    Create an achievable and sustainable plan to lead your “whole life“ in an integrated way so that all departments of your life are accounted for (mental and physical health, finances, caregiving, home, community etc.). Plus show up with a new, empowered energy as a leader.
  • Cultivate the specific habits of courage, resilience, grace, self love (to name a few) with personalized tactics… needed to fuel your rise on your life mountain towards your highest destiny
  • Identify your internal and external barriers and what you need to heal over; change your relationship with obstacles as divine interventions shaping you
  • Assess and re-build your community and various circles of influence that will support you to soar in your career and business

What is Whole Life Leadership?

Whole-Life leadership is a new paradigm of leadership that is the culmination of Claudia Chan life's work as a social entrepreneur, leadership author and curator of 600+ speakers and 200+ diversity, inclusion and culture sessions for her award-winning S.H.E Summit. She believes the traditional definition of leadership is one-dimensional, unsustainable, inaccessible to all and will delay our quest to true equity. In writing her NY Times celebrated book This Is How We Rise, she coined the term Whole-life leadership as a more accessible, whole-life integrated approach and gender-traits-balanced definition that is rooted in 13 pillars of leadership which include purpose, vision, faith, resilience, energy, productivity, humility, gratitude, grace, community, self-love, courage and mindfulness. Claudia believes by learning and rising as whole-life leaders--workplaces, communities and families will thrive.
