IHHP is proud to introduce you to our Coaches

An elite athlete doesn’t train by him or herself. He or she depends very heavily on a coach to help them perform under the immense pressure they face. Why should you be any different?

“John was always able to grab onto a nugget (impactful piece of information) I shared. From there, he tied it back to the work I did, not only in attending the 360 class as a learner, also in ways that would be beneficial for me to share when I am serving as a facilitator. I appreciate John’s listening ability, and willingness to work with me on the “hard” or difficult situations so I would be able to move through those quicker in the future.”

John directs the corporate coaching services and oversees all of IHHP’s Coaching personnel. John brings a unique set of skills and experience from the fields of human development and health care.

In his coaching practice, John works with individuals, teams and groups to enable people to sharpen their leadership and communication skills through intentional, authentic relationships grounded in Emotional Intelligence and using a system-based approach.

Lisa Garber, Coach
Lisa was one of IHHP’s and Canada’s first professional coaches and is known internationally!


“Lisa was amazing in her capacity to connect with me and to bring in the EI 360 to support the work we did. She was empathetic, intuitive and great at clarifying issues and summarizing progress. The greatest quality about Lisa is her way of being direct, to say things as they are and in a way that does not create defensiveness. She provided me with a perspective that allowed me to grow in a very short time, three sessions, in different aspects of my work and my life.”

Lisa has coached individuals and teams throughout her successful career and is valued for her ability to help her clients take their leadership to the next level by applying EQ concepts and strategies has made her a highly sought-after Executive coach.

Lisa’s coaching methods have proven effective in what leaders are looking for: ways to inspire, motivate, manage and succeed.

Sharon Lewis, Coach
Sharon helps executives, managers and teams from around the world to sharpen their leadership skills and become high performers.

“Sharon made me feel extremely comfortable opening up about topics that are generally uncomfortable to discuss. Everything worked very well and she was accommodating, always well prepared and it was a pleasure working with her.”

She is accredited through the International Coaches Federation, Team Coaching International and The Leadership Circle. By leveraging the concepts of Emotional Intelligence, Sharon’s results-based coaching style helps leaders learn to face change head-on, communicate more clearly and deal more effectively with challenging situations and people.

Sharon’s extensive business experience – including sectors as diverse as Construction Management, Information Technology, and Team and Leadership Development – makes her invaluable as an executive coach.


Peter Taylor, Coach
Peter works with individuals and organizations committed to fully utilizing their technical capabilities.

“Peter was a fabulous coach! He really helped me to focus on the positive behaviours and how to handle difficult situations. He was engaged and took the time to consider my issues when problem solving and was very empathetic.”

He has coached individuals and teams around the world and discovered that the vast majority of coachees want to become more effective.

Peter’s challenge is to support his clients as they gain competence in their ability to interact even more productively with others. Once they begin to see the impact of incorporating emotional intelligence as their operating system, their confidence grows and they can go on without a coach…

He also led a retail computer training company with twenty-four sites across Ontario. He is a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) and a Certified Training & Development Professional (CTDP).
