Leadership Coaching for High Achieving Women
DISCOVER WHAT'S MISSING
DEFINE YOUR LEGACY
DECIDE YOUR FUTURE
If you could do anything you wanted, what would it be?
As a woman, you’ve probably worked harder and longer than many of your counterparts, and brought it home with you both physically and mentally.
You can have a career that you love and a rich, fulfilling personal life.
We can do this together.
I’m Kim Neeson. I’m a wife, mother, entrepreneur, recovering perfectionist, and fierce advocate for my clients.
A few years ago, I sold my business to the most successful company in my industry. But the road to that destination wasn’t a straight line: I overcame partnerships that failed, litigation and harassment; I led both women and men, hired and fired toxic employees, and had moments when I wondered if I could meet payroll that week; I had friendships fall away, sacrificed personal time to achieve success and had moments where I was ready to literally throw the business out the window. I navigated marriage, divorce, motherhood, stress-induced illness and a few other major life events.
I know what it’s like to question everything. I’m guilty of taking my work on vacation. I’ve turned myself into a pretzel to accommodate the needs of everyone around me.
I’m driven, determined, and dedicated. After 25 years of owning a successful business in Toronto, I realized the life I created for myself was lacking in work/life integration, deep meaning and real connection.
For years, work was my haven - my safe place. I was rewarded. I received all the right acknowledgements and accolades that kept my ego going. Award-winning woman entrepreneur? Check. Work/life integration? Not so much.
Enter coaching. I took my training through Erickson International Coaching. For the first time, I began to question what role I was playing in my own story.
I dug deep. I realized I was allowing work to define my life. To define ME.
When I listened to my heart, I knew there was a way to stop the sacrificing and find my own runway to freedom. Having found my inner happy, I’m now here to be your guide and help you find yours.
You CAN go home without feeling guilty. And maybe you can’t have it all, but boy, you can have a LOT of it!
Kim is a lifesaver! When I first started working with her I was in a real slump. I had lost my inspiration and had no direction in my business. Kim encouraged me to envision my dream business which in turn inspired me to seek grant funding for business expansion which I secured. She helped boost my confidence and supported me when I needed that little extra push. I highly recommend working with Kim!

Kim helped me organize different areas of my life and take an objective look at what I need to focus on. She also helped me come up with new approaches for tackling skills I want to develop. We covered a lot of ground – anything from confidence to practical skills I can use daily. She's been tremendously beneficial to me - both personally and professionally.
- Olga Arias
The value Kim brought to my life is priceless. It may sound extreme, but it’s an understatement compared to how she has helped me. I was stuck in a rut. Through coaching, I developed healthy habits both in my personal and work life. I now have goals and a plan!

Kim empathized completely, which gave me confidence that she understood my situation. Importantly, she immediately engaged me in thought processes that helped me to better define my life as it was and where it was going according to my needs and expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at how she customized her coaching to me and my unique situation/needs.

So here I am. Everything I…Read More
