Coaching for Founders, CEOs
& Executives

Executive coaching isn’t just about your business, it’s about you. When you’ve reached a high level of success and realized that no strategy or business idea can take you any further, you’re poised for real growth.  

The next step is the one that can move you from the leader you are today to the one you need to be tomorrow, but it involves facing the single biggest obstacle in your life: you.

The Forward Fearless Program partners with you in designing your life and path in a way that supports you living up to your full potential. Join Caneel and a powerful community of peers in a supportive growth environment.

The Forward Fearless community will challenge you to reach farther and deeper than you might on your own. You are allowed to become the next version of yourself. Register now.


Founders and C-Level Executives need to be aligned with their business strategy, but they also need to be aligned in their relationships with each other.

Understanding the unspoken (and unseen) dynamics that drive leadership can create an executive team that is high functioning, more authentic and accountable, more efficient, and capable of both greater autonomy and smarter collaboration.

There is actually a wisdom to our boredom, our impatience, our frustration. These feelings create change and innovation - these feelings mean that you are an entrepreneur. It’s what you do with them now that matters.

You are on the verge of a radical shift in the way you lead...


Ignite your authentic power and leadership to uplevel your company, without adding work or more to-do’s.

Return to a life where you spend more time leading and creating instead of managing and reacting.

Inspire your team through authentic leadership, so they can talk less and do more.

Scale up without losing the spirit of innovation and play and the very culture that made your company unique.

Bring the full power of your vision to the world.

Connect. Grow. Nourish.
