LEAD is a six month group coaching program for awake and generous leaders committed to impact, service and growing generative connection. Together we co-create meaningful change that enables your greatest gifts to be realized in the world.

 

Dear Ones…

I know without a waver or a whimper that I am here to support leaders in bringing their truest, deepest, most soul aligned gifts into the world, for the world.

I know that doing this in high touch, deep contact containers is the way I am able to meet, hold and midwife the transformation that leaders are looking for to truly unfurl and fulfill their calling.

LEAD is my best attempt to express my own calling while meeting these questions with devotion, skillful means, practicality and faith:

  • How do you lead your life and work to more fully reflect the truth and values you feel and are committed to?

  • Where do you go and how do you create when there's not a map or model for the world I want to belong to?

  • Where are the people who are living these questions as well, who want to gather in service of our evolution, individually and collectively?

 

Do you want to feel like you can channel your genius into its greatest expression with rock solid support at your back?

 

This is for leaders who... 

  • Want to own and harness their truest superpowers, putting down what’s not theirs to carry, trusting that our collective genius will get the job done.
  • Are seeking to alleviate suffering and contribute to society through their work and service.
  • Have established a career, business, movement or body of work and are ready for their next evolution.
  • Desire nourishment, joy, connection and laughter all the way along and all the way through.
  • Are experiencing loneliness or isolation in their leadership and desire to connect with other brilliant humans doing their work.
  • Have a vision for what’s next, that’s a little out of their comfort zone or current expertise, and would love a collective to get to be a beginner with on some of those pieces.
  • Need a high-caliber container and trustable, mature colleagues to fully relax and feel supported in their next level growth.
  • Are perhaps in the thick messy weeds of life, while endeavoring to show up wholeheartedly.
  • Value and envision a future where the principle of care reorganizes the fabric of culture.
  • Are grown ups, who take responsibility for their foibles as well as their gifts.
  • Believe that the extractive systems and culture around how we work need to be revolutionized so that this world works for everybody.
  • Have worked with coaches, therapists, healers, and are no strangers to dark nights of soulful reckoning.
  • Want to collaborate and be in collective without losing themselves or their own unique calling and autonomy.
  • Are experiencing transition and expansion that’s possibly calling for the death of some current identities...it’s exciting but terrifying.
  • Know that slowing down and anchoring into their depth helps them to navigate the unknown...but it’s still sometimes hard amidst the noise.
  • Sense that there’s something available in the collective and collaborative spaces that will take them beyond what they could ever do on their own.
  • Trust that they’re held and guided by something bigger… even if they sometimes lose contact with it amidst the pressures of life.

The Power of Group + Who’s Invited

Who are the people you turn to when the stakes are high, when your work is changing, when the thing that’s holding you back feels like it’s deeply engrained and uncomfortable? 

This is a space that can actually hold your existential reckoning without abandoning those day to day commitments you’re carrying out. This is where you expand and hone your gifts, refine your superpowers, and put down what’s no longer yours to carry. You’re already showing up powerfully in the world. Together we’re ensuring you’re doing that in a way that feels deeply aligned and that includes your own joy and liberation.

This group is not just about the parallel play of doing your individual work while others do theirs. This is about co-creating a space of collective wisdom, where the new possibilities, paths and solutions emerge to meet the challenges and opportunities coming. 

This will be a curated group where you can find your peers and next trusted wisdom council. 

Do you have existing evolutionary relationships, people who you’ve traveled with, sweat with and transcended your past selves with? Bring your people, we’ll have such a great time.

Embark on this transformative journey with the ones you're already doing the work with.

  • Your mastermind buddies that you still talk to every Tuesday. 
  • The study group that you’re working through your next big vision with. 
  • Your company’s leadership team who are also your chosen family.
  • The women’s group you’ve been with since before you all had kids and started rocking your businesses. 

If you have a crew of sacred others who would love to deepen, expand and skyrocket together, let’s be in touch.

“I have done my fair share of trainings, facilitated group processes and 1:1 coaching work and the combination offered in LEAD feels to me like something that brings together the benefits of all of these into one program. There is diversity and novelty but without a compromise on deep personal focus and reflection. LEAD was a fantastic experience for me and I leave having made great progress and also with a bunch of new friends and connections for my forward journey!”

- Lucy Rist, LEAD Participant

 

What's in each Module:

All eight modules include several learning and practice sessions in video or audio format. They’re broken up into short pieces to make it easy to engage and progress through the learning and application.

 

Module 1: Designing Impact

What we cover: Here we will establish your Impact Statement, which acts and the customized container or arena that will be your focus for the duration of the program. We’ll walk through the elements of designing your Impact Statement, including clearly articulating what you want to make happen, the deepest why that’s driving your vision as well as who you ultimately need to become in order to make it so.

