Leslie Strong is the author of The YOU Factor: A Handbook for Powerful Living. She recently celebrated her 20th year as a certified leadership development coach. She is a keynote speaker, and workshop facilitator for organizations such as CIBC, RBC, Bell Media and Home Depot.
Leslie’s expertise is in shifting how women think, so they can regain power, control and balance in every area of their lives. Leslie provides her executive clients with tools that put them in the driver seat of their lives, leaving them happy, fulfilled, and motivated to create exactly what they want.
Leslie has been featured in the Globe & Mail, Huffington Post, and on Canada AM, Breakfast Television, Daytime T.O., and FOX, as well as many other radio and TV programs across the U.S. and Canada.
In The YOU Factor, Leslie gives women who feel trapped in their business and personal lives some simple advice: "It’s not about them; it’s about you. If you put that idea into practice," Leslie says, "you can live a life full of power, meaning, and joy."
As an executive coach, I listen to stories for a living, and I usually notice something right away. Nothing much changes. Year after year, it’s the same story, the same complaint, even the same bad guy. It’s Groundhog Day for women. Yet the real clue is not the narrative, or the repetition. If you listen carefully to these stories, you soon see a pattern: It’s always someone else’s fault. That someone might be a thing or a situation. It might be the circumstances. But one thing’s for sure: The woman who’s complaining, with a latte or a glass of wine in hand, never thinks she’s responsible. That is the problem. She is a stock player in her movie, not the star. She’s the character who gets into a little trouble and then gets written out of the T.V. series—not the writer who’s in control of the show.
