Human-Hearted Leadership & Personal Transformation Coaching for Queer-Thinking People


When you freely love who you are, you can freely create the life you want.

Darren Stehle Headshot 20Nov19

I’m Darren Stehle and freely loving who you are is the essence of my coaching philosophy. If you’re like me and want to make a difference in the world, you’ll understand that change starts with the responsibility of ‘knowing thyself’ first.

This website is the place where I get to share my evolving insights as a coach and thought-leader through an intersection of self-examination, queerness, understanding how our brains work through neuroscience and my study and contemplation of the Tao Te Ching.

Two Principles that Support My Coaching Philosophy:

  1. Lead by example: Lead yourself with the utmost integrity, authenticity, and transparency, as if everyone is watching.
  2. Give people better ways to think and ways to think more critically.

My mission is to help you see the world differently, to lead from your uniqueness, and to create solutions that positively improve humanity.

Personal Transformation Coaching

I help my clients get clarity about their challenges and problems so that they can understand how their beliefs, habits, or behaviours are creating limitations in their lives. Limitations of any kind are a lack of freedom and without freedom, there can be no personal transformation. Once you have clarity about your challenges, you can focus on where you want to go and how to create your own meaningful strategies to get the life you want.

We give away our power if we try to fit into the expectations of the status quo. This constricts our authenticity and well-being. When you stop putting emphasis on what others think of you and focus instead on living out what’s already inside of you, that is when you will live freely and authentically.

Darren is a leadership coach in Toronto, Canada who helps his clients to connect and embrace their uniqueness and freely create the life they want. He writes and podcasts regularly about Queer Leadership.
