Hylke Faber

CEO, Coach & Facilitator, Author

For as long as I can remember I have been curious about what this life is about. My ongoing inquiry has become my work: helping people individually and collectively to discover what is possible in life and express that authentically and fearlessly.


I started my work life with Towers Perrin as consultant and then as Partner with Strategic Decisions Group, serving a wide range of industries, including financial services, manufacturing, consumer electronics and life sciences companies. A major shift occurred during this critical phase of my life. I had become the typical, hard-charging, 16-hours-a-day strategy consultant, and was burning out at a rapid clip. When I discovered meditation, everything changed. I was so taken by my new discoveries that I chose to bring to business what I was learning: that there is a way we can have it all - we can be fulfilled, do work we love, and create extraordinary impact with others, by intentionally creating connectedness with ourselves, each other, and our purpose.


I learned how to coach and facilitate human transformation completing my coaching certification with Newfield Network and by working at Axialent, the culture and leadership company. After a few years, I founded Co-Creation Partners together with other leaders in the field of transformation and personal development. Then I formed Constancee to help people grow by creating the conditions where deep personal, interpersonal and organizational shifts happen routinely.


I now lead Growth Leaders Network, the culture and team development consultancy. I have also taught coaching at Columbia Business School Executive Education and have contributed to Forbes and Harvard Business Review. I am currently teaching a course on Climate Conscious Leadership at Arizona State University. My award-winning book, Taming Your Crocodiles: Unlearn Fear & Become a True Leader, was published by Dover in 2018. My next book, Taming Your Crocodiles Practices for Leadership Depth, came out in 2020. My new book, The Connectedness Quotient, will be released in 2025. I also host the Rooted & Unwavering and Connected Teamwork podcasts. Besides helping others grow, which I love, I am a trained opera singer, enjoy hiking and writing, am an avid reader, in particular of biographies, and am always in the process of growing myself. I integrate all of what I learn in my work with executives.
