Who We Are
We are a professional coaching company founded by Lisa Chandler. Since our humble beginnings in Montreal in 2009, we’ve grown into our mission to create conscious, playful and profound experiences for leaders to transform themselves and our world. Leaders who have worked with Chandler Coaches go on to make a profoundly positive difference in our world.
Conscious leadership IS the answer in our organizations. It matters because it reduces drama, increases engagement and helps leaders create environments that both drive important results and become desirable places to work.
Since moving Chandler Coaches to PEI 5+ years ago, we’ve had the privilege of coaching growth-minded leaders who are the movers and shakers in our vibrant city and on our Island.
As we expand into our offices in downtown Charlottetown, we are excited to create a physical centre for conscious leadership to grow.
Imagine the possibilities as we collectively raise the bar on leadership and live into our vision with Island and Atlantic Canadian leaders!
Meet Lisa Chandler, CEO and Founder of Chandler Coaches
Among her many roles, she is proud to be a leader, an entrepreneur, and a coach. Her favourite role of all is being a mother to an eight-year old girl who is a budding entrepreneur herself.
Many leaders have told Lisa they are delighted to discover that they can access world-class leadership development in their backyard instead of travelling multiple times a year to larger centres.
To bring the best leadership development to PEI and Atlantic Canada, Lisa invests in her own leadership growth regularly.
She's honed her craft through plenty of coaching certifications, previous roles in the public and private sectors, and more than a decade of coaching leaders across North America. For the past five years, she has intentionally focused on leaders on PEI, home to her family and her heart.
If you want a coach who will help you set a bunch of 10x goals and push you to achieve them, Lisa is not your coach.
That is not to say she won’t help you achieve lofty goals or push you. It is to say that after more than a decade of coaching leaders, she knows that the most highly effective leaders are the most self-aware and that leadership development is an inside-out job.
Truly great leaders strengthen their inner game — uncovering their beliefs, blindspots, and habitual tendencies — so they can lead a strong outer game.
Through the Leadership Circle Profile™ 360 Assessment and an extensive toolkit of conscious leadership practices, Lisa helps leaders upgrade their “internal operating system” so they become the leaders people aspire to be and have a great time doing it.
Meet Lisa Doyle-MacBain, Manager of Client Services
Lisa Doyle-MacBain adds efficiency and polish to our Chandler Coaches client experience. She guides clients through our leadership assessment process and effectively handles many organizational and logistical details of our business.
Her kids joke that she’s the “Chandler Handler” because she is instrumental in helping Lisa C run a smooth operation.
Lisa is a self-employed management consultant working in many diverse fields. She has a record of positive working relations with officials in the municipal, provincial, and federal public service, with private enterprise, with educators, and with the community at large.
She has strong decision-making, time management, conceptual, analytical, and communication skills. Lisa is dedicated to organization and efficiency, and she thrives in a challenging and changing environment.
Lisa’s other employment contracts include serving as the Executive Director of a non-profit industry association and as the Marketing and Events Manager for a local historic property. She currently volunteers as a Board member with Big Brothers Big Sisters PEI, and as the President of the UPEI Alumni Association.
