Leading Through Change

A 7-week comprehensive program to empower you with science-backed skills to successful lead through uncertainty and change

You are a leader if you positively impact other people's capacity to thrive!

nataly new headshotBut you can only do it if you first positively impact your own capacity to thrive.

In this 7-week program with Nataly Kogan, you will gain science-backed skills and a toolkit of simple yet surprisingly powerful practices to thrive through change and confidently lead your team through uncertainty -- without burning out.

Change is hard. Leading through change is harder.

  • The human brain hates change and brings up stress, fear and resistance in response to it
  • Constant overwhelm and fear-based thinking limit your ability to lead with clarity and compassion
  • Servant leadership often turns into martyr leadership when you're facing a challenge, often leading to burnout
  • You want to motivate your team, but you have no idea how to do it authentically and meaningfully

But change can become an opportunity to grow, thrive, and create a deep sense of meaning and connection!

The science-backed skills, mindset shifts, and simple yet surprisingly powerful practices you'll learn in Leading Through Change are already helping thousands of leaders thrive through change and lead their teams with greater clarity, confidence, and mindset of possibility!

The Leading Through Change Promise

When you join the Leading Through Change program, we promise that you’ll learn simple yet surprisingly powerful practices to:

1 Icon

Create a fueling inner narrative to lead you through fear, uncertainty, and vulnerability inherent in change

2 Icon

Energize and motivate yourself and your team in authentic and meaningful ways (no positive pep-talks required)

3 Icon

Strengthen your emotional fitness, the skill of handling change with less struggle by creating a supportive relationship with yourself, your thoughts, and emotions

Here's how leaders from every industry and position are benefitting from Leading Through Change

Hi, I'm Nataly

nataly on floorBest-selling author, international keynote speaker, and positive change catalyst

I spent 15 years leading teams at large companies like Microsoft and McKinsey and 5 technology startups, including some I founded ... 

... but because I neglected my emotional fitness, I burned out.

My burnout taught me a painful lesson: 

While I always intended to be a servant leader, I was a martyr leader who couldn't offer compassion, clarity, or psychological safety to my teams.

I went on to develop the 5 Core Emotional Fitness Skills, which I've since taught to hundreds of thousands of people, leaders, and teams to help them struggle less and thrive more.

In Leading Through Change, I've brought together the best of my research, skills, and highly effective, tangible practices to help you boost your emotional fitness, flip the script on change, and lead yourself and your team with greater clarity, confidence, and mindset of possibility!

Change is an invitation to grow, thrive, and imagine what's possible. Let's do it together!

Nataly has been profiled and her work featured in hundreds of leading publications, including
