Inspired, Sustainable Leadership Starts with the Body

Permission to Thrive is a 12-week group-coaching program for women leaders, visionaries and change-makers. The course teaches leadership and personal sustainability tools that are crucial for women who want to maximize the energy they have available to pursue their passion.  Permission to Thrive is designed to take you out of the box of traditional leadership models and into the wisdom of your body. In the course, you will cultivate a series of practical habits at home and at work (that really work), so that you can THRIVE.

Welcome. I’m SO glad you’re here.

But let me guess… you have something else you ought to be doing. Right?

This is the paradox.

I get it. I’m a woman, and a change-maker, like you.

While there’s nothing more appealing than the idea of living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle while getting everything important done, it can feel like you’d have to be Superwoman in order to have it all.

I know. There are calls to make, meetings to attend, reports to complete, money to make, maybe even kids to feed and a household to run. In all of that, “sustainable” is a buzzword that hopefully will take care of itself if you just keep plodding along… and THRIVING sounds like new-age magic that probably can’t co-exist with the reality of your intense and important mission.

I know that the last thing you want to hear me say is “it’s simpler than you think,” because you’ve heard that before, and it hasn’t been.

But that’s what I’m here for. To talk to you about things that might sound out of reach… AND to show the very practical, somewhat surprising, and very accessible path to creating them.

My goal is to help you get EVEN MORE COMMITTED to YOUR DESIRE than your skepticism and to help you forge a path to THRIVING. As a coach, I teach practical magic and provide a TON of moral support: equal parts BIG empathy and TOUGH love. Oh yeah, AND a healthy dose of Joy. But we’ll get to that!

If you’re interested in having that kind of support in your corner, keep reading. You’re in the right place.


What do I mean by THRIVING?

What if I were to tell you that healthy, sustainable lifestyle was about WAY more than simply checking the box of exercising a few times a week and drinking a green smoothie?

You want it ALL right?

You want to maintain your commitment to your important projects, while at the same time feeling fully alive. You want to feel less stressed, more empowered, physically healthier, emotionally happier… and frankly, more in control of your life. You want to spend quality time with the people you love and feel the energy of excitement run through your body as you walk down the street jazzed about the day to come.

And that’s what this course is about. In fact, I’d like to hold you accountable to ALL the pleasures you’ve been denying yourself in life. And more.

Because THAT’s exactly what it takes to cultivate the kind of energy YOU need to Thrive as a passionate woman in this world.

That’s right… it isn’t about waiting till the time when all your other commitments are done. It’s about taking empowered action toward your own well being as an integral PART of your critical path to success.

If you’re feeling a little nervous reading this, it’s normal. It’s incredibly hard for us women to trust that both are possible. And it’s even harder for us to consider putting ourselves first.  But the truth is: It’s actually your commitment to YOURSELF that will make ALL the difference in your capacity to sustain yourself as a leader, visionary or change-maker over time.

And if you’ve found your way to this page and you DON’T see your self as those things yet… I have a hunch there’s a lot more of YOU to uncover.


My Personal Invitation to You:

In Permission to Thrive, I will teach you all the basics of an energizing, healthy, sustainable lifestyle that is SO effective and fulfilling that you’ll nearly forget the excuses you had for avoiding it in the past. If you join me on the path, I commit to helping you go-to-bat for your own daily well-being… so that you can serve your mission at your highest capacity for years to come.

And, I’ll show you a few every-day magic tricks I’ve learned about THRIVING along the way.


By the way, there is one more really important thing you should know.

MOST health and wellness focused programs, great as they may be, fail to account for something that is CRUCIAL for your thriving. They are designed to address the external symptoms, not the deeper causes of your fatigue.

Of course, this is important. It helps you get back on track in the moment. But it’s also why you might find yourself saying, “I tried that already…” when your habits fall off a few months later. These programs rarely produce the deeper shifts that lead to long-term sustainability.


Your solution: Permission to Thrive

Permission to Thrive is specifically designed to help you FILL IN the CRUCIAL MISSING PIECE that isn’t covered in standard leadership training protocols OR in typical health and wellness programs. AND, as you move through the course, will build the platform for a sustainable, thriving LIFESTYLE that you can maintain over time… while learning to recognize the ENERGY LEAKS in your system that could derail you.

