Evolving Conscious Leaders

The CSLP is offered by The Argonauts to support your development as leader. It is a self-assessed profile based on our conscious leadership model across 6 states of consciousness.

Loes Fokker, Co-Founder & Head of Culture

Based on Adult Development Theory, the profile supports self-awareness and conscious leadership

Leadership states do not correlate to intelligence or personality. They are life states – the development progress we make towards purpose and trust. How we make sense of life is by embracing the state we are in and tapping into ever more conscious experiences that support our growth.

Get to know the six Conscious States

The CSLP™ recognizes six Conscious States of Leadership. Understanding your state helps you start to look beneath the surface of your inner self, gain more experiences to deepen your outer impact and navigate the uncertainties ahead.

As we found, no one state is better or happier than another. We can all continue to develop and even fall back within a state and between states across each of the attributes.

What is the science behind it?

Our model is based on four essential concepts which are used to differentiate the six states: cognition style (thinking capacity), sense-making capacity (relational, action logic), systems orientation (being versus doing),  and spiritual orientation (life stages). The way an individual experiences each concept will show up differently at each state. 


Cognition style

A person’s characteristic mode of perceiving, thinking, remembering, and problem solving.


Sense-making capacity

A person’s capacity to turn circumstances into situations that are understood specifically in conversations as a springboard for action. The view of sense making is a construct of self development, self actualization and a change in personal meaning.


Systems orientation

A person’s focus on the context and the environment in which they operate. Am I the author of my own life ? What does that even mean? 


Spiritual orientation

A person’s self-perceived spiritual knowledge, skills, and attitude that influence one’s ability to derive meaning and purpose, from community, work and life, – addressing the disorderly, messy parts of life that make us human.
