An Interview with Jim Dethmer, Co-Founder of Conscious Leadership Group
Jim explains that teams have a greater chance of seeing reality if they create certain kinds of conversations amongst themselves. These conversations can be between customers, competitors, and innovators. Feedback rich environments will also assist in creating a clear reality. To have these open conversations and a feedback friendly culture, trust is needed. Jim says for trust to be lasting in a team setting, you will need to trust yourself first. EQ trumps IQ, but BQ (body intelligence) may trump all of the above. We can learn practical ways to interpret the information our bodies give us. Later, Jim explains the commitments to conscious leadership, how to work around assumptions, and preventing burnout.
