I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to participate in one of Lesley's condensed workshops. Not only was the content thought-provoking and invaluable as a young leader, but her application of the material and personal energy was top notch. Easily on par with some of best of development workshops I've attended; I would eagerly recommend her services to anyone looking for personal energy reflection, professional energy development, and/or leadership and career advancement. Level 7 all the way!

Lesley helped me build a healthier balance between my business and personal life.
Through the framework of the Energy Leadership Index and our work on emotional intelligence, I was able to create greater self-awareness and understanding of my conscious and unconscious triggers.
She is compassionate, heartfelt and truly loves helping people grow.
I have known Lesley since we met in the Leadership Niagara class of 2013/2014. Since then I have had the pleasure of staying in contact with Lesley as she has grown as a leader and coach. The amazing energy and positivity that Lesley carries with her is contagious. And whenever I have the privilege of speaking with her I leave with a renewed feeling of engagement.

Being with Lesley is energizing by itself. She gives you her whole authentic self, and her enthusiasm and passion for what she does. She is prepared, professional, engaging and completely focused on you, her client. She works with you to create, or rediscover, the best version of yourself, the version you dream of, no matter where you are now, personally or professionally, and it is inspiring, contagious and attainable!
Working with Lesley and the Energy Leadership Index brought me a new level of self-awareness that has shown me, how I can quickly move from feeling down, or hard done by, to feeling hopeful and motivated, by understanding my triggers and then intentionally changing my thoughts to turn circumstances into opportunity, creativity and joy.
I would highly recommend doing any kind of work that Lesley offers, and definitely take the Energy Leadership Index Assessment! You will change your attitude, and changing your attitude transforms everything. In the best possible way.

When Lesley approached me with the idea of doing a coaching session to help me overcome some of the day-to-day stresses of my new job, I was a bit hesitant. To be fair, I didn’t quite understand what it was, and my preconceived notions — that it’s new-age and self-help-y — were absolutely incorrect.
With Lesley’s keen guidance and deep insights, I was able to come up with practical, logical and easily implementable ways to control my stress and realign my priorities so my days didn’t feel so out of control. Lesley’s warmth, knowledge and directness were crucial to this process, and I’m happy to report that weeks later I’m still happily engaged in the two simple yet effective solutions we came up with, and I’m honestly more content than I’ve been in the five months since I started my job.
Overall, I highly recommend a session — it’s important to know that coaching isn’t about “fixing” you, it’s about unblocking and opening, finding solutions, and feeling supported — and you’ll find no better advocate than Lesley Calvin, whose strength, kindness, and smarts have saved me more times than I’d have space to talk about here.

Lesley is a great coach. During my weeks of coaching with her, I experienced breakthrough in several areas of my life.
Lesley has a way of getting to the deep root issues and helping you to process through them. With her coaching, I was able to work through some difficult blocks in my life and begin to move forward.
Lesley is very validating and helped me realize that my feelings are normal. She was also very helpful in working with me to set manageable goals so I could see results.
I recommend Lesley wholeheartedly as a coach.

As a strategic planner, facilitator and leadership developer, Lesley brings a breadth of multi-sectoral experience coupled with depth in developing and supporting an emotionally-intelligent, results-driven, and people-centered leaders.
The Context: My team recently engaged Lesley to work with us through a challenging change management process, using our commonality as the starting point to build lasting consensus and establish trust between peers and teams. We were once a collection of 4 co-located teams with distinct though intersecting mandates, a tenuous unifying theme, and 4 different languages that did not translate well.
The Result: Through our time with Lesley, our team dynamic is rapidly evolving and what was once a challenge - meaningful engagement - is near-second nature. We now have the tools to collaborate and a common language to communicate.
The Recommendation: If business success, shared values, and/or unified strategy matter to you, then Lesley Calvin should be your first call.

I attended Lesley Calvin’s energy management and emotional intelligence coaching workshop.
The material Lesley delivered helped me immensely.
As someone transitioning into leadership roles professionally, while balancing a young family in my personal life, the material really hit home. It has helped me to navigate through social interactions both personally and professionally.
Lesley’s methods of delivering the material were crucial to its success. She has a way of delivering the
key concepts while making them relatable to our daily lives. It is a very informative, eye opening, and
fun way to either learn these new-to-you concepts, or gain another understanding of them.
I will forever have the tools from her workshop to use throughout my day-to-day life, and look forward
to working with her again!
