We are a coaching and leadership development firm that works with CEOs, founders, and leadership teams who want to create companies as great as their products. We focus on both the inner dynamics of leadership as well as the practical skills needed to be effective amidst the growing complexity, pressure and flow of information.


Julie Engel

Leadership Coach

I help my clients access their natural wisdom, skill, resilience and creativity to better navigate the fast moving, uncertain, often challenging and demanding world in which they live and work with greater ease and effectiveness and sustain themselves in the process.

I facilitate people in leading from wherever they sit in their organization, so that they can maximize their contribution and their experience of meaningful work.   

I take an “action-learning” approach in my work with clients – Your work (and life!) become the laboratory for your development.

I draw on a rich array of resources including: emotional intelligence, mindful awareness, practical neuroscience, somatics and frameworks for building effective and satisfying relationships.
