Calling in…

Your next expression of leadership

Your lasting legacy and impact

Your new ways of being and relating

What and how are you most called to lead?
This is your invitation to meet it.

  • A place of resonance...

    You want to bring your deepest, truest, most soul aligned gifts into the world, for the world.

    I’m here to support you in doing just that.

    LEAD is for you if (insight version)

LEAD is for you if

you feel resonance with…

  • Walking the Path of your Life's Work is about...

    …liberating your gifts, potential and genius to realize your calling and be in service to our world.

  • Being a Full Hearted Human of Wisdom...

    …Generosity, Depth, Curiosity, Purpose, Courage, Paradox, Drive, Vision, Power and Compassion.

  • Committing to Lead from your Whole Being...

    …ambitious and hungry to bring the soul of your work forth, knowing that nothing sacred has been sacrified.

  • Growing in Ways that Honour You...

    …your unfolding vision, and others, operating from a deep sense of sufficiency and sovereignty.

  • Cultivating Joyful Play and Intimacy...

    …with Life itself. Appreciating the mundane, seeking the hilarious, cultivating presence.

  • Seeking the place where you can...

    …show up in all your power and capacity, without being the one who needs to hold that space.

You’re here to make an impact.

You’re at the brink. Called to new depths, new heights. Your innovative and visionary spirit has beautiful work to do, and part of that work is redefining what success means to you, in this moment in time.

You know the impact you’re here to make isn’t going to happen by carrying forward what got you here, even though you’ve brought a ton of grit, capacity, courage and faith. There are new ways of seeing, new ways of being, new muscles to grow, and moves to make. You want wise and unwavering support, reflection and encouragement as you make these leaps.

You see the world as it could be and you want to contribute to that becoming. You are so over the extractive norms of work, business and leadership. You can sense the ‘what’s next’ of your legacy or body of work emerging and you don’t want to do it alone. You need help with the parts that are nebulous, the places you don’t have maps or models for and the patterns that you haven’t been able to shake on your own.

Finding the spaces and places that can truly meet and hold you…where you don’t inadvertently end up holding it together for lack of a trustable and nuanced container is…rare. And you need it…like yesterday.

Watch the LEAD Trailer

LEAD is a 6-month group-coaching program. It’s an incubator-meets-cauldron for becoming to hold and midwife your vision for impact.

Together, we meet what’s needed to truly unfurl and fulfill your calling.

This is an intentional weave of deep personal development and professional expression. It’s the place where you can align your inner and outer work to claim your life and leadership in whole and integrated ways. It’s the place where you will:

    • Embody new ways of being that are an expression of this next evolution you’ve been leaning toward.
    • Initiate and create your ‘what’s next’ vision and work. Practical, tangible outcomes and impact.
    • Honour the seasons you’re traveling through, personally, and in your work and mission.
    • Find and engage the people who are also up to brave and brilliant work, who want to gather in service of our co-evolution, individually and collectively.

    LEAD is the place where all of who you are gets to come play. 

    The ambitious and the weary. The powerhouse and the doubtful. The carefree spirit and the dedicated world-holder. The soloist and the one aching for community. The sovereign self-agent and the heart searching for directions. The depth seeker and the one who just wants a damn break.

    Here, you get to focus on traction and results while you explore your depths, unravel ancient patterns, put down any need to perform or get it right, while simultaneously embodying and expressing the powerful gifts only you can bring to bear.

    LEAD is where you roll up your sleeves, get to work, take action on that project or mission that’s been tugging at you. It’s where you define the success of your work from your soul’s call, not what’s been handed down in the cultural spell.

    It’s also where you put shit down. Including all those expectations to have it together and hold it for others. It’s where you confront what’s been holding you back or eluding you, the long held identities that need to go so that you can be more fully, truly who you are.

    You’re at the brink, on the edge. Called to deepen, leap, create and rise.

    • You're crossing the threshold...

      Transitions. New heights. Deeper call. Greater alignment. Leaning into the new, dancing in the unknown, manifesting tender and true visions, these thresholds can kick up all sorts of discomfort…

      Meet the edge (insights version)

    You might just experience…

    • A resurgence of old patterns or blocks.

