Diana Chapman is one of the most sought after corporate advisors in the world. James & Diana open the show revisiting Diana’s groundbreaking book “The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership”, and summarize a few of the commitments and their meanings. Diana then explains what it means to take “radical responsibility” , and delineates the fine line between being an open minded and a convicted leader. Diana then dissects how emotional intelligence is often times underrated when talked about in thecontext of important leadership qualities. James and Diana discuss the importance of feedback, even though often times many of us are innately averse to giving or receiving feedback. Diana talks about how being a visionary is often times an overrated leadership quality, and how many times visionaries lack the structure required to make their lofty goals a reality. They close the show with a discussion about the role sexual energy should play in the workplace, and how Diana is making it a point to embrace that energy rather than pretend it doesn't exist.
