Welcome to the launch of the Leadership Development Coaching program. Each cohort is led by Andrea Fruhling, and open to emerging leaders all over the world. Space is limited, please read the details carefully before signing up, and schedule a complimentary discovery call with Andrea if you have questions.

Are you ready?

You’re ready to make a difference in the work you do. You’re finding your footing in your leadership role, or leading from within the team you’re on, and are ready to take the next step in your career. You know continuous learning and career progression are important, but it can be hard to know where, and how to start. You naturally support your friends and colleagues, but sometimes feel like you don’t know what to say, and wish you had some better ways to help people find their way forward, as well as your own.

Join a cohort

This Leadership Development program will help you clarify who you are, and the conditions you need to thrive in the work you do. Over the course of 4 months you will learn easy to apply strategies to help you have better conversations with the people around you, while also increasing your overall sense of self, so you can lead with authenticity, and confidence. With a people-first approach to leadership, you will gain new tools and approaches to help you put theories and research-based strategies into action while simultaneously learning about yourself. Join a small cohort of like-minded professionals, build your network, and learn together in this group coaching program. Draw on the shared knowledge and experiences of your group, and develop your skills as a leader through small group conversations and opportunities for connection.

Schedule a discovery call and see if this is the right next step for you.

Meet Andrea


Andrea Fruhling

Hi I’m Andrea! I’m a Professional Certified Coach (International Coaching Federation), the Founding Director of Doubleknot Works, and a Certified Organizational Coach. I teach organizational coaching and a career coaching masterclass through the University of British Columbia, and am the global ambassador for the International Coaching Federation Career Coaching Community of Practice. I’ve spent most of my life finding ways to support the people around me from individual coaching conversations to leadership roles and facilitation. I love translating complex concepts into practical and engaging conversations, and have an expertise in creative thinking, strengths-based learning, and team engagement. I love seeing the people I connect with learn more about who they are, and gain confidence as they take that knowledge and apply it to their lives at home, and at work. I have spoken for conferences, career development associations, organizations, and client groups all over the world, and work closely with Subject-Matter Experts in the Career Development field (one of them I even call Dad!). The hope-based programs I have developed and co-teach have brought career focused professionals together globally, and continue to increase hopefulness around the world.

Hear from others...

Getting a second wind

Previous group coaching participant

"Participating in a series of group coaching sessions was one of the most effective exercises I have completed as of late. These sessions helped to propel me forward and changed my perspective on the direction of my life. Andrea is thoughtful, kind, and asked challenging questions that stirred up a second wind for my journey! I now feel as though I have a fully equipped “toolbox” that I can utilize in my everyday life as I make decisions and adventure on — both individually and professionally. Don’t hesitate; say yes - jump in with both feet and enjoy the personal development process!"

Trying something new

Previous group coaching participant

"Coaching with Andrea was amazing. She encourages you to ask deep questions and really challenge the way you were thinking. I went in not knowing what I was getting myself into, and not realizing that I would leave having changed. Part of me didn't want to grow or learn—that's painful!— but the safe space of the group encouraged me to try. I didn't feel like I had to be or do anything, but with the group's encouragement I saw how beautiful and vibrant my life could be if I stepped out of my comfort zone. And we were doing it together. I learnt more about myself than I ever knew before. I don't want to lose this passion."

This is your moment!

Rebecca McCarthy, Canadian Career Development Foundation

"Andrea is one of the most articulate, and accomplished coaches I know and if you have the time or opportunity to take advantage of learning directly from her, this is your moment!"

A career transformed

Erin James, Musician & Fashion Designer

"I absolutely loved my sessions with Andrea and my career totally transformed after working with her. She asked all the right questions and helped me to find the answers that I already had within myself without ever telling me what to do. I came away with a clear and organized perspective with practical strategies to achieve what I wanted. Since our time together, I was able to come up with a unique trajectory which has been totally funded for the next three years and I have had so many amazing opportunities that would not have come about had I not had Andrea’s help. I highly recommend her in every respect!"
