Atomic Business Coaching-Episode 40

Conscious Leadership and its Impact on Successful Businesses

In this exciting new episode of the Atomic Business Coaching podcast, Tom and Adam explore the significance of conscious leadership and how it applies to running a successful business. The discussion goes into the concept of different levels of consciousness in leadership the roles of mindset and self-awareness in problem-solving and business growth. 

Tom sheds light on the value of onsite work and the crucial role social interaction plays in business. He connects this topic to Episode 38 of their podcast, which focused on the transition from being a practitioner to a leader and, ultimately, to becoming a king. 

Adam and Tom stress that leadership is not something everyone is born with, underlining the necessity of leadership training and development. They explore the concept of conscious leadership, placing great importance on self-awareness and perceiving challenges as opportunities for personal growth. 

To support their ideas, they referred to the insightful book “The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership” by Jim Dethmer, which explores different levels of consciousness. Adam Hurd eloquently relates consciousness to awareness, emphasizing the need for individuals to be present and sensitive to their circumstances rather than passively observing events unfold.

Tom thoroughly explains two concepts of consciousness from the book: being “above the line” (open and ready to learn) and “below the line” (defensive and stubbornly wanting to be right). They explore how adopting a defensive attitude towards failure can hinder success in business, drawing on real-life coaching experiences.

Adam further suggests that a lack of competence in leadership roles often leads people to become defensive and cling to their beliefs. He stresses the importance of being open, curious, and willing to learn, even in the face of being wrong. 

Lastly, Tom introduces the four levels of consciousness from the book, starting with the victim mentality (“the world happens to me”), where individuals feel targeted by negative circumstances. On the other hand, the second level, “the world happens for me,” reflects a mindset where people see problems as opportunities.
