Mountain Air Coaching develops intentional leadership in those who transform society

About Mountain Air Coaching

Purpose: To transform society, better.

Society needs to transform. We’ve become disconnected from a shared purpose to give us meaning, values to guide us, or a vision to motivate us. As a result we see crises – climate change, inequality, pandemic, war, misinformation and mistrust – confronting us and risking the future.

Although the world around you often seems oblivious to this need for transformation, you’ve recognised the disconnect and want better. You know a more equitable and sustainable future is possible and you’re actively working to build it.

Mission: Help those who transform society to be their best.

You have moments of being your best self, but also often feel stretched thin by infinite demands and constant change. You know it’s possible to be your best self more consistently, and that your best can transform society – better. But, much of the support you come across is offered with an undercurrent of the disconnected motives you’re working to transform.

We are at our best when we’re helping you be your best. Mountain Air helps you explore who you are, what you want, and how you’ll get there. We support you – with coaching, facilitation, and leadership programming – to be a more intentional leader, so that you can be your best as you make our systems more equitable and sustainable.

Vision: A compassionate society, connected with nature.

Imagine what’s possible.

Enhance your culture, increase your fulfilment, and grow your impact as you work towards your purpose and vision. Your best is possible, and can make a better world possible.

Coaching Presence

Calm energy. Patient bravery.

Hi, I’m Evan, and I founded Mountain Air Coaching.

I am calm, patient, trusting, and curious. And I am motivated by enabling others to be and do their absolute best, which I do in my roles as a coach, trainer, consultant, and campaigner. I’m passionate about coaching, and supporting people to explore who they are at their core, so they can be intentional about who they want to become while appreciating who they are in the present.

Following a BA in Political Science from St Francis Xavier on the East coast of Canada I stumbled into work in political offices in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta. Immersion in the politics that sit behind policy quickly forced me to consider my personal beliefs and values, and also made me appreciate the capacity to affect social and environmental change at a macro level. But I also struggled to understand what truly motivated me or where I wanted these roles to lead. Beginning to pose these questions to myself, I enrolled in a MSc in Health, Population and Society from the London School of Economics, after which I faced the dreaded question, “what do I really want?” head on. After a year of confused searching I found a London-based program called On Purpose that explores what it means to be a purposeful leader with a positive impact. Through the program I did consulting work in health and social care, and strategy setting and impact management for a B-Corp law firm. With the support of the program – which included coaching, mentorship, peer support, and training – I became able to articulate that I’m personally motivated by enabling others to be their best. This led me to a Post-Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching through Royal Roads University from the West coast of Canada.

Currently I’m in Calgary, Canada, where my aim is to support others who want to understand themselves more deeply, as well as those who are actively seeking systems change towards equity and conservation. To energize I hike, camp, run, play soccer(/football), read, meditate, and dominate friends on the Risk board.
