As people start to convene at conferences and workshops again, I’m being asked if I would come speak about some aspect of leadership or development. It’s taken me a bit by surprise – I guess because demand had fallen off as events were cancelled during the pandemic.

But as the world opens up and we’re getting back together in offices and at events, the demand is re-emerging.

And the answer is yes – I do enjoy giving speeches, presentations and workshops. I find myself invigorated by being in the same room as others again and engaging in conversations around leadership.

My colleagues and I have been asked to deliver a number of workshops on one of my favourite topics – using coaching skills to lead effectively. At the same time, we’ve been asked to stretch and deliver on a variety of different topics related to leadership and coaching.

For Dr. Nicole Boutilier, a busy physician and health-care leader, the journey to becoming an executive coach grew out of an innate desire to help others build out the depth of their leadership.

“I really was interested in building the capacity of leaders around me – to get them to be their own problem solvers and to trust their own instincts,” she says. “I just felt like it wasn't something that I necessarily knew how to do intuitively.”

Nicole, Vice President Medicine for Nova Scotia Health, has worked in various leadership roles over 25 years as an emergency room and family physician. More recently, she has become a certified executive coach.

And now, in addition to her high-pace career in health care, she is a member of the coaching roster at Vision Coaching, eager to help leaders inside and outside the medical profession reach new heights.

Vision Coaching is presenting a special virtual edition of our four-hour workshop Using Coaching to Lead™ next month.

If you or your organization are looking to propel leadership effectiveness and engagement, this is an opportunity to learn effective coaching skills that will help you achieve just that.

This online workshop will be held across a pair of two-hour sessions on Nov. 25 and Dec. 2 and will be facilitated by Jill Brown, CPA, ACC, CEC, a Certified Executive Coach who has worked in finance and human resources over 15 years. 

As a coach, Jill fosters and builds connection and trust with her clients with her empathetic approach and presence, cultivating strong relationships with those she works with.

In this episode of the Boiling Point, community leader Johanne McInnis shares how her life changed when she chose to be a mom at 17. 

She didn’t want to be a statistic and wanted to achieve more. By 35, she started giving back to her community through housing programs for young women who are pregnant and women fleeing domestic violence.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Johanne discusses her careers and passions, her experiences in male-dominated worlds and why she is involved with programs to empower women.
In another recent Boiling Point episode, Dave puts Emily Rodger in the spotlight – interviewing her about her vulnerability and authenticity as a world-class athlete, as a person and as a leadership coach who helps others navigate their way.

They also talk about Emily’s new non-profit organization, On The Rise, which builds confidence and leadership skills in youth through sport and adventure. 

Anyone inspired by resilience and the strength of the human spirit should not miss this episode.
