Erin Leslie, EQ-i Certified

Sometimes in your career you hit a point where you don’t know how much farther the current approach will take you.
You wonder how much more you can handle of the day to day operational pressures.
You think to yourself, “has the company lost sight of my dedication and contribution?”
There are also moments when you feel it’s time to pivot and take a leap of faith to what you love. You want to follow your passion but aren’t sure how to change from your current role.

It takes courage, leadership and tenacity to create a balanced life and a coach can help you get on track. That’s why I am here to help.

Career coaching offers an opportunity to have a one on one dialogue with an expert who is invested in you.

YOU are your best asset. Take stock in your transferrable skills and get ahead of the pack with coaching and essential assessments geared to help you navigate to your next success.

I am a leadership and career coach who supports clients with professional preparations in leading their careers, breaking down problems in specific projects, teaching team dynamic tools, creating effective professional branding and networking essentials.

I am certified in emotional intelligence assessment, EQ-i 2.0. This evaluation provides my clients with an in-depth look at their 5 core personality traits and 15 key sub-components they can expand on to improve their reach in their personal and professional lives.

With over 20 years’ experience in Technology as a business leader providing clarity and customer excellence in many industries across the private and public sectors, I understand the complexities at the C-Suite level all the way to the help desk. It’s my goal to take what I have learnt in the field and apply an empathetic lens to business and excel.

In a world faced with automation and innovation, many professionals are looking to increase their resiliency factor and lead the rest of their career in a manner that will shape and grow.

As Founder of EQFootprints, a leadership coaching business, I am committed to supporting professionals with an array of coaching and vocational tools. I am also passionate about giving back to our community. I volunteer as a Mentor with the TRIEC mentorship program, mentoring newcomers to Canada. It’s a great opportunity to support the evolution of newcomer professional integration practices in Canada and helping families in continuing to build for their future in a new environment.

I am currently Co-Lead of the Career Coaching and Counselling Service as well as the Career & Vocational Assessment Service at CFIR, providing a large array of personalized testing to compliment one-on-one coaching tailored specifically to individual client needs. I work under the direct supervision of Dr. Lila Hakim, C.Psych.

Since 2016 I have provided keynote speaking and participated in panels on the following topics: Women in Leadership, Authentic Self, Managing Bias in the Workplace.
