Kim Ades is president and founder of Frame of Mind Coaching and JournalEngine™ Software. Author, speaker, entrepreneur, coach, and mother of five, Kim is one of North America’s foremost experts on coaching with a focus on mindset and thought mastery. By using her unique process of combining coaching with journaling, she works with clients who are intelligent, driven and ambitious, and helps them examine and shift their thinking in order to yield extraordinary results.
After earning an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Kim received her MBA from the University of Ottawa.
Between 1995 and 2005, Kim was the founder and president of Upward Motion and is well known for dramatically penetrating the international real estate industry with a web-based assessment tool for the recruitment, selection and training of top performing real estate agents.
During that period Kim worked intimately with brokers to help them identify the characteristics, traits and behaviours of individuals who had the potential to be outstanding sales agents. Her expertise in this area makes her one of the industry’s leaders on performance and success. As a result of her years of study, data analysis, and working with thousands of sales professionals, she has discovered that while top performers have a variety of different personality traits and execute different strategies to acquire their success, there really is only one substantial difference between top performers and others: their frame of mind.
Kim designed the Frame of Mind Coaching program to provide her clients with a powerful infrastructure where they could develop the skill of deliberate thought. Kim understands that the single greatest difference between those people who are stratospherically successful and everyone else is their thinking. She knows that we all have the propensity to shift our thinking and achieve success.