If that sounds appealing, have a look at the course details below and sign up to get started today.

Praise, Kudos & Thank You’s From a Few Women I Love

In case you’re curious about what it’s like to work with me, check out what some of my past clients have to say about my support.


I was introduced to LeeAnn Mallorie about two years ago when I was asked to attend leadership development and LeeAnn was my coach. I fought her up until I met her. I pushed, she hung in there with me while I worked thru some very challenging issues. I respect LeeAnn and value her guidance. She helped me thru some very difficult issues. I trust her and respect her work. She is a shiny light in this most difficult world.  ~ Danielle Phillips, Vice-President of Human Resources, Garlock Sealing Products, USA


I met LeeAnn at a challenging point in my life. Outwardly, I would have been considered successful. However, I was struggling inside.  Through coaching with LeeAnn, I made dramatic shifts in my life. Her support and guidance were integral in helping me see how my actions were getting me exactly what I didn’t want – pushing people away, feeling like a victim, and living in fear.  

By meeting me where I was and holding me accountable in a compassionate way, LeeAnn helped equip me to make different and better choices. Now I am more centered than I ever have been, with more joy in my life. LeeAnn helped me to recognize that I was missing the present moment, which I now recognize as a beautiful gift.   ~ Danielle Scaturro, Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, New York, NY


Thank YOU LeeAnn for your support in our coaching sessions.  When I talk to you, it’s like me saying, LeeAnn, I can’t get through this brick wall.  And you tell me, have you considered it may be made of something else? And so I try, OK, this is a wall of cotton, and I walk right through it.  Amazing! ~ Aryani Ong, Board Chair, Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy, MD, USA


My session with LeeAnn Mallorie was restorative, balanced, and quite helpful.  I am a certified massage therapist/health professional so I am quite selective about who I will trust to work with me. LeeAnn brings a natural intuition and professionalism to her work that was evident to me within the first few minutes of our session.  The goals we set at the onset of our session were fulfilled. I sincerely feel comfortable recommending her work. ~ Polly St. John-Hughes, Biopro Consultant, San Rafael, CA, USA


What the MEN are Saying 

Yes! In other functions, I do also support men leaders who want to thrive. As you can imagine, it looks a little different. But the challenges they face aren’t that different than your own. Here’s what THEY have to say about working with me…


LeeAnn kept me growing in one of the most difficult times of my life.  As a coach, LeeAnn combines in depth knowledge of human behavior, and intellectual brilliance, authenticity, emotional connectedness, and empathy; along with a gift for listening at multiple levels. Her ability to bring who she is to what she does made her extremely effective in coaching me through a major health crisis. ~ Roger Ford, Los Angeles, CA, USA


“LeeAnn’s coaching style was very direct yet compassionate. Through her coaching, I learned the real meaning of empathy and opening my heart while improving my work life balance. She also helped me in defining who is the leader that I most want to be, re-sparking my passion and gearing up for a role change.” ~ Cetin Duransoy, Fortune 200 Financial Institution, USA


I can’t say enough about the value LeeAnn Mallorie has added to my professional development journey. Over the past nine months, she has worked to help me better understand my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities for growth, and most importantly, the tendencies that were holding me back. She’s revolutionized the lens through which I see myself — driving me to approach professional challenges in new, more productive and more satisfying ways — for both me and my organization. Her style has prompted valuable self reflection and a personal evolution that’s yielded tools and perspectives to improve me as a leader, colleague and person. She has a keen ability to listen carefully, probe honestly and dissect issues in a way that promotes self discovery. And she’s not afraid to challenge me when I fall into my old traps! LeeAnn’s guidance has broadened my perspective, heightened my awareness and improved my confidence — and for that I’m deeply grateful. ~Joseph Stefko, President/CEO CGR, USA


LeeAnn slowly and skillfully, through insightful questions and caring comments, lifted a mirror to me, focusing my attention inward to find my part in a very difficult relationship. Before our work together I felt boxed-in. Always patient, LeeAnn was instrumental in helping me pivot my thoughts, feelings and actions. It has been a game-changer for me. ~ Bill Darden, Chief Engineer, US Government Agency, MD, USA
