Embrace your power to steward a new way
What is Wayfinding?
Wayfinding is the skill of listening to your inner truth
and your outer environment to best navigate power in each moment.
In coaching, we help you develop your Wayfinding skills to create the life and leadership path that brings you most alive. In the process, you learn to navigate from your inner wisdom and facilitate flow, aliveness, clarity, confidence, and greater Power that Serves the Whole.
Wayfinding coaching activates your power and creative sovereignty in connection with all scales of life.
Power is at the center of everything we do.
Becoming masterful with power and how it works opens you to whole new octaves of capacity.
"I learned that power is one of the most present dynamics in this job.
It was super powerful to learn all the different forms of power (mastery power, decision making power, etc). I’d never heard it like that EVER. Clarifying all the ways in which power intersects at work and throws people for a loop is data that a lot of people don’t have about why the shadow is coming out in all these ways. So understanding where someone’s shadow is coming up can help disarm it whether that be a client, an Associate, or a fellow Partner." —CG
Our coaching approach is internationally-recognized.
It is principled, adaptive, and emergent
Growth and transformation are not linear so our approach to coaching isn’t either. Instead, we approach coaching with principles sourced from nature and life that have worked for all our clients, while meeting you exactly where you are in this unique moment. From the start, we give you new awareness and skills to hone your ability to wayfind towards what’s calling you.
We help you adapt, respond, and adjust throughout this growth process in a dynamic way through three key phases:
Whichever coaching package you choose our team’s tracking abilities are world-class.
This often allows us to deliver interventions and results at a surprising pace compared to most coaches, therapists, and healers.
Every coaching relationship we enter into comes with these three custom, proprietary assessments to support our ability to intimately track your journey, as well as provide custom weekly practices to advance you between sessions in relevant ways.
1 // Wayfinding Skills & Power Landscape Self-Assessment
Establishes baseline of your wayfinding skills and the expression of power across your outer life to illuminate blocks and flows
2 // Power Constellation Assessment
Illuminates your gifts in how you inhabit Power that Serves the Whole across 30 types of power, as well as your blindspots and opportunities to develop greater balance.
3 // Personal Shadow Power Patterns Assessment
Identifies the main patterns of your shadow architecture across 60 forms of shadow for us to engage with quickly and effectively.
By putting in this time up front surfacing these core patterns in you, we are prepared to immediately dive into the deep end of the work and get you momentum and clarity.
Also, our aim is to help you embody a profound understanding of yourself, the mechanics of power, and wayfinding skills to make our work together unnecessary.
We help you access your wisdom to become your greater self and a leader for Power that Serves the Whole.
"The layers are continuing to shed as I feel lighter and lighter each day. I’ve had several moments where I think to myself. 'I don’t think I could have survived that without the support I received from you.' Thank you. I know there is still processing underway but I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for the way you showed up for me through this." —BLS
Most assessment tools feel unhelpful and simplify one’s personal experience, but I really enjoyed your assessments and the way in which all the questions had a deep wisdom to them. They helped me see myself more clearly, so we could launch to the heart of the matter.” —MK
“I’m just marveling at the massive shift that happened so quickly. It’s completely remarkable to think about how quickly the evolution happened and what got unlocked in just our first few sessions. Thanks for being such a powerhouse and teaching me so much in sensing and clarifying my path as a leader!” —KK
Wayfinding coaching is a growth accelerator.
We help you get to new levels not just at work,
but as a whole person.
"I can’t imagine not having you on the journey.
I didn’t know what I was missing until I had it. I thought 'Oh, I have a therapist, my family, trainer, and friends, and…' Nope! I was missing you." —ST
We work with clients who are Life Athletes.
Already an excellent leader, you love to grow and you value high performance, transformation, and being deeply human.
You are driven to serve at a time when organizations and societies are evolving, asking leaders to have greater people intelligence, systems understanding, and self-awareness.
You are a stand for the dignity and greatness of all types of people, championing our collective potential with courage.
You are curious, highly motivated, and lead with your heart — seeking to balance the interplay of your intellect and intuition ever more.
You are seeking a guide with wisdom to enable you to access your deeper gifts and power to serve the whole.
While some of our work ranges into areas covered by therapy, we do not work with individuals experiencing depression, psychological illness, or active addiction to drugs or alcohol. We respect the skill and training required to support individuals facing such circumstances and recommend working with a trained therapist or rehab specialist in these cases.
We deliver life-changing value.
"I think the amount of time —be it as a woman, a woman of color— that I spent reacting to what feels like a shadow force in response to a power dynamic (my shadow or theirs) was probably over 50% of my mental load at work.
That doesn’t mean 50% more billable hours, but rather the effectualness. By harnessing this new skillset and understanding what is at play, it's creating an enormous amount of space for Mastery Power that I am desperately craving and is the tool I needed to create the boundaries I need to reach another level in this job. —CG
