Vancouver Business Coach

What does courage have to do with business coaching and leadership development?



If I could say there’s one thing that determines success, it would be courage. Whether it’s success in your personal or professional life or in your business, one thing for certain, is that you need to have courage to move past your fears, to go beyond what you know and to deal with the uncertainty of change that exists all around us.

When I work with you, whether in your own business or as part of a team, I create space for you to lean in to the discomfort that growth brings in order for you to tap into the opportunities that open up when you have the courage to do so.

I call this the Courage Space. 

Dagmar Relling, CPC, PCC

“I believe that obstacles can be an opportunity for growth and transformation.”

I’ve always been an adventure seeker and student of life and I’m truly inspired by those who are able to pick themselves back up after great adversity and create a new future. I’ve personally had to recreate myself through adversity, choosing to grow and transform on my own journey. And that’s what led me to the work I do today.

For over 15 years, I have worked with leaders locally and internationally at all different levels of crisis, business models and personalities, coming alongside them through their change, growth and transformation as they take the next step in reaching their full potential. My focus and methodology for change is to help create more courageous individuals, as I believe in courage as a catalyst for change, pushing us to act, move forward, and power through challenges.

I am a purpose and values-led leadership coach, conflict coach, facilitator, entrepreneur and change maker.

How my clients achieve results

My approach is one of compassionate and focused encouragement, where my clients are held accountable to the goals they set together. I partner with leaders in an in-depth process of discovery and change, that’s designed to facilitate the creation and development of personal, professional and organizational goals and develop and carry out a strategy and plan for achieving those goals.

My specialty is being a supportive and consistent force in helping my clients face their challenges head on, with courage and vulnerability, and then grow and develop because of them. I also have a unique approach and specialized skillset in conflict resolution, helping my clients face and use their conflict for long term sustainable change. And the gift I leave my clients is confidence and courage to tackle the unknown and whatever comes their way.

“Dagmar is someone you can depend on to help guide you higher in all aspects of your life.”

When I’m not at work

Alongside my coaching work, I’m a full-time mom, #1 fan of my 10-year-old son and I have a wonderful partner with two young children. Just like many of you, I have to navigate the juggle of parenting, partnership, business ownership and work! 

My true passion is mountain biking and I recently became a Level 1 mountain bike instructor & guide. You’ll also find me trail running, spending most of my spare time outdoors camping and exploring and living the most fulfilled, purposeful and values led life I can.