      You thought you’d bloody well dealt with this already. New levels of consciousness and capacity, new places where change is unfurling, can activate the long held stories and struggles that will need tending. This is not a regression. It’s your evolution. Yes, again. But in new ways.

    • Feeling small, inadequate, wibbly/wobbly/woo.

      You might be like ‘wth’? I’m a powerhouse, where’s my courage? Where’s my grit? Why am I doubting myself in the most inane ways? Change is threatening, especially to your established identities. New heights always come with edges. Welcome to the boot-shaking. I’ve got you.

    • Expectations that feel crushing.

      The plight of the prodigy. When you’re someone who’s broken the mold, been first on the field, and ahead of their time, living through the messy in-between, the seasons of incubation, the ‘it-hasn’t-come-together-yet’ periods can feel panic-inducing. There’s a season for this. You can meet it with grace. 

    • Terror, disorientation or paralysis.

      “Will it work? Am I out to lunch? I can see pieces but not the whole, I can do some of it but not all of it.” Leading into the unknown, emerging future, especially when you don’t see maps or models of it being done in a way that aligns with your values and feels authentically resonant, can stir a lot of fear and confusion. We have tools to honour and move with it. 

    • Doubting the bigness of your vision or the truth of what you want.

      Unsure if you can really trust yourself, you hit that weird place of feeling both like you’re inflating yourself and what you’re capable of, while not giving yourself credit at all. Are you making things too big so that you can play small? Is it time for small bites, or big leaps with the wind turned up? Let’s find out.

    • Outward norms zapping your mojo.

      You have much you want to bring to this next season, but hustle, coercion and burnout culture got you feelin’ like there’s no way through. You want to do this in a way that deeply honours your timing and instincts and sometimes you feel like you’re going too fast, too slow or all wrong, the messages that inundate throw you off. Let’s find your flow.   

    • Emotionally taxing ups and downs.

      Unravelling the old, leaning into the new, challenging the status quo, hitting walls or roadblocks or having so much flood in fast can kick off the emotional roller coaster. Anger. Excitement. Fear. Joy. Confusion. Shame. Delight. Hope. All the things. Cultivating emotional resiliency, while also calibrating how much you ask of yourself during transitory times is the medicine. 

    • Loneliness at the top, while feeling out of your depth.

      You’re the one. The buck stops with you. When you’ve ‘made it’, be it in what you’ve built or been initiated through, there’s a lot you’re holding, maintaining, and responsible for. You know what it takes to birth new work, and don’t yet know what it’ll take to realize what’s calling you now. Finding others who know and understand this territory, who can receive, reflect and be real friends along the journey is something you’re aching for it. 

    • Seasonal flux and recalibration.

      What is being called for is different than you assumed. You’re plugging away with all the weight and work of ‘summer’ but a deep and open winter is calling. Or you’re trying to dive head first into the next new things, but autumn needs to have its way with you, shedding layers of what’s here. Let us get to know and heed all of the seasonal flux you’re moving through so that you can thrive through all of it.

    You want a place you can trust to hold you in all that is unfolding, where you will be met
    in all your brilliance + your edges.

    • "LEAD has been nothing less than transformation rocket fuel for me! When I joined I was at a turning point in life, knowing what I wanted and that success in moving forward was going to require a different level of inner clarity and outer action than I could muster alone. I wanted deep reflection on my ways and struggles while being held and supported by a trusted other. Yet I also wanted to do this kind of work while interacting with others who shared some of my visions and longings. As a result of the collective nature of LEAD I have had the chance for both. I have had the chance to learn new skills and explore whole new territories of professional and personal life that left alone on my own individual path of progress would have been missed."

    How the Program Works

    We start with designing your personal vision for change and impact. 

    You will be guided through creating an intimately customized Personal Leadership Development Plan that will hold your vision for how you want to grow as a human being, as well as the mission, project or body of work you’re focusing on for our time together. 

    You’ll receive personalized practices and a framework to discern the most pivotal and aligned action needed- and you’ll be supported and cheered on while you take them!

