If we haven't met yet, my name is Lily Rogers and I live in Vancouver, BC. I grew up in Southern Ontario, and graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in Communication and Political Science. Since then, I've been working for Shopify in various leadership and individual contributor roles. When I'm not working, I'm writing, cooking, adding to my record collection, hiking, and attempting to develop a green thumb.
It has been a wild ride since entering the 'real world', and I've experienced first hand what it feels like to burn out (I wrote about it here), and what it feels like to start to question the path you're on. I've also experienced just how important it is to ask those questions and listen to your inner voice. I fundamentally believe we all know deep down when we're on the wrong path - whether it's in our career, relationships, or our physical and mental health.
I also know that starting to listen to our inner voice can be terrifying and often times confusing. The fear I felt when listening to mine has stayed with me, and is what prompted me to become a coach. Sometimes you need someone to walk beside you on the journey of getting real with yourself, and that's what I'm here for.
To me, coaching is the practice of connecting with what you know deep down about yourself, and bringing it to the material world through your actions, thoughts, feelings, plans, relationships, and energy.
I'm a certified Associate Coach through Integral Coaching Canada (ICC). I chose to work with ICC due to their belief in acknowledging all the complexities of individuals, and honouring those complexities. While I will help you dig deep to land on a specific topic to work on throughout our time together, I ask you to bring your full self to the coaching relationship.
I'm specifically looking to work with young people who are facing a transition in life, or thinking of making a transition, or maybe just getting a slight nudge that they should start thinking about making one. The people I work with are usually between the ages of 23-28, but please feel free to connect even if you fall outside that range.
The typical coaching program is six sessions over the course of six months. This requires a commitment on my part and yours to ensure a successful program.
Given I've started my coaching practice recently, I'm looking to offer coaching on a pay-what-you-want basis.
At this time, I'm looking to work with clients who are based in Vancouver. I may look into offering remote coaching in the future.
If your interest is piqued, please feel free to book a time for a free 30-minute discovery call. We'll use that time to get to know each other and determine if working together is the right next step for both of us.
P.S. If you want to know more about me - I did a keynote presentation in January of this year about my career path and experience with burnout. Watch below 👇🏻
