We support mission-driven leaders with organizational leadership, personal alignment, and sustainable leadership.

Humans need to live in harmony with our environment, so we have a home for the next 1000 years and beyond. 

We care about creating cultures that honor and support a definition of leadership that is inclusive and holistic, humble, vulnerable, more collaborative, more transparent and transformational.

With 25-plus years of coaching, consulting, facilitation and training, Conditioning Leaders can help you and your organization be top performing.

We support family leaders, community and network leaders, business leaders, non-profit leaders.

Humans need to feel and experience a sense of belonging.



Organizations profoundly shape individuals and communities.

Organizations are the institutional structures in which people gather. We are a social species and belonging to networks, groups and organizations gives meaning to our lives. At Conditioning Leaders we are committed to working with networks, teams and organizations to make them the most visionary, sustainable and aligned environments they can be so that they serve and support individuals, communities and the world in which they are connected.


Leadership qualities and skills are mastered over time.

Leadership is learned. Change is possible when we cultivate the capacity to observe patterns and practice new habits.

We understand that leaders learn in different ways. Therefore we use a combination of approaches so our clients can embody what they’re learning.


Coaching is a profession that invites life-long learning.

There are many ways to become a coach. At Conditioning Leaders, we introduce and mentor clients to coaching as a career, introduce somatic coaching principles and practices, supervise coaches who already have a practice, guide coaches to clarify their offer, teach coaches how to design an outcomes-based approach and develop a fee structure to increase their income.
