I am Danielle Saputo. I'm a Legacy Coach and Family Advisor.
I help individuals and families create clarity on their values and vision and define their strengths to live in harmony.
As a professional co-active coach and ICF certified Legacy Coach, my goal is to help my clients re-imagine their lives and let go of negative thoughts and undermining behaviors so they can emerge renewed and fulfilled.
My belief is "When your own light shines bright it's inevitable that this light will spread and help the light shine within others. It's Contagious!" Through trust and accountability, I help each individual become a leader who cares, connects and contributes.
My vision is to focus this work on Canadian Enterprising Families. To make every member of the family feel significant and define within themselves what it is to be a leader - not in the traditional sense. A leader who makes conscious choices and understands where they fit in an Enterprising Family System. Where communication is more fluid then we traditionally see and families stay more harmonious as there is inter-generational wealth transfer. My ultimate goal is to see more Canadian families succeed past the proverbial shirtsleeve to shirtsleeve in 3 generations and be confident, transparent and united in creating their 100yr plan.
Specializing in Leadership and Family Enterprise, I also help parents as they struggle with questions about succession and keeping harmony within themselves and the family. My focus as a Family Advisor is to clarify purpose, resolve conflict and amplify your total wealth.
With extensive coaching experience and advising through first hand experience, my personal commitment is to provide my clients with accountability, understanding, and support on their journeys.
My mission is to help every client live his or her legacy with confidence and harmony.
I am a life learner dedicating to bringing out the best in others and myself. I earned a Bachelor of Commerce (BComm) and a graduate degree in Institutional Administration (DIA) from Concordia University. I completed wealth management courses at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management and The John Molson School of Business in Montreal.
I am an Accredited Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and The Coach Teaching Institute (TCTI) with designations in Emotional Intelligence and Legacy Coach. I also trained with the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) in co-active coaching. I am presently enrolled in the Family Enterprise Xchange Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) program. I am a published author and my book is called I Am Enough: Emerging from the Shadows into the Sunlight of My True Self
I'm 3rd generation of a family business and worked in the business until I married and began a family of my own. I am president of Danuto Holdings and manage investments. I am a member of the Grove Society executive board and a trustee for the Lakefield College School.
On the home front, I give input to our family meetings, create multi-generational games and coordinated the writing of a family values book. My focus is on building a family legacy and fostering financial literacy to my children, the next generation.
