About Trina Hamilton

I'm a leadership consultant and professional coach who helps people bring life into their leadership and leadership into their life.

My career is at a beautiful intersection of my lived experiences, my skills, and my purpose. It has brought me to this place, where I can help others recover to their unique way of being in the world so they can live and lead from the best parts of themselves.

I help people Recover to Lead.

I’ve learned how to recover by recovering. From all life’s stuff. Assault and trauma. An eating disorder. Overwork and hyper-productivity. Deep grief and loss. Cancer. And, most recently, addiction to alcohol. That’s a particular kind of recovery—one full of shame and secrets. Yet it was from that darkness that I found the courage to look back on my life and see my inner resilience in a new light.

Resilience is not about pulling up your bootstraps and carrying on. It’s not about bouncing back. Resilience is about the ability to stay with what is happening around us long enough to recover our essential self again—our most natural, creative and empowered self beneath the chaos of our circumstance.

The capacity to Recover to Lead is an essential leadership skill in our chaotic world.

My 30-year career in corporate education and leadership development has spanned several industries and geographies including global high-tech firms, Canadian and US telecommunications, provincial government, retail banking, and healthcare.

I’ve created and facilitated large-scale professional and leadership development programs, consulted with and coached senior leaders and executives, and facilitated at the executive and board level. I have a Masters in Education and two coaching certifications (CPCC and ACC). Check out my LinkedIn profile for a deeper dive into my street cred.
