Jim Dethmer coaches leaders and supports individuals, groups, and organizations to optimize their effectiveness. Jim has been devoted to the practice of conscious leadership for 45 years. Potent and practical, he sees issues clearly and communicates next steps crisply. Jim works with Fortune 200 CEOs across all industries, and co-authored the book—High Performing Investment Teams—to support his work with leading asset management organizations around the world. Most recently Jim co-authored the number-one selling business leadership book, The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership: A New Paradigm for Sustainable Success.

The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership

Distilled through years of practice and experience advising CEOs and their organizations, the 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership offers a roadmap to create leaders, teams and organizations that are based on trust, curiosity and learning. This talk leads audiences through the key competencies of sustained leadership success: self-awareness and learning agility.  With laser-like precision, Jim breaks down how these 15 commitments lead to trust-rich teams and organizations where full engagement becomes the norm. Audiences learn how to end blame and criticism, put an end to gossip, and how emotional intelligence is key to peak performance for leaders, teams and organizations.

Why EQ Trumps IQ in the Workplace

Investment banks are not exactly bastions of touchy feely sentimentalism. They are no nonsense, hard driving, competitive and bottom line focused. The people who live in these worlds are some of the highest IQ people on the planet. So why did they invite Jim Dethmer to talk to a group of their high potential, next generation leaders about FEELINGS? Because they are part of an ever-growing group of leaders who know that IQ will only get you so far, and that EQ (emotional intelligence) can take you even farther. The EQ body of research has been around for several decades. Research has shown that EQ trumps IQ as a predictor of long-term success in a leader’s career. Dethmer not only walks audiences through the story of how and why EQ trumps IQ, but breaks down the mystery of emotional intelligence, literacy and wisdom so that during the talk people experience the power of EQ that they can take into their everyday lives.
