About Us

Nedra Chandler













You are looking for more spark and satisfaction in your personal and professional life. You are the one with the power to discover your own trail and walk it — creating the best possible outcomes. That’s your thing.

What I do is support and guide from the side with solid, adaptable process. I hold up a mirror so you can see and experience where you want to take your own development next. That’s my thing. Plus I work with an experienced team of professionals who make sure you get the value you came here for.

We can help you navigate conflict and change and grow wiser and more resourceful in your own authentic ways while you are at it. See what clients are saying here.

The reason I serve in this field because I love the aliveness it brings out everywhere — in clients I work with, in communities and worksites, and in me.

It’s evident to me now that humanity and this planet will be better off when everyone from age 3 to 100+ has more and more ease allowing and navigating conflict and change.