How it weaves through the program: Each element of your Impact Statement will be fleshed out and applied to your Personal Leadership Development Plan and will inform what you focus on in practice and application throughout each component.

 

Module 2: Personal Leadership Development Plan 

What we cover: This is where you’ll establish the core elements of your inner and outer work. Starting with your Impact Statement, you’ll be supported in establishing a path, practices and exercises that aid you in realizing your ‘what’s next’ vision, while developing the capabilities you most want to embody.

How it weaves through the program: Your Personal Leadership Development Plan will hold your work. Each module will contribute to the refinement, iteration and execution of your plan. You’ll also be sharing your plan with your small group and with me and collectively we will contribute to your development and what you’re carrying out.

Module 3: Integral Perspectives

What we cover: This module draws on the Quadrants lens from the Integral Framework, created by Ken Wilber and woven through the Integral Coaching ®  methodology, we’ll use it in a specific and targeted way to assess and advance your initiatives.

How it weaves through the program: We'll use it to see where you may have unknowingly focused your personal and professional development in the past, and what new areas you'd benefit from taking into account as you go forward to better advance your growth and initiatives.

Module 4: Practices + Exercises

What we cover: The two core elements that run through the program are inner and outer work or personal development and professional (or initiative) advancement. This module digs into creating practices and exercises that really support what you’re up to.

How it weaves through the program:
At the beginning of the program, the practices will be designed for you, both in forms of exercises that you’re all doing, as well as customized practices offered during your coaching sessions. As we travel along, you’ll begin to design your own and your colleagues. This module supports your accuracy in determining what is called for.

Module 5: Change + Resistance

What we cover: Like it or not, resistance is a natural and predictable part of creating change. Part of what’s powerful about having a coach and doing work in a group is that there is challenge and support when you start to bump up against limits, edges and long standing patterns. This module goes far beyond that. We unpack the mechanisms of resistance and then apply that analyses to your unique ways and challenges. 

How it weaves through the program:  This module comes at a point in the program where you’ve been doing some good work, progressively making strides at realizing your Impact Statement and will have likely pumped into the more entrenched patterns you feel limited by. It’s designed to bring compassion and relief with a highly practical and supported way forward.

Module 6: Cycles + Seasons

What we cover: No program would be complete without contemplating the nature of nature herself! We look at life, growth and death cycles through the lens of seasons and apply them to the territory you’re working within as your progress with your Impact Statement.

How it weaves through the program:
There will come a point in this program when you really gain momentum where you need it the most. Things will open up, shift, sink in, click. And with this, new visions, forms, iterations will emerge. This module will help you to locate where you are, what’s sticking, what needs to evolve.

Module 7: Communities of Practice

What we cover: Here we’ll investigate the ways in which interdependencies contribute to, advance or thwart what we’re up to. This is an exploration of what you need, what you have to give and how to establish containers that enable ongoing and deepening impact. Even if you’re an introvert or prefer working and living in a more solo capacity, this module is designed to help you identify how to best give, receive and co-create.

How it weaves through the program: Throughout the program you’ll be developing relational resources, networks and communities of practice. This module explicitly anchors what you’ve been doing, what’s working or not as well as what to consider as you move beyond the program.

Module 8: Integration + Completion

What we cover: The program invites you into depth, nuance, intimacy and an expansion of who you know yourself to be. This module is about bringing appropriate reverence to you, your journey and what you’ve accomplished. It offers formal practices to complete and integrate the work that you’ve been doing, the relationships and community you’ve developed and the container you’ve contributed to. 

How it weaves through the program: It ties up the threads of the program so that you’re truly registering what’s transpired. It recognizes and honours your growth and development and offers an opportunity to craft your own path forward beyond our time together.

The first cohort to experience the LEAD program just completed.
Here’s what some had to say...

 

"Working with Chela was one of the most treasured and enriching experiences I've had on my journey of bringing my work out into the world.  She's my doula, in that sense, providing such deep level birth support for my work in the world. Chela was able to draw to the surface experiences that were deeply embedded, and often nebulous and unarticulated in me, and bring them to consciousness in a way that made it possible for me to engage with these deep patterns and begin to transform them.  She facilitates this process with such grace, wisdom, and depth of experience, too, that you know she does this work herself, and in her own life, too.  I'm so grateful to know her, and know I'll continue to be enriched by her presence in my life."
- Karine Bell

"LEAD has been nothing less than transformation rocket fuel for me! When I joined I was at a turning point in life, knowing what I wanted and that success in moving forward was going to require a different level of inner clarity and outer action than I could muster alone. I wanted deep reflection on my ways and struggles while being held and supported by a trusted other. Yet I also wanted to do this kind of work while interacting with others who shared some of my visions and longings. As a result of the collective nature of LEAD I have had the chance for both. I have had the chance to learn new skills and explore whole new territories of professional and personal life that left alone on my own individual path of progress would have been missed."
- Lucy Rist

