WAYFINDING EXECUTIVE COACHING
Power is at the center of everything
you do as a heart-centered leader —
even if you (un)consciously deny it, cede it, or loathe it
Friend, here are some honest truths:
Becoming masterful with power as a leader is key to creating cascades of benefit through systems
while also being resourced and joyful.
My world-class approach trains leaders
to alchemize power and conduct
Power that Serves the Whole.
Let me help you find your way.I'D LOVE TO STEP IN
"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."
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 Wayfinding executive coaching, help you develop your embodied power literacy and wayfinding skills to create the life and leadership path that brings you most alive while benefitting the whole in this time of collective transformation. In the process, you learn to navigate from your inner wisdom to 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.
My coaching approach is internationally-recognized.
It is principled, adaptive, and emergent.
Growth and transformation are not linear so my approach to coaching isn’t either.
Instead, I 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, I give you new awareness and skills to hone your ability to wayfind toward what’s calling you.
I help you adapt, respond, and adjust throughout this growth process in a dynamic way through three key phases:
Whichever coaching package you choose my tracking abilities and library of tools are world-class.
This allows me to deliver interventions and results at an often surprising pace compared to most coaches, therapists, and healers.
Every coaching relationship I engage begins with 2 custom, proprietary Wayfinding assessments to support my ability to intimately track your journey, as well as provide custom weekly practices to advance you between sessions in relevant ways.
Power Assessment for Leaders
Chart the master keys of your growth path.
This assessment gives a detailed map of your gifts, shadows, and blindspots in how you conduct power across the 36 most common types of power at work via our proprietary framework & assessment.
Wayfinding Skills & Power Patterns Assessment
See your navigation skills, energy sources, and energy leaks.
This assessment establishes a baseline of your wayfinding skills and the expression of power across your outer life to immediately illuminate the main blocks and flows for us to prioritize our work together.
By mapping these core patterns upfront, we can immediately dive into the deep end of the work and start creating expansive levels of momentum and clarity.
Also, my aim is to help you embody a profound understanding of yourself, the mechanics of power, and wayfinding skills to ultimately make our work together unnecessary. Translation: I'm here to liberate you — not make you dependent on me.
I help you access your wisdom to become your greater self and a leader for Power that Serves the Whole.
Wayfinding Executive Coaching is a growth accelerator.
I help you get to new levels not just as a leader, 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
I work with multidimensional leaders who make magic.
Already an excellent leader for the greater good,
you love to grow in all areas,
this is not your first self-awareness rodeo,
you value excellence, rigor, wellbeing, humanity, and wholeness,
and you're ready to expand to a new level.
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 together may range into areas covered by therapy, I do not work with individuals experiencing depression, psychological illness, or active addiction to drugs or alcohol. I 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.

"Wayfinding coaching is for leaders who want a sensei." —IM
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
"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
“There are no words to describe the magic and mastery that Larissa is gifted with." —MF
I 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
