Can you have it all – and what prevents us from going for it? That’s the question Christine Burych helps to answer as the President of StarlingBrook Leadership Consulting. Christine is passionate about the psychology of leadership, what makes us tick and what limiting beliefs we may have adapted.

This stems from her past work in the field of mental health after noticing a pattern of behaviours around these limiting beliefs that affect how we show up.

Someone who needs to be in action, Christine feels most joy when helping others – including aiding Ukrainian women and children fleeing to Poland from war, and running a pro bono leadership program for millennials in the workforce.