“It feels so special to be a part of a group that 'gets me' and helps me to wrestle with my challenges and rise to my fullest potential. I feel seen and heard and loved for exactly who I am and honoured and encouraged to bring my unique gift to the world. Chela is so masterful at coaching and diving underneath to get to the heart of the matter. Her skillset and ability to hold space is superb. She is kindhearted, deep, laser-focused, funny funny funny, and she's amazing at helping you bring your gifts to the world. Highly recommend the LEAD Coaching Program if you are feeling called into something deeper, something greater, something uniquely you and wish to have the support and guidance to help you along your path as you grow, stretch, and become.”
- Jane Middlehurst

“LEAD is a vessel. A place to land. A place to hold you. A place to journey to, from, and with. My work in LEAD has seen me grow in my business, in my spiritual practice, and in my ability to communicate and facilitate growth in my community. LEAD has helped me step into the physical body I want, the mental state I need, and the emotional space I crave. The work Chela and her team do through metaphor and wordscape is playful, inquisitive. and challenging. Through my work with Chela, and the LEAD community I have pushed my edges, shaped my Impact Roadmap and developed my LEADership plan. Best place to incubate, germinate, challenge, and be challenged!”
- Jenna Verhoeven

"When I read the invitation to the LEAD program something in my heart lifted as I knew it offered what I was needing. I was not let down. It has been an amazing and supportive container to find nurturance, camaraderie, and the right amount of push as I grow, expand and reach out beyond my edges in my life's work and calling."
- Vie Davis

“I had high expectations and they have been far exceeded. Content delivery is as I thought but Chela's delivery style, combined with Bonnie's seamless organisation and support has meant that I feel really sound and safe to explore and do the work.”
- Phoebe Maroulis

“I love my small group, I love the larger group - so many talented, creative, wise, funny women that really helped me feel at home and know that I could be seen and heard and valued just as I was. That I didn’t have to achieve a goal or prove myself. That I could really unfold together with all of you, and that was what was so incredibly healing and what allowed me to go on the journey.”
- Valerie Hunter

“My experience in LEAD has been life changing! I came in with specific work hopes and goals, and what I got was the tools I've needed to get there. I feel like I was trying to hammer in a nail with a screwdriver...and now I've learned how to use a hammer. LEAD has been exactly what I've needed to grow as a person and as a leader...but I didn't know that this was what I needed.”
- Lisa Kilgour

"Within just 3 months of working with Chela the impact on my life has been transformational.  I have come on leaps and bounds in terms of the practical clarity I was hoping for. I can clearly articulate that the purpose I want to bring forth into the world is to create a fairer, wiser and kinder world, to actively dismantle systems of oppression and imagine new ways of living that serve all people and planet. I have a sense of what this actually looks like in terms of my work and I’ve begun to take concrete actions in this new purpose. It's not only my inner world that has shifted but my actual external reality. Before working with Chela even articulating this purpose would have seemed impossibly big and any possibility of moving forward with this purpose would have been blocked by  “who am I to” thoughts. But now somehow it not only feels achievable but exciting and real.  

There’s a real magic to how Chela works. She is able to put words to things you’ve never quite been able to grasp. She attends to both inner and outer worlds and is able to design ways forward that make real, tangible shifts both in your psyche and in your life. And she was able to shine a light on things that I’d never been able to see, suggest where I might be closing down possibilities or keeping myself small and illuminate a new way of being where fulfilling my purpose is not only possible but inevitable.

But beyond the practical clarity I’ve found (which in itself has been life transforming) something happened that I didn’t expect. Through Chela’s witnessing and honouring of all the parts of me, I was able to fall deeper in love with the parts of myself that I had always seen as negative, useless or shameful. Rather than fighting them, overcoming them or getting rid of them, I have begun to integrate them in a way that has made living my purpose even more possible. In this way, I think she helped me find not just what I wanted, but what I truly need on the deepest, most profound soul level - a deep knowing and acceptance of who I am now in the knowing that I am already becoming who I want to be. 

On reflection the most accurate way I can describe my experience with Chela is as a liberation. A liberation from the questions and confusions that have kept me stuck for many years, a liberation from the inclination to play small and safe and perhaps above all a liberation from the tyranny of feeling like I have to have it “all figured out” now. 

I deeply wish that anyone who wishes for more clarity, purpose or joy in their lives - finds Chela."

