Who We Are

Alchemie Academy was born from the idea that every leader and organization is worthy and capable of standing in their strength. And when they do, every strategy, skill deployed, and approach takes on greater effectiveness.

About Us

Our Philosophy

We believe that that keys to unlocking productivity and profitability lie in hands and hearts of human capacity.

In our post-pandemic world of constant change, it’s the resilient leaders and workers who are making a positive impact. We believe in positive impact—for yourself and your workplace.

Have you ever tried to implement a strategy, policy, or skill set, only to be thwarted by the human condition? Along comes self-doubt, sabotage, and a gnawing sense that success is slipping through your grasp. The reason for this often comes from a misalignment between what you are doing and who you are as you do it. Our programs are the remedy to re-aligning the inner game of strength and confidence with the outer skills of leadership. The results are joy, happiness, increased productivity, and fulfillment… all that everyone deserves.

We believe that everyone deserves to sing in the shower every morning because they can’t wait to get to their day. No matter what the tasks at hand may be.
