She is warm but firm and is very quick to grasp the essence of leadership issues.” D – Edmonton
“…she listened deeply and demonstrated responsiveness by in the moment, reflecting back for me, what I was saying. She was non-judgmental, even when I was being judgmental to myself… Lily’s coaching helped me get really clear on next steps forward and also steps to address aspects that are holding me back from my vision.

Annette Siewertsen CECCertified Executive Coach SeaStar Coaching
I have believed in coaching from the time I started working with the Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching at Royal Roads University in 2005. Since becoming a Certified Executive Coach through Royal Roads Univeristy; coaching has become a way of being for me. I have shifted my listening and my way of conversing at home, at work, with friends, in organizations that I am connected to…not a huge shift…however, an impactful shift.
Believing in and being are two different pieces. I learn from each and every coaching conversation that I am engaged in and am finding that everyday conversations are turning into coaching conversations so naturally now. I have had the mindset of a “coach approach” with teams and colleagues throughout my career. I have participated in many leadership programs as I am curious about how people rise to the challenges they face in their lives.
I have been involved with local and global organizations linked to the coaching profession for a number of years and have been intrigued by the different ways of thinking and the common value of helping others. Being part of these organizations has helped me realize that this is something I would like to be part of not only in my career but also in my life. Some of the organizations that I have been involved with are:
Currently on the Steering Committee for the Western Regional Advisory Council for the International Coach Federation (ICF) (3 years)
Currenty a Team Coach for one of the Community Action Project Teams and have been a Mentor with Leadership Victoria (3 years)
Past President, Past Membership Director, current team member of our Coaching in Community initiative with the ICF Vancouver Island Coaches Association (on the Board of Directors for 6 years)
Past Project Manager for the Public Relations team for the HeroWork Rainbow Kitchen Radical Renovation
Past Secretary and Treasurer on the Board of Directors for the Association of Coach Training Organizations (ACTO) (6 years)
Past Board of Directors for WorkLink (8 years)
Past Mentor with the Rees Society, Mentoring Project at Victoria Cool Aid Society
Past Swimathon Volunteer Coordinator for Victoria Hospice (4 years)
I am an enthusiastic coach who will create a safe, positive environment, ask you thought provoking questions while opening up a whole new world of possibilities together.
