Are you wondering how to recognize and respond to the early signs of stress and imbalance in your life and leadership? And what practical steps can you take to regain a sense of balance?

Our revolutionary Rootsilience Leadership framework is based in ancient wisdom for modern leadership. The Rootsilience Leadership Map, based on the book, Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience, helps you answer these questions recognizing the interconnectedness of our leadership behavior, along with our emotional, physical, and mental well-being.

This leadership map will help you:

  • Recognize your unique signs of balance and imbalance, and become literate in the language of your body, behavior and mind
  • Decipher behavioral patterns that may be impacting your well-being and effectiveness as a leader.
  • Identify your “go to” areas (in the body, behavior and mind) for finding balance and ease
  • Shift away from ignoring, numbing and avoiding chronic pain or irritating behaviors, and recognize when it's time to pause, rejuvenate, and regain balance

To get your personalized map, please enter your information and follow the instructions on the following page. Set aside about 20 minutes to go through the questions and complete your Rootsilience Leadership Map. 

Includes a short video tutorial to walk you through this powerful tool!

- Ravit -Inclusive Development Leader

The Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience framework helped me to stop ignoring what my body is telling me. I started to notice how my health impacts my abilities each day and how it also impacts others around me.

Our body shows us when we’ve been stretched beyond our limits and knocked out of balance. But what can we do about it and how can we recognize those first signs?

Women leaders need a new path to balance, well-being and success. Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience is that path.

Resilience is not enough to deal with the stressors and challenges of the day. Our new word, Rootsilience, takes the notion of “resilience” a step deeper, and teaches us to be grounded, rooted and able to respond to stressors from a place of security rather than being stretched beyond our limits.


Your personalized Rootsilience Leadership Map helps you identify areas of focus to find balance and ease. This insightful tool maps the VIA Character Strengths (a lauded tool from positive psychology) to the ancient chakra system and highlights how our strengths – and our possible overuse and underuse of them – are connected at the physical, emotional and mental levels. 

Once you know where you may be vulnerable to falling out of balance you can use the tools from our conscious leadership exercises and healing foods that restore balance and well-being, as well as mind-body integration practices to embody the learnings. Rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach, Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience empowers you to successfully lead yourself back to balance.
