Women In Leadership For Life (WILL) was launched in 2013, with the intent to support women in living a fully expressed life and to being their personal leadership best. One of the co-creators, Lillas Hatala, died in September of 2022.  Her passing written about in It is With a Tender Heart, has put much work on pause, but know the intent of WILL remains.

Join us in exploring this new era of leadership in your life!

Meet Linda and Lillas

We are honoured to invite you to join us as Women In Leadership For Life. We, Linda and Lillas, are mothers, daughters, grandmothers, friends, sisters, and in many areas of our lives, pioneers of women in leadership. We share the conviction that yoga and meditation supports wellbeing.

We met in graduate school, 35 years ago, and have been friends, colleagues, and collaborators since that time. Our work is guided by years of leadership development experience across Canada, as leaders and leadership development program designers, facilitators, and coaches. In recent years, we have been inspired by the power of many practices that contribute to transformation, such as compassionate communication, feminine power, and adaptive leadership.
