Welcome to the Circle

Compassionate Leaders Circle provides programs to accelerate purposeful career change, facilitate compassionate leadership mastery and provide an effective approach to heart-centered professional coaching conversations. 

Compassionate Leaders care about the world they will leave behind. They have a personal purpose, acknowledge our universal interconnectedness and use their influence to make a positive impact on others and the planet.

Everyone has the potential to be a compassionate leader. 



Compassion fuels positive change.

Balancing compassion for others with self-compassion is the platform for all our professional development programs and we advance compassionate methods of leadership that integrate the head with the heart.

Our vision: We see a compassionate world where we are all valued and celebrated for our humanity, dreams, differences, and ingenuity.
