We provide leadership development to women in their professional and personal lives.
You don’t need a title to be a leader. We are all leaders because we are the ones leading our lives. We believe that developing your leadership way, be it in your workplace, your community or in your life is an inside-out job. That is, we as women lead best by honouring ourselves through enacting our unique purpose, values, skills, strengths and talents. Coming from this inspirational core and leading from where you are – you can naturally make a profound difference with impact.
“Our women-centred solutions create breakthrough results that are anchored in courage, commitment, passion, discipline, and alignment.”
— Alexandra Salamis, President

Invaluable Advice and Support
I was part of Alexandra’s Change Management team working on the organizations first ever Business Transformation Project. During this time Alexandra’s responsibilities grew. While on the team, she took on the role of coach to all Senior Members of the Project Team, providing invaluable advice and support. Alexandra Salamis is highly effective and comfortable working at both the operational and strategic level. Alexandra’s trust in her team’s abilities was empowering, she was always there to listen, bounce ideas off and provide support with a personal and human touch whenever needed. She respected her teams’ knowledge, experience and contribution to the project and led the team with integrity.
A Life Changer
I came to work with Alexandra Salamis at a turning point in my life. Call it good timing, chance or fate but meeting Alexandra was a life changer. She opened my eyes to realities and new opportunities and she provided me with the tools to put them in place. She not only offered professional, ethical and knowledgeable coaching but went beyond the call of duty by providing a supporting ear, demonstrating empathy and often using humour and her communicative laugh to help me get through difficult moments. I am grateful to call Alexandra my coach, my guide and now my friend.
Creating a High Performance Team
Our executive leadership team was embroiled in conflict and low trust between members was palatable. We worked at crossed purposes with each other. We were a “team” in name only. I realized that this was seriously eroding our effectiveness in providing leadership to the organization and quality to our clients. Alexandra Salamis walked into a minefield and created an atmosphere from the start that was non-threatening, safe yet challenging at the same time. She provided the platform from which we could respectfully address the root causes of our conflict and mistrust. From the beginning, I was skeptical about us becoming a true team again. With authenticity, courage, patience and good humour, Alexandra skillfully worked with our team to turn conflict into cooperation and suspicion into trust. She did a phenomenal job! I highly recommend Alexandra for those who need help with creating and sustaining a high-performance team.
A Trusted Confidant
With a new Deputy Minister, a new Director General and new requirements for streamlining, the need for change became apparent across our branch. As part of the overall branch streamlining efforts, Alexandra Salamis was hired to work with me to develop and implement more efficient and effective work processes in the team I manage. Alex is a great individual. Not only is she knowledgeable but also very approachable and full of positive energy. She knew how to present and introduce changes without creating hostility and was a guiding force during the conception and the implementation of the new processes. Very likeable, Alex has a wonderful personality and one feels like working with a friend, a trusted confident, rather than with a consultant. As a result, better cooperation and understanding were created. Alex helped me to look in a different way at my team’s work in order to streamline some of its components. She demonstrated that change could be good and presented it in such a way that it was well received by the employees. I absolutely recommend Alex.
Out of the Box Solutions That Work
I’ve worked with Alexandra Salamis on a number of projects as well as being coached by her. I highly recommend her for any potential coaching or consulting engagement. She is thoughtful and professional; frequently providing out of the box solutions to seemingly intractable problems. I’ve had a number of coaches in the past and in my experience, Alexandra is the best of them all. She is knowledgeable with extensive hands-on C-suite business experience and expertly manages to walk the fine line between challenge and support.
