Who is Leslie?
Leslie is an intuitive leadership coach & mentor. It is her nurturing and caregiving nature that attracts her clients to her where they feel safe and cared for as they journey to discover their leader that lies within.
She is a wife, momma, coach, mentor, international best-selling author, site-based advisor for one of Canada’s largest energy companies and the founder of Leslie Rochelle Coaching & Consulting.
Leslie has always had a fascination with what makes us tick as individuals and why we do what we do. She has a passion for people and encouraging growth. Whether that be with career development, supporting others through challenges, developing high performing teams or mentoring someone on how to get closer to their life and career goals.
She is intuitive and has a unique ability to see the strengths in another, to hold space & guide them towards breakthrough and supports that fine tuning to getting her clients into and finding their rhythm.
As a Certified Practitioner of NLP & Time Line Therapy, her coaching style includes a combination of leadership & life coaching and personal development beautifully sprinkled with aspects of spirituality.
Why she does what she does?
Leslie’s belief is that phenomenal leadership starts within and its foundation is understanding who we are at the soul level. Uncovering our true selves and setting ego aside allows us to thrive in any environment.
Leadership is not a title, it’s a way of being that we innately possess and identifying our authentic leadership style provides gains in all areas of our lives.
Will everyone lead a team? No.
However, we can learn to show up as our best selves, knowing who we are and that’s the definition of true leadership, in her opinion.
As a consummate learner, in her search for development, she found that the self-discovery aspect and leadership training seemed to be separate. Joining the two into one learning experience, is truly when one excels, this was the birthplace of Leslie Rochelle Coaching & Consulting.
In a world that seems to have gone sideways in many ways, a new definition of leadership is essential. Our lives deserve enhanced leadership. Our organizations deserve superior leadership. Our countries deserve exceptional leadership as does the globe.
The excellence we seek starts within us as individuals.
NOW... let’s back up a few years… Before these beliefs were solidified.
With over 14 years in the Energy Industry, she’s experienced volatility, market crashes, multiple mergers, several re-organizations and a constant flow of change in this demanding environment.
It was on this rocky road, in the moments of the greatest challenge that offered the biggest opportunities for growth. One of these opportunities came when she was offered a massive promotion into a leadership role unlike anything she had experienced to date.
It came as a surprise in this heavily male dominated industry as there were no other female leaders at the site level, it wasn’t even something she was consciously working towards.
and at first she declined the offer...
She realized that she’d often be the only woman in the room which made her question her ability to perform to the level she knew the role required.
Upon the second request, knowing the first decline with simply a fear response, she accepted the position with the thought..."what's the worst that could happen?"
Turns out this was a loaded question.
Little did she know when she accepted the position, that she’d be required to pull on all of personal development skill sets she had and much more to learn to thrive in her position, heck they were required to merely survive.
She did things the hard way, giving so much energy to her job that she needed days to recover after her shift to gather the strength to go back and do it all over again. It was one fateful day, as she lay on the sofa exhausted and overwhelmed that she knew something must change. If it didn’t, it would either break her or her family.
So, she surrendered and asked for help.
That something that needed to change wasn’t the external circumstances, it was HER. 100% HER and she owned that wholeheartedly.
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the fog lifted as she started her own extensive journey of self-discovery. Identifying who Leslie was at her core and what she truly deeply desired in life.
This work paid off enormously.
From being depleted to thriving to creating her dream team and becoming to go-to for new & emerging females leaders at her site location.
