Coaching & Workshops
I’m excited to be your thinking partner to find the right ideas, decisions, commitments, and risks you need to create change, and support you while you do the work. Unfortunately there’s no secret sauce for success, so I’m not here to just instil fleeting motivation (although motivation is often a great side effect). Achieving results takes consistent hard work, and my collaborative approach is tailored to give you training and tools that will last.
I’m positive, efficient, transparent, and will focus on the goals you really want for your life. To be blunt – no cookie-cutter cliché or trendy meaningless jargon… because who needs that?

Everyone is Different
I don’t make assumptions, and I work with you to find what’s right for you, because progress and productivity isn’t a one-size-fits-all thing. People have different goals and ambitions, as well as different responsibilities and levels of flexibility in their life.
Science is Awesome
The science behind habits, change, success, and hapiness has exploded over the last few years, and old myths are dying fast. I stay up to date on the latest findings and infuse this into everything I do, from coaching, to workshops, and speeches.

Mindset Coach / Small Business Coach / Workshops / Founder / MBA
I get really excited about helping people move towards their goals and watching them transform their lives. Although I don’t always fit the stereotype of a coach (admit it, you have a picture in your head), I’ve always excelled at helping people determine what drives them and creating systems to simplify change.
I spent many years in the corporate world and I’ve worked with large and small companies in many industries including journalism, media, marketing, finance, and retail. This has allowed me a front row seat at different corporate cultures, working environments, and individual productivity styles. I’ve combined this first hand experience with the latest research to create custom solutions for individual clients.
When I’m not coaching, my favourite things include being at the cottage with the dog, fronting my band that plays in Kensington Market, and hot yoga. And last minute spontaneous get togethers with my best people.
Coaching with Stephanie is amazing. She has such an ability to make you focus on what is truly important to you, to help you align your actions to your goals and nudge you in the right direction with unflinching honesty and perseverance! Her coaching is tailored to your needs and always energizing. I highly recommend working with her, plus she is quite cool.Iulianna Calin
Steph has such a fresh approach to coaching people to achieve their goals and vision and be their best potential selves. She understands our fears and our procrastination fall-backs and builds her approach to keep your brain excited and focused on what’s ahead. She is fun, compassionate and truly cares about the outcomes for her clients. If you have been considering hiring a coach, I highly endorse Plaid Paddle to help you go from stuck to success.Nadine Araksi
After a challenging year, I was trying to regain my footing and rediscover my energy and passion. Trying to do it myself resulted only in a constant circle of thoughts. Stephanie helped me break that cycle and focus on my goals by taking small steps that added up to big changes. The coaching was really tailored to me and my needs and gave me not only a renewed sense of energy and purpose but also Steph’s positivity and warmth really inspired me to see things differently. A great experience!Julia Nicholson
