Discover experiences that give your life purpose in your Zone of Genius

Executive Coach Dr. Caneel Joyce reveals a life-changing framework that can help you overcome self-doubt, uncover your hidden talents, and radiate with confidence, one small step at a time.

To the creative-minded individual searching for meaning in their life:

Too many people spend their lives fitting in with the crowd, never fully embracing what makes them stand out.

It’s not their fault though.

Years of being undervalued and overlooked keep most of us from sharing our natural talents with even our closest friends. Eventually, we bury those unique talents beneath forgotten memories.

It’s like being trapped in a cage of deep-seated, self-defeating beliefs that confine you to your comfort zone and prevent you from achieving your unbridled potential.

But imagine a life where you wake up energized and ready to conquer your goals with unshakable clarity. Where your innate talents aren’t just recognized but celebrated. Where you can fearlessly share your unique gifts with the world and inspire resounding change in the lives of every person you meet.

This is where your Zone of Genius awaits, the realm within your life where the minutes melt away in an effortless state of flow. The place where you feel inspired, creative, and fulfilled.

In this course, Caneel takes you on a holistic journey of rediscovering your true authentic self. As you unravel the intricate tapestry of your life, you’ll finally be able to let go of self-imposed limitations and step into your Zone of Genius.

The “painful myth” of uncovering your Zone of Genius

We all have our own individual Zone of Genius. But only a handful of us ever discover where it lives, and even fewer ever step foot inside.

We’ve been programmed to believe success requires hard work and suffering.

This course, Discovering Your Zone of Genius, shows you how you can create a life of unparalleled fulfillment, effortless creative flow, and natural success, without a tinge of suffering.

In fact, as Caneel accompanies you on each course module, you’ll be able to recognize rewarding activities within your Zone of Genius that awaken your creativity and leave you brimming with energy.

Caneel’s holistic approach explores the interconnectedness of your personal and professional life and teaches you how to infuse your Zone of Genius into every facet of your being, from your career and relationships to the meaningful change you wish to bring to the world around you.

By the end of this course, you’ll not only have complete clarity on where this space of effortless flow and creative energy lives, you’ll also be equipped with tools, techniques, and exercises to help you spend the majority of your time in your unique Zone of Genius.

In just a little over 2 hours of video lessons, you’ll learn about:

Zoë Barry

Founder/CEO at Zingeroo

I started receiving coaching from Caneel after I was 4 years into my startup, in the midst of a Series B financing, and about to have my team double in size.

Steve Raymond

CEO @ Prism Labs, Inc.

When I first started working with Caneel and the team from Evolution I had recently taken over as CEO of 8i, where we had amazing technology and a huge market opportunity but we were struggling with cultural problems associated with growing quickly and having a split geography. It’s always hard to make a decision to invest in consulting and coaching as an early stage company, but I saw the challenge of bringing the company together as one team …see more as the most important job in front of me. Caneel helped us to streamline and strengthen our organization, but more importantly helped us change very quickly to a culture that valued and accepted accountability and cultivated world class leaders. The change has been difficult and at times painful, but we are emerging from the other side of it as a very tight and streamlined group that can meet the challenges that being a startup presents. Caneel has very direct and efficient style and brings a wealth of insight and experience into our coaching sessions, especially with respect to the “people” part of the job. If you are desperate to get to a place where your team is aligned and functioning at an “A” level like I was, you should invest in Caneel and the team at Evolution.

Using AI to optimize workforce

By identifying what parts of our existing proposition ‘landed’, Caneel helped me to see how to streamline and present ourselves. The broader conclusion was that, to be funded, we needed to make the product crystal clear. Having technology is good, but only relevant if people believe the product. By accepted that we need to fit what we do into 1 sentence, 1 page and 1 slide, I stopped resisting ‘simplification’… ending the day with one kickass meeting …see more — primarily as a result of addressing Caneel’s criticism!

I worked with Caneel when she was tasked with doing a behavioural investment project for Nutmeg.

Caneel, as our “external” consultant, stepped in and steered the discussion in a practical, goal-oriented way. She suggested concrete deliverables for certain teams to deliver, including hers.