    We work together to establish, tend and embody what you’ve come here for. The growth edges you’re committed to and the new vision for impact you’re carrying out.

    We begin with a welcome call on Tuesday November 29.
    Download the calendar here.
    What’s Included in the program:

    6 Emergent Labs- Every month, for 6 months, we will have a 2-hour collective gathering on Zoom. This is where we work with the themes that are emerging as you each carry out your work in the program. These labs are a space of wisdom, play encouragement, and practical evolution. Every group is different and each individual has their own focus, needs and challenges arise through this program and process. You will have an opportunity to shape the content of these calls based on what’s most alive, salient and needed.

    5 Small Group Coaching Sessions – Each small group will consist of 5-6 people. These 2-hour sessions allow time for each person in the group receive targeted, customized coaching and support. Beyond hot seat, these smaller groups enable you to receive deep reflection and tangible support and direction with what you’re wrestling with. We also work with themes arising within the group. People often report that witnessing others being coached provides valuable insight and new possibilities they hadn’t yet considered for themselves. Groups rotate so that you can both cultivate connection and intimacy with others, while experiencing variety and range. 

    5 Guided Small Group Connections – Between Emergent Labs and Small Group Coaching Sessions, you’ll meet in small groups that will be peer led. You’ll be given guidance for these meetings so that, together, you will each advance your initiatives and the practices or bodies of work that are so dear to you.

    8 Learning Modules – Each module consists of multiple lessons and practices, designed to introduce, flesh out and integrate the work you’re doing in your Personal Leadership Development Plan, Emergent Labs and Coaching Sessions. You’ll be invited to engage with these recorded modules both individually or with others.

    Personal Leadership Development Plan – This is a living, evolving document that houses your work throughout the program. It’s a place to hold your ongoing program, practices, reflections and actions. This plan is not all up to you. It’s elegantly designed to hold you through the process and I will be reading and reviewing it before every coaching session. You will receive feedback and reflection that will radically advance what you’re developing – within your capacities and out in the world.

    Online Community Space – An ‘off-Facebook’ group (because I’m allergic to social media y’all). This is the place where you share, support and connect with your cohort throughout our six months together. There will be both guided reflection and discussion here as well as opportunities to reach out, offer and invite connection and support.

    *Optional* 6 Private Coaching Sessions – Choose your level of support. You can engage LEAD as a group program only, or you can apply to receive monthly 60 minute 1:1 Coaching Sessions with yours truly.

    • “Working with Chela has been one of the most transformational experiences of my life. That’s not just warm and fuzzy talk either...unpacking outdated patterns, understanding what gets in the way of me doing my thing, learning how I can relax more into my life, how I can support others in a sustainable way…Chela is the real deal...seriously...take this”

      Sharon Shelton, LEAD Participant

    • “Working with Chela was one of the most treasured and enriching experiences I’ve had on my journey of bringing my work out into the world. She’s my doula, in that sense, providing such deep level birth support for my work in the world. Chela was able to draw to the surface experiences that were deeply embedded, and often nebulous and unarticulated in me, and bring them to consciousness in a way that made it possible for me to engage with these deep patterns and begin to transform them. She facilitates this process with such grace, wisdom, and depth of experience, too, that you know she does this work herself, and in her own life, too. I’m so grateful to know her, and know I’ll continue to be enriched by her presence in my life.”

    The Power of Growing Together

    If the disruptions and uncertainty of the past few years have brought you even closer to what matters, revealed changes your heart is desperate for and ignited a fire that says: “It’s time”, let’s gather together and make it happen. 

    This is a space that can truly hold your existential reckoning without abandoning those day to day commitments you’re carrying out. This is where you hone your gifts, refine your vision, and expand your capacity. You’re already showing up powerfully in the world. Together we’re ensuring you’re doing that in a way that feels deeply aligned and that includes your own joy and liberation. Come and put down what’s no longer yours to carry and lift off!  

    We are co-creating a space of collective wisdom, where new possibilities, paths and solutions emerge to meet the challenges and opportunities coming. 

    This will be a curated group where you can find your peers and next trusted wisdom council. 

