Lead With Grace and Personal Power

Welcome business-builders, rising executives, CEOs, entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, creatives, visionaries, makers and collaborators!

Emerging Women is excited to introduce you to the Radiant Leader mastery program for leadership and life our most in-depth, high-touch experience that exists in order to empower business-building women to step forward, reimagine a different way to lead that works for WOMEN and the people we love, and have a strong voice in shaping our future.

We created Radiant Leader for women who refuse to play small, quiet our voices, or collapse into burnout and will settle for no less than leading from the truth of who we are.

The waitlist is now open for Fall 2023 Enrollment.

If You Are Like Many Women Today, You May Be…


Stuck in survival mode

Burnt out, tired, and quite likely tired of being tired
Having to fight to simply stay above water

Living reactively and can’t find time to really tune into your vision, strategy and what you really REALLY want for your life and work

Depressed and anxious, chasing success

Exhausted by all of the DOING and not enough BEING – too much crossing off the list and not enough meaning making along the way


Thinking Small

Holding back, staying quiet, and playing small in order to fit in

Fearful of speaking up and using your voice

Feeling like you have to work twice as hard as others to be seen and heard above the noise (of an old outdated model that rewards the loudest or most aggressive in the room)

Putting a cap on what you think is possible before you even give it conscious thought

Hesitant to see yourself as a “leader” (isn’t that for only for extroverts?)

Feeling held back by limiting patterns and “loyalty” to your inherited familial behaviors – which helped you to survive but are no longer serving you

Having a hard time really stepping into and living your vision


Paralyzed by the unknown

Anxious about not being clear

Pressure to have it all figured out

Fear of risking failure

Wondering why you continue to get “pigeon-holed” into work that you are good at but don’t love (while also feeling guilty because if you are good at it, you “should” love it, right)?



Feeling alone and lonely on your journey to greater leadership expression

Wishing you had more of a strong support circle of powerful women also in the arena for more encouragement and connection

The overwhelm of building your business keeps you from reaching out for support

Feeling shame that comes from comparing yourself to other business-building women

I felt immediately seen, supported, and connected. The intimacy was incredible, especially just in our first group meeting. Throughout the program, the topics and questions from our facilitator prompted us to connect at a real and deep level.

Shyla D.

It’s time for women’s voices to be heard.

It’s time for us to step up and out, to commit to playing a bigger game—one that reflects our version of success and leadership.

We need to lead with our stories, experiences, and the truth of who we are.

We need to embody conscious leadership that is rooted in connection, feminine power, and authenticity.

We need to ensure that innovation and power structures represent the true human experience.

Why now?

Women have been on the economic and emotional front lines in the pre, during and post-pandemic era. More women are being relied upon to hold the emotional health of their teams, families, communities, and at work.

Add to that, the looming global threats affect us more intensely and quickly because we tend to be major caretakers.

Workplace culture has normalized long-term burnout.

So, how do we evolve into greater positions of leadership so we can create the kinds of change we want to see in the world, without feeling stretched too thin so we have nothing left?

We double down on our self-care.
We own our voice.
We get connected with other women.
We break free of our limiting beliefs about our power and potential.

We step forward to imagine — and actualize — a different way to lead in life and work that works for women and the people we love.

Now is the perfect time to reinvent what we mean by leadership and live into the kind of success that is reflective who we truly are.

Dear Emerging Women,

As I write this I am acutely aware of my own journey as an Emerging Woman.

It took me many decades to see how the version of success presented to me as a young girl led to my habit of hiding my feminine power and stifling my full human expression.

Play it safe, work to fit in, and prove your worth were the messages I internalized in my youth and wow did they set me back.

It is hard to be successful without taking risk and experiencing failure — and this is also true of our inner journey. When it became clear that fitting in and constantly proving was exhausting my resources, I was ready to take some internal risks.

Risk #1: Identifying what I really wanted.

What did I want to create, express, and live in this lifetime? And what if these desires don’t match up to the desires that others — my boss, parents, spouse, children — have for my life?

I found that I was willing to risk the fall out, because the impact of living a life prescribed to me involuntarily (if subtly) had greater negative consequences. Now the unapologetic question of “What do you really want?” has become the cornerstone of not just my life, but of all of our programs here at Emerging Women.

Risk #2: Believing in myself.

