Hi there, my name is Cassandra Goodman.
I'm a former global executive turned leadership coach.
Authentic, inspiring leadership is tricky business - but we don't have it go it alone. I help busy, big-hearted leaders feel more authentically empowered.
Throughout my senior leadership career, I relied on the support of coaches to help me stay sane, take good care of myself, get back on track and like the person I was being at work, and at home.
Today, I love supporting leaders to activate more of their innate, unique potential.
IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO LOVE WHAT YOU DO
Unless you also love who you're being while you do it.
And it's impossible to love who you're being at work, if you're not being yourself.
Leaders today face a unique set of challenges. From the outside, it can look like you have it all together. But inside, it's a very different story.
As your authentic leadership coach, I’m here to help.
Leaders need more support
Being a leader today is incredibly challenging. We're navigating situations and conversations we have never had to deal with before, in a complex ever-shifting landscape
The 'new normal' demands new capabilities - and new levels of support.
"The point is not to become a leader. The point is to become yourself."
Our coaching sessions be a brave space to speak honestly, explore your inner world - and get the support you need.
"All these years, I thought I was taking good care of myself. Now, I understand that I was not taking care of that little girl inside of me that felt that she needed to be perfect to be enough."

I'll meet you where you're at
My coaching blends a range of modalities to meet you where you're at.
I'll guide you to understand your essence - who you really are at your core - and get to know your different ‘parts’, building a strong inner team.
I'll hold space for you to think afresh about challenges, illuminate constraints in your thinking and forge new pathways forwards through the formation of liberating assumptions.