    Do you have existing evolutionary relationships, people who you’ve traveled with, sweat with and transcended your past selves with? Bring your people, we’ll have such a great time. (Contact us for team or group pricing for 3 or more people).

    What’s in Each Module

    All eight modules include several learning and practice sessions in video or audio format. They’re broken up into short pieces to make it easy to engage and progress through the learning and application.

    • Module 01

      Designing Impact

      What we cover: Here we establish your Impact Statement, which acts and the customized container or arena that will be your focus for the duration of the program. We walk through the elements of designing your Impact Statement, including clearly articulating what you want to make happen, the deepest why driving your vision, and who you ultimately need to become in order to make it so.

      How it weaves through the program: Each element of your Impact Statement is fleshed out and applied to your Personal Leadership Development Plan. It will inform what you focus on in practice and application throughout each component.

       “LEAD has been nothing less than transformation rocket fuel for me!”  — Lucy

    • Module 02

      Personal Leadership Development Plan

      What we cover: This is where you establish the core elements of your inner and outer work. Starting with your Impact Statement, you establish a path, practices and exercises that aid you in realizing your ‘what’s next’ vision, while you develop the capabilities you most want to embody. You’ll become aware of your Current Way of Being and create a New Way of Being that you’re called to grow into. 

      How it weaves through the program: Your Personal Leadership Development Plan will hold your work. Each module will contribute to the refinement, iteration and execution of your plan. You’ll share your plan with your small groups and with me and collectively we’ll contribute to your development and what you carry out.

      “My experience in LEAD has been life changing!” — Lisa Kilgour

    • Module 03

      Integral Perspectives

      What we cover: This module draws on the Quadrants lens from the Integral Framework, created by Ken Wilber and woven through the Integral Coaching®  methodology. We draw upon these perspectives to assess and advance your initiatives so that you approach your work in whole and integrated ways.  

      How it weaves through the program: You will identify where you have unknowingly focused your personal and professional development in the past, and what new areas you’d benefit from taking into account. As you go forward, you will consciously leverage your strengths while you advance your growth and initiatives.

      “LEAD invites each person to bring their all, and in return, this co-created space is ripe with transformative power.” — Maggy

    • Module 04

      Practices + Exercises

      What we cover: The two core elements that run through the program are inner and outer work or personal development and professional (or initiative) advancement. This module guides you to create practices and exercises that are customized, meet you where you are and take you where you want to go.

      How it weaves through the program: Throughout the program, you will receive coaching which will include personalized reflection, practices and exercises. This module helps you create your own, giving you exercises to come back to again and again. You will focus on the highest leverage places for fulfilling what you’re here to do. 

      “LEAD has changed my fucking life, because it’s helped me write a new story about my life, my work, what’s possible for myself as a creator.” — Karina

    • Module 05

      Change + Resistance

      What we cover: Like it or not, resistance is a natural and predictable part of change. The power of having a coach and doing work in a group is that there is challenge and support when you start to bump up against your limits, edges and long standing patterns. This module goes far beyond that. We unpack the mechanisms of resistance and then apply that analysis to your unique ways and challenges. 

      How it weaves through the program:  This module comes at a point in the program where you’ve been doing some good work, and progressively making strides to realize your Impact Statement. You will encounter the more entrenched patterns you feel limited by and this module is designed to bring compassion, relief and a highly practical and supportive way forward.

      “My resistance to momentum feels less daunting or overwhelming.” — Eva

    • Module 06

      Cycles + Seasons

      What we cover: No program would be complete without contemplating the nature of nature herself! We look at life, growth and death cycles through the lens of Seasonality. We explore the Seasons you’re in and passing through and apply them to the territory of your Impact Statement and Personal Leadership Development Plan.

      How it weaves through the program: There will come a point in this program when you really gain momentum where you need it the most. Things will open up, shift, sink in, click. And with this, new visions, forms, and iterations will emerge. This module will help you to locate where you are, what’s sticking, and what needs to evolve. This powerful lens helps to identify what is truly needed in your life and initiatives to meet and advance where you are. 

