Chantal Below


For the past 15 years of her career, Chantal has coached leaders to get out of their own way so they can access their greatest strengths and change their slice of the world. She has worked with executives to help them authentically connect with and develop their people, has coached co-founders to align on shared values, has supported teams to communicate more courageously, and has engaged with early career professionals, helping them discover where their deepest passion merges with their greatest strengths.

Chantal has worked in the non-profit, start-up, academic, and corporate worlds with clients such as Facebook, KIPP, and Stanford University. Most recently, Chantal worked in-house at Teach For America serving as the in-house Executive Coach to over 50 Executive Director’s throughout the country.

She earned a BA from Georgetown University, an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and she co-authored the Stanford Social Innovation Review article ‘Freeing the Social Entrepreneur.’ Chantal received her coaching certification from the Coaches Training Institute.

Having grown up abroad, Chantal loves exploring unfamiliar places far away and embarking on adventures close to home. She lives in Oakland, CA with her husband and three children.

Embracing new experiences – from cheering in the stands of a roller derby tournament to eating puffin in Iceland – that give me energy and a new perspective on people and the world. And, Tami Taylor from the outstanding show Friday Night Lights.