What did I have to lose? I had already exhausted the kick-in-the-ass inner-critic approach where I questioned my worthiness and subjected myself to the paralyzing practice of toxic success comparison. And believe me I worked it. Hard.

The downside to the risk of believing in myself is the regret over not believing in myself earlier, of not seeing that I was enough just as I am.

Now I no longer see myself or anyone else as a project to fix, because clearly we are not broken.

Now I am my biggest fan — even when I fail.

Risk #3: Trusting in the universe.

OK, truthfully, I am still working on this one! The risk here is that I will not know everything all the time and I won’t control everything all the time. But guess what? This lack of trust is what led me to burn out.

The universe is built to support our intentions and attentions. The more we trust, the safer we feel, the more energy and inspiration we have to create and express.

My practice now is: See the ways in which the universe loves me. Trust. Create. Repeat.

So, what happened when I risked getting real about my desires, believing in myself, and trusting that the universe would support me?

I left a lucrative and successful career at one of the top spiritual publishing companies in the world and a mentor that I admired with all of my heart, and — with not a dime in savings — I lept and launched Emerging Women. My youngest son was 2 ½ years old and I was the major breadwinner in my marriage.


And yes, the universe showed up. Big time.

Emerging Women is now a multi-million dollar women’s leadership company whose reach extends to over 25 countries across the globe, multiple Fortune 100 corporations, and over 50,000 women worldwide.

We have had Radiant Leaders such as Brene Brown, Jane Goodall, Arianna Huffington, Alanis Morrisette, Janet Mock, Reshma Saujani, Liz Gilbert, Ani DiFranco, Alicia Garza, Eve Ensler, Terrerai Trent, Gabby Bernstein, Danielle LaPorte and so many others grace our stage as part of our Emerging Women live events, and the ripple effects of our outreach continues to grow.

And today It is my greatest honor to invite you to the Radiant Leader Mastery Program for Leadership and Life, so that we may continue to risk together, to leverage our collective leaps in the reach for a model of success that is restorative, nourishing, and altogether more powerful than we could ever imagine on our own.

This experience is for women like you and like me who are wanting to create a new paradigm for leadership in the world, one that integrates the feminine perspective and leverages the graceful power of the whole of us.


Energy—NOT hours labored—is the strongest currency we have for the work we do in the world. This is Radiance.

Like the sun, the Radiant Leader draws life inward, inspires growth, and emphasizes interconnectedness. The Radiant Leader sources power from strong energetic presence—born from self-awareness and radical self-acceptance. These two characteristics are arguably the greatest differentiators of history’s most celebrated leaders.

  • You want a greater understanding of your own personal power — and your feminine power
  • You want an alternative to grinding and gritting your way through
  • You frankly are overwhelmed and often lonely and want to be connected to a web of like-minded women business-builders and life-shapers
  • You are thirsty for more meaning in your life and work
  • You want more intention, ritual, and deliberate initiation through transitions and the chaos of change

My friend, this is a crucial point in our lives and in history.

We are burnt out and disillusioned in record numbers, while the old paradigm of leadership and business struggles to reassert pre-pandemic norms.

We are dying for something new — that works for women and those we love.

At this point, you can either re-create the same old crap that you hate and wish was different …

Or we can tap into our radiance to create something new that shapes our world.

It is not a given that things will get better. It is up to you, it’s up to us, as radiant leaders.

So, come join other brilliant women like you for this 9-month deep dive into living and leading with the truth of who you are. We will explore how to RADIATE power and grace, and how to expand our potential to create massive change through “how” and “why” we do what we do.


You’ve got a lot on your shoulders and you need to spend more time leading with your ideas and presence—the secret sauce to expanding your business!


You are rising or at the top of your game, and you are ready to lead with greater influence, deeper authenticity and care, a strong personal brand, while feeling connected to your feminine side!


You wear so many hats and you want to succeed in the company of other women like yourself who are stretching, growing and making sh*t happen on your own terms!


You are creating a movement, sending out the call, and you want to exponentially increase your reach by sharing your vision with people ready to be part of it.

Be Seen, Heard—and Felt

Live and lead from the truth of who you are.


This program transformed me: I found my courage. I shocked myself by speaking up in a room of men and fighting for what I believed was right, even when it was unpleasant. That got the attention of my boss and he gave back what had previously been taken away from my team. I was taught to be ‘nice’ and would have never done anything like this, previously!

