More Balance,
Less Stress and
High Performance

Want to discover how to be at your best
even with all the demands and expectations?


There is a better way to be successful than what we've been taught or told all our lives. 

Being busy, overwhelmed and working long hours, while sacrificing your well-being and family time, is simply not necessary.

In fact, it's keeping you from being your very best and the success you desire most.


Possibilities become realities when we shift our thinking and habits. Through the choices we make each day, we are reinforcing or removing the limits of our personal success. We can choose to change our thoughts and behaviours, rather than spinning our wheels or simply settling for the way it is.

It starts with an understanding that our resilience, happiness and well-being — positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and achievement — fuel our performance and success. 

Because it is really hard to be your best when you are feeling overwhelmed and running on empty, scattered and pulled in so many directions, or always feeling worried about letting someone down.

It's building skills like resilience, mindfulness and focus that are needed more than ever in a fast-paced changing world. While you might not be able to control what's happening around you, you do have control over how you think about it and respond to what's happening.

You always have a choice.

Curious to see if we are the right fit to work together?

“Working with Stacey has allowed me to learn how to prioritize my most important work, build boundaries around my workday."

Since working with her I’ve felt less overwhelmed and more productive in my days.

I came into the program needing to find a way to not have work “suck the life out of me”, and now I can say I have energy into the evening to deal with my family life as well. The content/advice/coaching Stacey gave will last with me for the duration of my career and spill over into my life. I highly recommend The Balanced Leader membership!”

"I've been able to take strategies and make them actionable to reduce my overall stress levels, and this has made me more effective at work and keep my personal and work balance in check."

Stacey's coaching sessions are a complete departure from what I expected. Instead of the typical "What is wrong with you?" or "What can I help you fix?" approach I have seen with by managers and mentors in the past, these sessions immediately began to focus on "What are you good at?" and "What do you value?". This laid the foundation for identifying what I want from meaningful career, and also life in general. With Stacey's help, I've been able to take strategies and make them actionable to reduce my overall stress levels, and this has made me more effective at work and keep my personal and work balance in check.

Tyler Koyl, Senior Leader

"I am far more balanced, I feel calmer, and I am way less overwhelmed in my day."

“If I had tried to navigate and support my team through this difficult time with the pandemic, the way I was operating a few months ago, I am certain that I wouldn’t have shown up as my best for them like I am now. When I first started, I was feeling so off-balance with life. Now, I feel so much better! I am far more balanced, I feel calmer, and I am way less overwhelmed in my day. This allows me to see more clearly the things that matter the most and focus my time and energy on those things, and I feel proud of myself and what I have done each day. I am not carrying things with me and am now able to enjoy my home and family time.”

Kendra, Director
