But 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 boost your emotional fitness, break free from daily burnout, and feel energized and confident to lead through uncertainty with clarity, compassion, and authenticity.

Fuel yourself to lead better!

Being a leader is hard right now

  • The constant pace of uncertainty threatens your and your team's well-being and productivity
  • You want to energize and motivate people on your team, but you don't know how
  • The pressure to be strong and positive for everyone else is crushing
  • Stress levels are high and you're struggling to keep your team members engaged
  • You feel burned out and overwhelmed, but can't find time for self-care

You are not alone!

According to recent studies:

  • 66% of managers suffer from burnout
  • 59% of leaders report feeling overworked and overwhelmed
  • 84% of managers say they feel responsible for their employees' burnout but don't know how to help them

But you don't have to struggle (even when things are challenging)

The skills and practical takeaways you'll learn in Leading Through Change are already helping thousands of leaders break free from burnout, reduce overwhelm and stress, and fuel their teams to thrive, even amidst uncertainty.

Join them now!

Leading Through Change kicks off on March 21st.

Hi, I'm Nataly

Keynote speaker on emotional fitness and leadership and best-selling author of Happier Now and The Awesome Human Project.

nataly on yellow chair - smallI 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 and lead with compassion, clarity, and openness.

You can't give what you don't have

If you want to be a true servant leader, you need to fuel yourself first. 

I hope you will join me for Leading Through Change and FUEL YOURSELF SO YOU CAN LEAD BETTER!

My work has been featured in hundreds of leading publications, including

How Leading Through Change will help you right now

You will learn how to use the 5 Core Emotional Fitness Skills to create a practical blueprint for leading through uncertainty and challenges:

  • Practice emotional fitness skills to avoid burnout and fuel your energy daily — on your own and with your team members
  • Course-correct your brain's negativity bias and fear of uncertainty to reduce stress, doubt, and overwhelm
  • Communicate with compassion and clarity, even during toughest challenges

  • Strengthen your emotional awareness and openness, both of which help avoid unnecessary energy drain and make you a more effective leader
  • Develop a regular gratitude and self-reflection practice to help you bring your best capacity to your work and colleagues
  • Connect with and learn from other leaders going through similar challenges
