Leadership Training

Effective leaders are made, not born. It takes more than just innate skill in order to work and grow together. Your leadership team will get the skills and insights needed for the next stage of success.


"Caneel brings both the intellectual firepower and emotional mastery needed to transform the performance of your high caliber team. Caneel helped me find my own authentic style of leadership, which improved my performance, my relationships and how happy I felt every day."

— Toni Moyes, COO, Montoux


Leadership Workshops

Caneel offers workshops on core startup leadership skills including:

  • Increasing leadership power
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Engendering accountability
  • Gender & diversity
  • Culture building

In addition to new leadership skills, Caneel will also help leadership to grow through better understanding of themselves and their peers, and a capacity to run the greater bandwidth necessary to handle the challenges and opportunities to come. She offers custom workshops upon request, inspiration, or as needs emerge within your organization.


"Caneel had a way to pierce through my own bullsh*t in a way that was good for me. We were doing the work, not talking about it. I was challenged with empathy but zero complacency."

— Jean Sini, CTO, Cadre


Executive Team Offsites

Some conversations are better had in-person -- and some meetings are better held offsite. When it’s time to get real, get aligned, make decisions, or become a better operating team, Caneel and a partner facilitator will design a bespoke offsite for your team.

It cuts to the core of what you need by ensuring that everybody’s time is exceptionally well used. Through masterful facilitation, she creates a ‘container’ so effective that past grievances and withholds can be cleared in a way that builds report rather than resentment.


"The cofounder team offsite we did with Caneel is the best money we've ever spent!"

— Prophet Walker, Founder and CEO, Upwell Real Estate


Leadership & Management Skills

Companies set goals, from revenue to hiring to growth to development. In any given year, some goals get met and some never materialize, but leadership almost always focuses on doing more. Action, in other words, is the understandable place that leaders look to see what went wrong.

Caneel will zoom in on the specific trainable skills and mindsets that your team or organization needs to design a custom learning experience that speaks the language of your company. She ensures the training is integrated into the way your team is operating, so feedback and continued growth can occur as everyone transitions back to the day-to-day work. Teams are left with a strong sense of how mission critical continued learning is to keeping the company nimble, fast, and sustainable.

She has designed and lead bespoke trainings on topics such as:

  • Management
  • Direct Reports
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Effective Delegation
  • Innovation and Creativity
  • Strategic Thinking
  • Negotiations
  • Gender and Diversity
  • Accountability
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Communication & Conflict
  • Organizational Culture
  • Creativity & Innovation
  • Design Thinking

"Our executive team offsite with Caneel was the most productive day we've ever had together as a team. It will have such an amazing impact on how we go forward as leaders individually and together."

— Ariel Kaye, Founder & CEO, Parachute Home