By integrating the findings of your self-assessment into the Radiant Leader experience you will develop more awareness about your unique leadership identity. Your wholeness will become a source of power, nourishment, natural expression, and Radiant Leadership.

Are you ready to step into a higher level of self-actualization and share more of YOU with the world?

We can’t wait to welcome you into this powerful, life-changing program.

The core curriculum

The Radiant Leader Mastery Program focuses on three areas of development.

Much of the current paradigm for success and leadership focuses on the individual ability to “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” and be able to achieve superhuman feats all by yourself. This has created a culture where those aspiring to high levels of leadership are trained to stand out, publicly tout their accomplishments, share their wins, and ensure they get credit for all of their work.

We, however, are creating a new paradigm for success and leadership, one that begins with a healthy authentic you, supported by a true sense of belonging, and radiating much-needed change into the world through what you do.


Self-Actualization and Personal Power.

Radiant Leadership begins with a healthy “I”. The experience attends to your personal story, intentions, authenticity, and Native Genius ©, creating a strong foundation to understand who you are, what you want, and what’s holding you back from getting it.


Connection and Relationships.

Healthy self-understanding and expression allows the capacity to come together with others, connect more deeply, get the support you need, and feel fulfilled with a real sense of belonging. The community we create in this experience is a powerful container for exploration that ripples out to all your relationships.

The World

 Influencing and Innovating our Environment.

When strong “I”s come together in a healthy “we,” magic happens. With the right tools and support, you will begin to see the impact you want to have manifesting in your work, your creations, your endeavors, your life. New possibilities and routes to get there will emerge that you never thought possible.

Radiant Leader Themes

The Radiant Leader Mastery Program for Leadership and Life weaves the following Themes into our classes, Radiant Leader Circles, and retreats, to guide you to lead from the truth of who you are.

In this theme, you will reflect on and tell your story, which is a critical stage on your journey to becoming a Radiant Leader, and creates a foundation for connection to your Radiant Leader Circle.

Radiant Leaders know how to use their own personal story to leverage success and connection both in their personal and professional life.

Powerful storytelling will help you rally the team behind an initiative, win clients, and woo partners. It will help you connect with your community, have greater leadership expression, and encourage authentic sharing. 

Expect to feel empowered and emboldened, with the push you need to more intentionally create your future story.

“Making it” is no longer just about traditional outcomes related to money, material goods, and reaching goals that are chosen for you by society or your family. It means doing work that matters and doing it in a way that supports your intentions for your life.

In this theme, you will rethink your definition of success to better align with your truth and thereby take the cap off of what you think is possible.

You will cultivate a level of awareness and identify powerful intentions that will support and guide you as you build your vision for doing the work that matters most to you.

What is holding you back? In this next step toward your full potential as a Radiant leader, you’ll become aware of limiting beliefs that may be keeping you from creating what you want for your life and work.

In this theme, you’ll first get to the heart of your limiting thoughts, stories, and beliefs. 

After building more self-awareness, you’ll learn how to rewrite and overcome these limits.

This moves you out of playing small and helps you step into your version of Radiant Leadership.

In this theme, you will safely develop the ability to be radically authentic without repercussions or retaliation from others.

You will develop the courage to explore internal obstacles like fear of rejection, isolation, anxiety, or overwhelm that may limit you from showing up honestly and vulnerably in the world as who you really are.

As you free yourself from the masks you wear, you will be able to meet the world and show up as the real you, naturally modeling and encouraging more authenticity with colleagues, teams, and clients.

In this theme, we’ll explore your Native Genius ©, the work of our partner Kristen Wheeler, which helps you get clear about not only the actions you’re good at doing but also the ones that you’re both good at doing and LOVE to do. You’ll be able to more clearly see that your biggest impact is leveraged in that zone.

This will help pull you out of burnout and feeling like you are not enough, into a more collaborative space that will put you in the mindset to live the truth of who you are and be successful doing it!

This theme takes radical authenticity into your work-life and helps you uncover and apply your native gifts to make a significant impact in whatever areas you touch.


Emotional intelligence is about perceiving, understanding, and managing the emotions that come up for yourself and others.

Emotional intelligence is also the single biggest predictor of leadership and life success.