      “If I sit and look back at everything that’s shifted for me and everything that I’ve achieved, what price could I put on that? I couldn’t.” — Lucy

    • Module 07

      Communities of Practice

      What we cover: Here we’ll investigate the ways in which interdependencies contribute to, advance or thwart what you’re up to. This is an exploration of what you need, what you have to give and how to establish containers that enable ongoing and expanding impact. Even if you’re an introvert or prefer working and living in a more solo capacity, this module is designed to help you identify how to best give, receive and co-create.

      How it weaves through the program: Throughout the program you’ll be developing relational resources, networks and communities of practice. This module explicitly anchors what you’ve been doing and gives you targeted focus to develop long-standing relationships and communities to collaborate or co-create with beyond the program.

      “Working with Chela Davison has been one of the most transformational experiences of my life.” — Sharon

    • Module 08

      Integration + Completion

      What we cover: The program invites you into depth, nuance, intimacy and an expansion of who you know yourself to be. This module is about bringing appropriate reverence to you, your journey and what you’ve accomplished. It offers formal practices to complete and integrate the work that you’ve been doing, the relationships and community you’ve developed and the container you’ve contributed to. 

      How it weaves through the program: It ties up the threads of the program so that you’re truly registering what’s transpired. It recognizes and honours your growth and development and offers an opportunity to craft your own path forward beyond our time together. It also offers a framework that can be applied across your life for healthy completion and harvesting of efforts. 

      I’m so grateful for this course. The way the videos are designed, the reflection questions and the document are seamless.” — Eva

      • “LEAD is a vessel. A place to land. A place to hold you. A place to journey to, from, and with. My work in LEAD has seen me grow in my business, in my spiritual practice, and in my ability to communicate and facilitate growth in my community. LEAD has helped me step into the physical body I want, the mental state I need, and the emotional space I crave. The work Chela and her team do through metaphor and wordscape is playful, inquisitive. and challenging. Through my work with Chela, and the LEAD community I have pushed my edges, shaped my Impact Roadmap and developed my LEADership plan. Best place to incubate, germinate, challenge, and be challenged!”

      Are you called to LEAD?

      This program is for you if…

      You want to own and harness your brilliance, and grow in ways you’ve been longing for but haven’t quite been able to make happen…yet

      You have a project, business, mission or body of work you want to take to new heights. The whispers of innovation are calling you. It’s time for your next evolution. Within and without. 

      You don’t see a lot of maps or models, living embodied examples, of how you truly want to live and lead. You’re disillusioned with a lot of the tactics and assumptions out there, but also hopeful that there’s a new way. 

      You’re seeking to have an impact, to alleviate suffering and contribute to society through your work and service. You care deeply about this world and feel this is a pivotal moment to rise and lead. 

      You’re longing for fun, play, nourishment, connection and laughter. Yes, you take your life’s work seriously, and you seriously want to have a good time while doing it. 

      You’re experiencing loneliness or isolation in your leadership and desire to connect with other brilliant humans who get you, who are doing brave and culture changing work. 

      Your vision for what’s next is out of your comfort zone or experience. You want to play in an emergent, collaborative space and need a high caliber container and trustable, initiated colleagues to fully relax and know you’ll be met. 

      You value and envision a future where the principle of care reorganizes the fabric of culture. You believe that extractive systems and norms around how we work need to be revolutionized so that this world works for everybody. You’re here to play your part. 

      You have worked with coaches, therapists, healers and are no stranger to dark nights of soulful reckoning. You’ve been initiated and are listening for the soul’s song and your next evolution.

      You want to collaborate and be in collective engagement without losing yourself or your own unique calling and autonomy. You sense that there’s something in the collective and collaborative spaces that will take you beyond what you could ever do on your own. You want to find out what. 

      You’re experiencing transition and expansion that’s calling for the death of some current identities…it’s exciting but uncomfortable. 

      You know that you need practices and support that help you to anchor into your depths and navigate the unknown, which can be hard amidst the noise. 

      You trust that you’re held and guided by something bigger…even if you sometimes lose contact with it when the pressures and disruptions of life are heightened. 

