that’s more central to our lives than ever: work and business. As the founder of The Conscious Leadership Group, he finds the ways that teams are struggling and shows them not only how to better their experience at work, but improve their lives as human beings. By smuggling transformational principles into corporate worlds, he is cultivating true conscious leadership from the people who never knew that was something they even needed.This week on Find Your Fierce & Loving, let go of the belief that you must always be seeking more.
