Gracious Space is a core body of work developed by the Center for Ethical Leadership in Seattle which has helped over 15,000 people in 30 states and 45 countries to work better together around critical issues. The Center has created and used Gracious Space in many sectors, including health care, business, government, community, nonprofit, and schools.

Most groups are made up of well-meaning people who nevertheless find themselves in situations of conflict with others. Whether the project is a leadership development program, community initiative, difficult conversation on race, a reorganization, performance appraisal, coaching conversation, new vision, mission or strategic plan, a new team, or mediation – Gracious Space can make the relationships stronger and the work flow more creatively.


Chantel Schieffer is the President and CEO of Leadership Montana, whose mission is to develop leaders committed to building a better Montana through knowledge, collaboration, and civility. Leadership Montana is a non-profit collaboration of leaders from business, labor, non-profit organizations, education, healthcare and government coming together to form a strong partnership for the betterment of Montana.

Chantel joined the Leadership Montana team in 2014 and is an alumna from the Class of 2010. In 2016, she was certified as a Gracious Space trainer by the Center for Ethical Leadership.

Originally from Kalispell, she graduated Montana State University with a degree in Political Science and has spent the last two decades cultivating an exciting career in public relations, fund development, and public service. Chantel is an active volunteer, currently serving the Montana State University Alumni Foundation, Montana Ambassadors, Eagle Mount in Bozeman, and the Governor’s Commission on Community Service.

The Schieffer family, including husband Dax and son Dax Michael, lives in Bozeman and plays outside as much as possible.
