Executive coaching & CEO coaching
so you can lead in only the way you can

Why are you here?

team development

You are a leader looking for executive team leadership development and/or executive team coaching with Caneel’s Kickass team of executive coaches.

CEO Coaching

You are a CEO of a high growth company. The stakes are high and you need to scale fast. And you know you won’t get there by being like everyone else.

personal GROWTH

You crave growth and are here to learn about yourself and step fully into the leader you already are so you can create the life you want.

All of you is welcome here

You are in the right place if…

You’re sick of drama, of the same patterns playing out again and again.

You know things can feel easier, simpler than they do now – you’re just not sure how to get there.

You’re addicted to the thrill of getting better.

You want to win, and you define the rules of your own game.

And you are ready for a challenge, because you know that’s what it takes for you to bring your gifts to the world and make the mark you’re supposed to make.

I'm Caneel. I dare you to be fully alive.

I’m a founder, CEO and Executive Coach, mom, wife, podcaster, Ph.D. from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, former professor at Stanford University and the London School of Economics and Silicon Valley startup veteran.

I’m dedicated to helping you lead and succeed by being your most authentic, whole and masterful self.

I’m here to show you things you’ll never be able to unsee.

I’m here to invite you to see the world as for you.

I’m here to shift your mindset and change your thought patterns, so the only constraints you have are your vision and desires.

I’m here to be vulnerable with you, so you can be vulnerable with me, too.

And I’m here to challenge you to take on the powerful, awesome, sexy responsibility of leadership – which by the way, you already have.

Let’s create a life you love.

A podcast for the leader who wants to be fully alive

What if you were allowed to do anything you wanted? What would be possible? What if you were allowed to remove roadblocks, to turn challenges into strength, and to create a vision for your life that is so compelling you can’t help but make it real?

Allowed is a podcast, experience and adventure for anyone who sees themselves as a leader. It’s for the voracious learner, the self-help junkie, the high-achiever, the one who dances to the beat of their own drum.

On episodes of Allowed, grounded in my expertise as a CEO coach, I challenge you to shift your mindset and reveal patterns that get in your way. I give you an operating framework, a way of seeing the world you’ll never be able to unsee, so you can create the life you want.
