"Aligned is the essential guide for any organization to reach its own highest potential" - Frances Hesselbein


Have you ever felt like
you were on a roll?

Everything seems to be going your way. Time slows, and you see everything clearly. You instinctively know what to do, and you have the profound feeling that you are on the right path.

This is what leadership coach Hortense le Gentil’s calls alignment: the congruence of who you are and what you think, feel, and love on a deep and fundamental level with what you do, say, and envision for your future. It’s about becoming more of yourself—and in so doing, transcending the limits you once thought were holding you back.
