About Chantal

Chantal is compelled by people’s stories, curious about their motivations, in awe of their brilliance. And, she’s fascinated that we all have different experiences, baggage, and aspirations yet are so frequently constrained by the same thing: ourselves. We limit and doubt ourselves so effortlessly that it becomes second nature. We’re not quite sure how else to be.
Chantal spent her almost 20-years helping people live and lead in the ways they most aspire – in spite of themselves. And now she’s on a mission to get leaders out of their own way so they can access their greatest potential and profoundly and positively change their slice of the world.
Chantal has supported senior leaders in all sectors – non-profit, corporate, and academia. She is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, certified Immunity to Change Facilitator, certified Strengths Deployment Inventory facilitator, and a LMAP 360 Assessment administrator. Chantal has received extensive training from Cambridge Leadership Associates on Adaptive Leadership, from Coaches Rising on Adult Development, and from Echoing Green on the Work on Purpose curriculum. She also co-authored the Stanford Social Innovation Review article Freeing the Social Entrepreneur and earned a BA from Georgetown University and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business.

Chantal’s approach and energy was exactly what I needed in a coach. She is simultaneously compassionate and stern. She is your constant cheerleader with empathy, but also able to hold you accountable or call you out if you need to dig deeper or face something. She is incredibly talented at figuring out the bigger issue behind the smaller issue presented. All the while, you know she has your back and your best interest at heart.


Chantal Below is an artist when coaching and has an innate ability to ask the right questions while holding up a mirror to allow the client to make meaning for themselves. I consider her my leadership fairy godmother because like in The Wizard of Oz, she’s allowed me to grapple with some of my biggest struggles and has proven time and time again that I’ve had the answers inside me all along!


Working with Chantal Below has been transformative for my ability to lead. She is a thought partner who pushes you think beyond self-constructed limitations, opens your eyes to new possibilities, and cheers you on as you practice new skills. Her pragmatism and action-oriented approach make every session useful and immediately applicable.
