The Heart Leadership Program is a six-month conscious leadership experience that will help you get clear on who you really are, how you want to show up in the world, and what's possible when you let go of your perceived limits and align your energy toward living your greatest potential. This program inspires massive shifts in our participants because we jump into the deep end with our first retreat, build our strength through practice, learning and mutual support, and then put ourselves to the test in an extraordinary adventure to cap it all off.

Our Program Structure

  • A 3-day kickoff retreat in the Thousand Islands, Canada in late May/early June (dates TBC based on the group's availability)
  • A community of dynamic peers on the journey who will push you, inspire you, and encourage you to grow
  • Monthly 1-on-1 coaching sessions with LJ to remove obstacles, get support and stay in action
  • Powerful virtual biweekly group coaching sessions
  • A week-long all-inclusive graduation retreat in Colombia in November 2024 that will test your limits, deepen your breakthroughs and show you just how powerful you are

Your Coach

Hi! I'm LJ. I became an executive leadership coach to help ambitious women to live and lead from conviction, joy and abundance rather than fear, scarcity and "how other people did it".

Like so many other women, I was successful in my career, but I struggled with perfectionism, impostor syndrome and time scarcity. I couldn't fully enjoy my success because I was too busy thinking about what was next or what others thought. Through my burnout and coaching journey, I was reminded that the magic is already in me, and I can create a life in alignment with my values and priorities—and be successful beyond my wildest dreams. Now I coach women like me to unearth and overcome of the beliefs and behaviours that keep us grinding, and shift to living joyful, aligned, connected lives and create ripple effects in our communities, and the world. 

The Heart Leadership Program is a deep, mindful plunge into personal growth, aligned leadership and soul connection.