      If you’re feeling the call, I’d love to connect with you. Let’s do our brilliant work together on the leading edge.

      What graduates have to say…

      “I love my small group, I love the larger group – so many talented, creative, wise, funny women that really helped me feel at home and know that I could be seen and heard and valued just as I was. That I didn’t have to achieve a goal or prove myself. That I could really unfold together with all of you, and that was what was so incredibly healing and what allowed me to go on the journey.”

      — Valerie Hunter

      “It feels so special to be a part of a group that ‘gets me’ and helps me to wrestle with my challenges and rise to my fullest potential. I feel seen and heard and loved for exactly who I am and honoured and encouraged to bring my unique gift to the world. Chela is so masterful at coaching and diving underneath to get to the heart of the matter. Her skillset and ability to hold space is superb. She is kindhearted, deep, laser-focused, funny funny funny, and she’s amazing at helping you bring your gifts to the world. Highly recommend the LEAD Coaching Program if you are feeling called into something deeper, something greater, something uniquely you and wish to have the support and guidance to help you along your path as you grow, stretch, and become.”
      – Jane Middlehurst

      LEAD FAQ

      The minimum number to run the program is 12, the maximum is 30 (for 1:1 coaching, there are only 10 spots). The program usually runs with around 20 people. What’s most important is that the people are the right fit for the program and that the program is right for the people.

      We will be gathering for content and community on Kajabi. We will NOT have a Facebook group. Kajabi offers an app that you can download on your phone if that's preferable to a computer where you can check into the community space on the go.
      There are many components of this program that are live: Our Welcome Call, Collective Emergent Labs, Small Group Coaching and 1:1 Coaching (if you choose that option). This is a depth program, where the live time is crucial to receive the full benefits of the program (as well as contribute to the collective space).

You will be given a process and guidelines for navigating challenges you may experience along the way so that you know where to go and how to access what you need. 1-on-1 coaching or developmental support with Chela is not available beyond the specified sessions offered and registered for.
      Yes! Our standard payment plan is as follows: An initial deposit of 10% of the tuition fee, the remaining balance can be distributed over 6 months. If you know this is the program for you, but need an extended payment plan to make it work, please indicate that in your application.
      Deposit is nonrefundable. If you withdraw from the program before it begins, you’ll receive a refund for any fees paid, less the deposit. Once the program begins, there are no refunds.
      Yes. We are offering $10,000 toward full and partial scholarships, prioritizing Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Colour and single mothers. We highly encourage you to apply if you’re working with and contributing to vulnerable and marginalized people on issues of social or environmental justice, but that focus for your work and leadership is not a requirement for scholarship eligibility. Applications for scholarships will be accepted until Friday November 18, 2022. To apply for a scholarship, please visit:
      You can expect to invest 2 - 5 hours per week. There will be weeks that are more intensive and others that are lighter. This estimate includes our live time together in various forms as well as your individual work and practice. This does not include the projects or initiatives you decide to take on as a part of your impact focus as those scales are totally up to you and variable.
      Yes. Share where you’re at in the application form and we’ll determine the right fit together. Embodiment and potential – we all have great potential, but embodiment takes time to develop. If you know you’re on a path to bringing forward your greatest work, but you might be closer to the beginning of it, you’re still welcome to apply. Diversity of experience, context and time on the path make for a rich space. Besides, maybe if you’re so used to holding different perspectives, visioning and doing your work, you don’t fully see your own greatness.
      You will not have to dumb yourself down. I have worked with clients who have decades of human development experience and spiritual practice, who are teachers, leaders, creatives and program developers. I've worked with CEOs, business founders with multi-million dollar companies, and authors and industry disruptors with massive followings. What I've discovered along the way is that people who have grown and built in ways that are deep, rare or 'at the top' struggle to find practitioners who can truly meet them in all their depth and capacity. Folks who 'aren't joiners' tend to be holding way too much and have difficulty finding and relaxing into depth containers that can truly meet them. This can be excruciating and lonely for you. Especially if new visions are calling that are asking for the death of the very identities that have gotten you to where you are. This is the space to do that powerful and tender work.
