What if...

Your business, relationships, and life

were EASIER?

What would it be like for you, to be FREE from any of the following "usual suspects" that plague even the most successful entrepreneurs, executives, and leaders?

- feeling inadequate, "I'm just not good enough"... despite your success?

- feeling anxious, on edge, and insecure?

- having chronic and repetitive headaches and stiffness from emotional tensions?

- knowing you're sabotaging yourself, but not knowing how to stop?

I've always had a passion for helping others. This led me to pursue training in many different techniques and modalities (in addition to my "natural nerdiness").  

I started working as an Alcohol and Addictions counsellor* in 1990, which led to working with adults, youth, and families; business owners, executives, and leaders, and my work extended to helping improve communication and relationships in corporate and business settings. I was the director of counselling for funeral homes and cemeteries,  and dealt with sex offenders and abuse victims. Since 1999, I added study, practice and eventually teaching  of Acupressure, Oriental Medicine, Meditation, Conversational Intelligence, Type Theory, and Medical Qigong Therapy. 

In 2015, I developed and started offering a unique training and coaching program to help people develop and apply their Emotional Intelligence and Relationships. I've now adapted and refined that program to the needs of entrepreneurs, executives and leaders. 

My mission and purpose is to help the people who are in influential roles - the entrepreneurs, executives, and leaders who touch the lives of thousands - to "up their inner game", so that

"Know yourself"

Such advice seems so simple...

But the question then becomes...

"HOW do I do THAT?"

The Inner Journey of Developing Wisdom

What Others Say


When I first met Zander at a business training course, I wasn't particularly looking for training or a new coach in that moment. However, after an initial conversation with him, I could recognize Zander's authenticity and integrity as a teacher, and the wide range of training and tools he could bring to bear that could be transformational for me. I had a few areas where I was feeling particularly stuck and his course promised to address them.

His capacity to listen, guide, and inspire, drawing from his own personal experiences and skill, kept our meetings full of vitality, even when I was skeptical and challenging at times.

Working with Zander not only delivered a new set of skills and self-awareness for me. It was a transformational combination along with my commitment to experiment, and I was able to break through to a new level in a few key areas as I had hoped.

I highly recommend Zander's course for those willing to roll up their sleeves, keep an open mind, jump in and actually have fun while learning incredibly valuable life skills.

To be heard, I think, is a rare gift in life. Not simply listened to, but truly heard and considered.

Often in our work together I’ve found myself uncertain as to what I’m trying to say, or of what’s truly bothering me.

This is, I think, when Alexander is at his best. A blend of exacting questions and insightful metaphor pulls the issue into focus and what follows is always an opportunity to explore myself more deeply - safely and without fear of judgement.

His guidance has had a profound influence in my journey of self discovery, revealing to me, finally, the true potential I hold within.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Zander’s method is his ‘whole person” approach to problem solving and treatment. Zander uses a wide repertoire of techniques, a number of which I was totally unfamiliar with and very skeptical of in the beginning.

As a chronic disbeliever, on more than one occasion I had to reconcile my skepticism with the positive results I achieved following our sessions. In the end, I developed not so much a faith in the specific methods and techniques which he used as much as a total and unwavering faith in Zander as a practitioner.

I came into Zander's Emotional Mastery Foundations Course with a mixture of curiosity and desperation.

There's only so long that one can struggle alone before you have to find another way.

The concepts and techniques Zander introduces here are deceptively simple, but profoundly valuable.

The one-on-one coaching calls feel like discussing things with a trusted friend. Zander is understanding and responsive, and willing to keep you on track when necessary. Put simply, he's just as invested in your well being as you are. In the past, I never spoke about what was bothering me, while desperately hoping someone would ask the right question so I COULD. 

As I progressed through the course, I could feel myself loosening up, able to release tensions (both mental and physical) that I barely knew were there.

We live in a world of "easy-fixes" and "lose 1700 pounds in eight minutes by blinking!" or other such silliness, so any skepticism is entirely understandable. However, I can speak to the fact that this works.

With Zander's guidance, the techniques helped me not only release stresses and blockages that affected every area of my life, but also helped me understand what caused them in the first place.
