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


Embrace Your Uniqueness to Freely Create the Life You Are Meant to Live.

Darren Stehle Headshot 20Nov19

I’m Darren Stehle, a life-long seeker of the wisdom to help myself and thus others overcome personal struggles and inequality.

My journey has been about learning to love and accept myself without conditions. I have translated this self-examination into coaching, writing, and on my show, the Think Queerly Podcast, where I share my evolving ideas about how we can create a more loving and accepting world for everyone and to document the unique social and cultural leadership that queer people offer humanity.

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

In my work as a coach, I help my clients get clarity about their challenges to understand specifically the beliefs, habits, or behaviours that are creating limitations in their lives. Limitations or conditions of any kind are a lack of freedom, and without freedom, there can be no personal transformation. Once we have clarity, the next step is increasing your focus to see the bigger picture of where you want to go, and finally, supporting you to create your own ‘meaningful strategies’ to get to create 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 inside of you β€” your truth β€” that is when you will live 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.