When my internal and external landscape told me it was time to up the ante, double down on my divine dharma, and follow direction straight into the heart of a mindbending paradox - I found myself knocking on Chela's door. I was weary, a bit ragged and cautious. There were caveats, mythic tests and fail safes that she essentially sailed through. Then, I promptly sank into a chair across from her (metaphorically), in exhaustion, and spelled it out in the plainest speak I could.

Chela then did what she does, what she continues to do for me, which is blow my fucking hair back.

This woman gets it. I mean, down to the bone marrow, don't pass Go and skip the spiritual bypass bullshit, she GETS it. More, she can hold it. She met all of what I am working with - which as the leader of an underground social change movement that is working in and from the feminine in a culture ill equipped to face and bioremediate the feminine wound in all its manifestations, there is a lot going on here. She is grounded and clear, fierce and funny, spot on in her metaphors, unrelenting in her calls to accountability and unflagging in her support.

I've been in recovery for over 30 years - what I call soul recovery. I do the work because it's mine to do, because I want to, because it's joyful as well as my responsibility. Yet working with Chela has brought a new layer to this work that I'm not certain I've experienced before - a living divine intermediary who I'm pretty certain has got my back all the way to the end.

If you want to do a caliber of work that will pivot you both inward and toward your future; if you want to show the fuck up for what you came here to do and be (be and do, it's the same really) then this is your woman. Be prepared for it to disrupt what you think to surface what your soul or being needs.

We need to be prepared for these times, because these are the times we are alive in. That is no small task. I'm fairly certain that Chela has the bat phone of the people who are rising to the demands of these times, and then some."

Ultimately, your group will be assigned. The process to get there will be co-created. You’ll have an opportunity to answer questions to help us best match you and if you come with people you know, you can request to be placed in a group together.

The content, as well as the online collective space are hosted on Kajabi. It will host any video, workbooks, downloads as well as communication/instruction. It has a separate community section which is a private space to connect with others. We will NOT have a Facebook group. Kajabi offers an app that you can download on your phone if that's preferable to computer where you can check in when you like.

It’s important that you make it to the Collective Emergent Labs live. If you’re unable to make any of those live, this is not the right program for you. If you can make most of them but have an immovable scheduling conflict, please share this on your application and we’ll discern together if this is right timing and fit.

That’s the plan. The next program is not yet scheduled. If you want to be notified of future offerings or other opportunities to work together, subscribe to my mailing list here.

All modules are pre-recorded. The following are live and hosted on Zoom: Collective Emergent Labs, Small Group Coaching and 1-on-1 Coaching. Components of the Collective Emergent Labs will be recorded, to re-watch and reference, however small group breakout exercises that occur will not be. Coaching Sessions will be recorded.

Yes. The worksheets that accompany the 8 modules will be printable. Your Personal Leadership Development Plan will live in an iterating google doc, which you can print as well.

Yes! the program includes TWO 1:1 Sessions. 

The first 1:1 sessions will be early November and the second mid-January. These 1:1 sessions are staggered between the group sessions and content in a way that will enable you to get started with the material and the group, get traction and work with the content and practices and then drop into those one on one spaces to support what's unfolding at a time where you've got lots you've been working with as well as space ahead of you to integrate and implement what we cover together.

Our wonderful program host, Bonnie, will be available for all customer support and needs related to registration and payment, platform navigation, technology and scheduling. You will be given a process and guidelines for navigating challenges you may experience along the way so that you know where to go and how to access what you need. 1-on-1 coaching or developmental support with Chela is not available beyond the specified sessions offered.

Yes! If you apply by August 10th, you’re eligible for an eight month payment plan of $525/mo. You may also choose a payment plan of 5 monthly payments of $840. There are no additional fees linked to the payment plan. We want to ensure that this is accessible for people who are facing a variety of financial realities. If you do have the means to pay-in-full, 10% of your tuition will be applied to the scholarship for a fellow participant.

There are no refunds. By registering and committing to the program, you’re committing to full payment.

Yes. We are offering $20,000 in full and partial scholarships to  Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Colour and single mothers. We highly encourage you to apply if you’re working with and contributing to vulnerable and marginalized people on issues of social or environmental justice, but that focus for your work and leadership is not a requirement for scholarship eligibility. Applications for scholarships will be accepted until August 28. To apply for a scholarship, please click here.

You can expect to invest 2 - 5 hours per week. There will be weeks that are more intensive and others that are lighter. This estimate includes our live time together in various forms as well as your individual work and practice.

Yes. Share where you’re at in the application form and we’ll determine right fit together.  Mastery and potential – we all have great potential, but mastery takes time to develop. If you know you’re on a path to bringing forward your greatest work, but you might be closer to the beginning of it, you’re still welcome. Besides, maybe if you’re so used to holding different perspectives, visioning and doing your work, you don’t fully see your own greatness.