In this theme, you will spend time exploring your emotional landscape so that you can better handle stress and overwhelm; stay connected to yourself and your vision; and relate, motivate, and empathize with your key supporters.

Owning your voice starts with discovering your relationship to your voice — where you feel comfortable to speak freely and where you hold back.  

With that as a foundation, you’ll explore how to ask for others’ perspectives, for help, and for what you want and need.

Then you’ll get comfortable with having difficult conversations that are completely honest, respectful, caring of the other person, and best support your vision of success. 

In this theme, you will explore what positions you as the main point of influence as it relates to any area of your expertise.

You will then create a powerful, authentic personal brand which allows you to be visible, extend your influence, and open up new opportunities, staying top of mind with those in your industry. 

Your Personal Brand helps you shine as a Radiant Leader, living into your full potential.

Radical self-compassion is about stepping away from the inner critic and toward self-kindness. This meta-practice will serve you well as you learn, risk failure, experiment with new strategies, face the unknown, and make changes in your life and work. It is proven to transform your life and well-being and will keep your spirit, nourishment, and motivation alive.

The core of this final theme is a Reflection Ritual. You’ll share what you’ve gained from being a part of this program, what you hope for yourself going forward, and how you’ll want to stay connected. You’ll share the impact others have had on your journey and what strong and supportive bonds you have forged as you have dared to be vulnerable and authentic.

Feeling truly seen, heard, appreciated, you will intentionally set off into what’s next for your life and your work.

Julia T

One of the biggest things I have gotten out of this program is learning how to use my voice. To not be afraid to put my opinion out there and to make my thoughts heard. This can be a scary task to someone new in their career, but this program gave me a safe place to practice speaking my thoughts and then take those thoughts and morph them into actions.

About Your Host

Chantal Pierrat

Founder & CEO

Empowering Women to Connect, Grow and Lead

Chantal’s mission is to increase women’s leadership across the globe. Her ultimate vision is to weave feminine perspectives and authenticity into businesses and to create a world where women have a strong voice in the shaping of our future.

After earning an MBA from the University of Colorado, Chantal left a career in medical device manufacturing in search of work that would align her dedication to transformative leadership with her passion for living an inspired, impactful life.

In September 2012, she founded Emerging Women, a global leadership and media platform that serves over 70,000 women worldwide and has advanced women’s leadership within Fortune 100 and 500 companies such as HP, Oracle, and more.

Prior to Emerging Women, for over a decade, Chantal served on the executive team as the VP of Sales and Marketing for Sounds True, a multimedia publishing company focused on spirituality, personal growth, and holistic living. 

Chantal harnessed her love of dance to create Soul Sweat, a joyful movement class that is currently taught by teachers across the country. She has continued to deepen her spiritual, personal and professional growth by diving deep into mindfulness meditation and Transformational NLP, all of which has helped to illuminate her core values:

  1. No one is broken. Any limit or block, when approached with respect and explored with curiosity, can bring us into more authenticity, wholeness, growth, and expansion.
  2. Embodiment is key. Our bodies have deep wisdom that we have to bring with us into all areas of our lives.
  3. Yes, we must first heal ourselves. But then, we must bring our whole selves into service of shaping our future.


Chantal is a sought-after speaker delivering keynotes at The Grace Hopper Celebration, Wisdom 2.0, and many other stages where women’s leadership is critical to the conversation.

When she is not dancing, hiking, or working to empower women around the world, Chantal enjoys family time with her husband and two sons in Boulder, CO.


Chantal is a creative powerhouse, filled with ideas and inspirations. She has a gift for seeing the highest potential in others and inspiring them to boldly realize their dreams.

“Chantal Pierrat masterfully facilitates potent and vigorous transformational sessions for women leaders. Through a process of deep listening, she assisted me in identifying the kernel of my truest inner calling, suggesting a way of moving through my career I hadn’t thought of. I’ve been able to step out of what feels merely comfortable and forge a new route forward, opening up a realm of professional possibilities I now feel authentically aligned with.

Joule L’Adara,

Chantal is one of the most visionary human beings I’ve ever encountered. She automatically sees the highest possibility in each person she meets, inspiring us to look beyond our own limited viewpoints so we can see what she sees. She has turned her own life into a journey of the heart, soul and body, always reaching for the next level of radiant aliveness for herself and others. I love this woman, and am thrilled she’s now giving other women the chance to learn her radiant ways.
