About Lissy Kates

Lissy Kates, CPC, ELI-MP knows about dealing with life’s curve balls. After being out of the workforce for more than 15 years, Lissy woke up one day divorced and a mother of three young children in a new world of uncertainty. Everything that she knew and believed in was turned upside down. A choice had to be made: NOW WHAT?

There was a strong motivation and desire to change her life and find her greatness. This was an opportunity to re-evaluate, redefine and honor herself as a woman first and foremost, and then, as the person she wanted to be for her children.

A graduate of McGill University in Sociology, Lissy turned her interest in what makes people tick and why they do what they do into a solid career as a strategic event planner, organizing and managing teams for corporate, foundation and individual events throughout the Montreal area. After her marriage, she turned these planning and managing skills to the domestic operations of her home and family, and to volunteer activities for area non-profit groups, raising funds for worthy causes such as children, education and entrepreneurship.

Those who know Lissy will tell you her enthusiasm and joy for life is contagious. It’s also an important part of why Lissy understands and manages life’s curves so well. Lissy is one of those people who turns lemons into lemonades, and when life throws her a curve, she finds a way to hit it out of the ballpark.

Her desire to help others to deal with their own curves sent her to the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), from which she is certified as a Professional Coach (CPC), specializing in life transitions for women, men and young adults. Her passion for helping others knows few bounds, and her results-oriented nature enables her to keep her clients focused on reaching the goals and actions that answer the ‘now what?’ question. ‘Getting to the greatness faster’ is how Lissy describes her process for taking her clients from procrastination and confusion to clarity and joy.

Lissy also is certified as a Master Practitioner to administer iPEC’s Energy Leadership Index (ELI-MP). The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) is a one-of-a-kind assessment that enables individuals to strengthen their personal leadership abilities by holding up the mirror to their perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall leadership capabilities – whether they are leading a business, a non-profit organization or simply their life.
