Kim Ades, MBA
President and Founder, Frame of Mind Coaching - Toronto, ON, Canada

Kim Ades

Kim Ades, MBA, President of Frame of Mind Coaching is one of North America’s foremost experts on performance through thought management. By using her unique process of coaching through journaling, she works with companies, management teams and individual clients to unveil and switch their thought patterns to ignite significant change and life transformation. 

After earning an undergraduate degree in Psychology, she 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 product called the Real Estate Simulator, 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 foremost experts on performance and success. As a result of her years of study and data analysis, and literally 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 supportive 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. 

The foundation for creating Frame of Mind Coaching lies in Kim’s ardent belief in journaling as the absolutely most effective and profound vehicle to make substantive and lasting changes in your life and career. As such Kim and her team at Frame of Mind Coaching have just launched a new groundbreaking new software application for on-line journaling called Frame of Mind Coaching that allows everyone to experience the significant benefits of journaling. 

She is also a regular contributor to a growing series of national real estate publications, including Frog Pond Magazine, RISMedia's National Real Estate and Relocation Magazine, and Real Estate Professional Magazine. She is known by her peers as an elite expert around sales and relationships, recently validated by being recognized as one of North America’s Top 50 most influential women in real estate. 

Kim is recognized for her warmth, her passion and her instinctive talent for seeing the strengths of her clients and helping them discover the path to their own success. She is creative in her approach, honest, perceptive and forms a genuine connection with her clients, building a solid bond of trust and growth. Frame of Mind Coaching use a unique process of journaling through which she works with clients to unveil and switch their thought patterns to ignite significant change and life transformation.

Kim lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband and five incredible children. For her, family is paramount, and this priority remains at the core of all her endeavors.
