Our Collective Experience


LII is one of Canada’s leading executive/leadership coaching communities also offering services in the areas of organizational change and development management consulting as well as leadership, management and team development. Our systemic approach helps our clients transform best practice into the ‘right’ practice to create effective and sustainable organizations and leaders. Our work is dedicated to helping our clients achieve sustainable business results by aiding in building change ready leaders and organizational capability and capacity.

Coaching is a profession that combines the best aspects of personal and leadership development, superior communication practices, deeper levels of self-awareness and introspection, experiential learning practices, systems thinking, and team as well as organizational development. Coaching helps the clients discover how they can leverage their personal development to build successful teams, enhance corporate culture and spirit in the workplace, access unknown strengths, address and minimize vulnerabilities, and act as a role model for others all while making sustainable contributions to both individual and organizational performance. Coaching helps a leader “live their legacy” in the present and sustain it long after they are gone… it is more than what is left behind.

Community of Executive/Leadership/Career Management Coaches: LII works with an associate network of certified coaches. LII has an established vetting process and a rigorous induction program for the selection of Associate Coaches in order to create the Leadership Intelligence Coach Community (LICC).

LII Principal, Associate, and Assessment Coaches are successful executives in their own right and have had distinguished careers in a wide variety of industries, government agencies, not-for-profits, academic institutions, large multi-national and national corporations, international associations, and entrepreneurial organizations. LII’s Coach Community brings a wealth of strategic thinking and practical execution strategies to client conversations requiring the integration and understanding of complex organizational environments and systems. LII Coaches encourage their clients to explore fact-based decision-making processes combined with systemic solutions to create optimal solutions. By exploring multiple positions and extending the clients ‘thinking diversity’, clients engage and open up to different perceptions, opinions, and are better able to orient, prioritize, learn, and capitalize on emerging opportunities while delivering organizational results.

Additionally, LII engages Assessment Coaches with expertise in: identifying appropriate assessment instruments for client engagements; administering selected assessments; conducting debriefs with Client and Coach on assessment results; and creating customized multi-rater assessments, as well as integrated personalized reports for clients summarizing all assessment findings.
