"After attending the Conscious Leadership Program I’m more in the moment, and able to listen with more presence, patience and less frustration which has made a real difference in influencing others. This is an invaluable education for leaders who want to lead with clarity and presence."
"This seminar was life changing. I've read a multitude of leadership and self-help books over the years. Just when I thought I’d researched and studied it all, the opportunity to attend the CLS Program came along. It showed me how the mind actually works which none of the other seminars have even touched on. They all focus on how to treat the resulting behaviours, but not the true cause. Conscious Leadership digs deeper, exposing the root of the human experience, changing every aspect of your life in the most positive ways. This essential education is not just for business leaders - it's beneficial for every person on any path in life."
""The Conscious Leadership School State of Mind Seminar is an eye opening experience that all managers and leaders should take the opportunity to participate in. It is truly amazing that learning something so simple about how the mind works can change your entire perception on life, leading to many positive changes. As a result of this seminar I have become a calmer, more understanding and level headed manager, husband and father - all from learning and becoming cognizant of what can and what cannot impact your current state of mind. I recommend this seminar for any manager or leader who wants to feel less stressed and more empowered and effective in all areas of your life. You will be amazed at the results.”"
""Before the CLS program, I believed that getting caught up in my thoughts and feeling busy-minded was normal, especially at work in challenging circumstances. Now I recognize that the calmness and clarity I experienced in the sessions are a natural state available to me any time. I’ve been able to let go of work thoughts for longer periods over the weekend than previously and as a result, I can more deeply relax during my time away from work. In addition, my listening skills have definitely improved! I'm more present and able to help as I no longer stop their flow in my attempts to help them along. I highly recommend the CLS State of Mind programme if you want to lead with presence and perspective."
"Chantal was an inspirational guide for me . I approached her at a point in my career when I needed to change my leadership style and operate from a more empowered position. Chantal helped me to understand how I was perceiving situations in my mind and in turn how that was shaping my own performance as a leader. I realised how pre-conceptions stop us from connecting and engaging colleagues and clients. Chantal's guidance has continued to be transformational in both personal and business situations."
"“Chantal Burns is a wonderful executive coach and mentor. I have known Chantal for over 10 years, as a colleague and friend, and have always been impressed by the certainty and clarity she brings to her work. She shares such a warmth and humour that clients relax easily and feel deeply supported by her. Take any chance you get to work with this extraordinary coach and teacher.”"
"‘Thanks to the changes I experienced after working with Chantal, my work life has become much more enjoyable. I now feel that I am much better prepared to plan and lead, to think strategically and to deliver.’"
"Chantal’s depth of experience, coupled with a warm empathy for her clients, makes her an extremely valued partner for anyone looking to excel in whatever world they are living in. Her understanding and application of many disciplines ensures that whatever challenge you face, you are never left without a reassuring positive voice deep inside you saying “go for it...” If you want to find this voice, then you need Chantal in your life!"
"‘What you learn will change your state of mind to such an extent that it will make you 100 times happier and more effective at work’"
"Attending the Conscious Leadership School, with Chantal Burns was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only from a business perspective but from a personal perspective also. I am forever grateful for what I learned, for the leadership and coaching skills I was given and for the knowledge and understanding of how our mind works and the innate capacity for insight, clarity and creativity that we all have. From a practical perspective, being involved in the advanced programme in the 2nd year was so useful as I got involved with the creation and design and delivery of sessions for a live client. This opportunity to observe and respond to their reactions, questions and responses to the teaching was invaluable. As a business coach with my own clients (and coaching consultancy), all the sessions I design now, have been built from what I was taught within the CLS practitioner programme. The knowledge and experience of all the faculty within the CLS was vast and it was great to get the different perspectives and teaching styles. On a separate note and something I never expected was the lifelong friendships forged with the rest of the ‘crew’ – the whole two years was an incredible experience, worth every penny paid…and more."
"Being part of the conscious leadership programme, has enabled me to achieve more that I could have dreamed. 18 months ago I left a very successful consulting business to start a vegan food company. No experience, no idea of the outcome. People keep telling me I must be stressed and overworked. I am neither. Challenges are becoming more and more fun and my capacity to deal with situations as they happen, not worry about worrying or get stressed when I think I’m stressed, has allowed me to grow a company faster than I could have ever dreamt of. I get to access my best self the majority of the time, but most importantly, I understand my team and see them for the humans that they are, and I feel fully equipped to guide them through their challenging moments. The programme and Chantal's guidance has been invaluable."
"This has blown everything I have ever done out of the water. The ethos behind this and the outputs are brilliant. If you have a passion for understanding where organisations are going, understanding leadership and innovation from a forward thinking perspective, then this is where you want to be."
"It has already changed my life. I definitely recommend this hands down, without a shadow of a doubt and I'd probably recommend this over the Masters. I'm so pleased that I did it this year."
"Chantal is an extraordinary individual who produces extraordinary results. As a client of Chantal's for some time, her teaching showed me a view of the world and myself that changed my past, my present and my future forever. The impact on all areas of my life was immediate and continues strongly 3 years on. My performance at work improved immeasurably as I can now lead without my own personal barriers getting in the way, and I see through daily issues in a way that stops them from being obstacles. The relationships I have not only with my family, friends and colleagues, but also with myself, have never been stronger and simpler. I take action now. I don't wait to give myself permission to do things anymore and I don't put unnecessary barriers in my own way. The change is profound and the learning continues every day. This programme will transform how you lead, live and work. I cannot recommend it highly enough''"
"From knowing these principles, you become someone that can lead from this amazing space."
"This has blown everything I have ever done out of the water. The ethos behind this and the outputs are brilliant."
"I’ve done a lot of development and i have never had something that cut to the core like this. This is different."
We're told frequently by our clients that they want their people to be self-directed or be braver, better problem solvers etc. Yet what they do (innocently) is encourage the very opposite behaviour. As leaders or managers, one of the key questions we need to ask ourselves is: 'Are we thinking for people or thinking with people? To thrive and....Read More
Something I often hear people say about anxiety and life situations is "It's ok because most of the stuff I worry about will probably never happen". It’s fair to say that most of what we catastrophise about may never happen and some of what we don't think about will happen. But true resilience doesn't mean putting a positive spin on things. ....Read More
Recently, there's been a huge rise in organisational wellbeing initiatives, in order to address the mental health of staff. But there’s an unconscious bias which is silently stifling this noble intention. I'm naming it the ‘At Any Cost’ bias. We all know people who are ultra competitive, driven, conscientious or ambitious and who ofte....Read More

The BBC reported on some new research. Apparently, it's been discovered that if you put your Christmas decorations up early, you will be happier - the reason being that it brings back happy childhood memories. A BBC guest therapist - a fan of decorating early - went on to say “Why have just 7 days of happiness when you can have 35 days!" Sh....Read More
