We hired Magenta to help us more fully engage our workforce, leaders, and other stakeholders in our ongoing service to the greater Vancouver region.  They helped us devise efficient, powerful ways of innovating, learning, and creating across our organization.  We’re deploying them in all our work, big and small — with wonderful results!

When I faced a conflict with a close colleague in a complex project that depended greatly on the two of us and the health of our relationship, we reached out to Louisa and Magenta to help us. Louisa facilitated a process through which we could understand and empathize with each other, and we managed to unblock our relationship and conclude the project successfully.

Magenta provided a sensitive, personal and supportive approach to enhancing our strengths while inspiring us to go beyond our expectations. Their accessible methods equipped us with tools for implementing beyond their program.

Whether you are in the executive suite, middle management, or building a startup, leadership can sometimes feel like a trial by fire. We wrote this ebook to help you put together a deeper level solution — it’s not another organizing tool or priority to-do list app; it’s a handbook for inner work, the inner work of being the leader your organization needs you to be.

This handbook gives you concepts, tools, and exercises to help you build a simple, profound, robust, take-anywhere practice that gets to the root of inner blocks and strengthens the heart of your leadership capacity.



Co-founded by Louisa Barnum and Jeff Barnum, co-authors of the e-book: Leadership Presence Handbook, Magenta Studios is a consultancy and training company specializing in the application of inner work and creativity for positive social change.

We focus on helping change leaders and initiatives engage with mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a social system. Systems thinking calls these “paradigms” and “mental models;” they also include traumas such as those caused by violence, colonialism, and racism. We’ve been leading and supporting creative collaborations for positive change worldwide since 1996.
