Want to hear another interview about Conscious Leadership?

Are you a single leader working in a larger team or organization or in a community. Are you doing your best to lead consciously, to have a growth mindset, and yet all around you there are people who are undermining your ability to make progress? What do we do when it’s just us and we’re trying to swim against the tide and change our whole entire culture?

Today’s show features the incredible creator of the Conscious Leadership Group, author of the book, The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership, Diana Chapman. Diana walks us through some role-playing that will help us understand how to transform our businesses through the practice of conscious leadership. 

Many of us have been in organizations that have felt toxic. We impact each other and while there are many tools that we can use to really bring ourselves into the mindset that we want to have, the effect of culture is quite real. With Diana’s help, we begin to find that transformational power to create lasting and sustainable change that each of us actually has buried within ourselves, just waiting to be accessed. 

Meet the Guest

Anjani Bhargava enables business results through leadership, transforming operators into culture-building leaders of today. She works in partnership with organizations who believe culture should be one of their greatest unfair customer advantages. She partners with CEOs, CHROs and leadership teams of start-up, high-growth, Fortune 500, and not-for-profit companies at critical junctions establishing the next chapter of growth, transformation, or turnaround.

The core of her work centers around two things – culture and coaching –  helping organizations build the right culture for their stage of growth and enabling leaders and leadership teams to be stewards of the culture through their behaviors. Building highly self-aware authentic leaders, who are the beacon of who others want to follow is her gold standard. Anjani is known for enabling transformational change in leaders by coaching across three planes – the work leaders do (strategy and tactics), how they do it with others (leadership), and how they show up as an authentic human (deep personal mindsets). 

Her genius is her ability to blend her strategic business powerhouse and organizational development skills with the deep human work of leadership. 

Given her background as an organizational psychologist and her broad experience as a Fortune 100 leader, founder, investor, and board member, she understands the complexities leaders face from every angle, across the lifecycle of a business from inception to growth to resurgence.

Her clients include large and public organizations such as IBM, Xerox, Biogen, AMD, and Cedars-Sinai, High-Growth companies such as Slack, Radiology Partners, IRI, Capsilon, and AVIA, and a multitude of VC and PE-backed startups.
