Elisa Spain

LSI Founding Instructor & Executive Coach

Elisa Spain is an executive life coach. Throughout her life, Elisa has followed her commitment to excellence. Building on her own professional and personal experience, Elisa’s coaching approach has evolved from executive coaching to coaching executives in living their full lives. Her clients include CEOs and C-suite executives from Inc. 500 companies, Crain’s Fast 50, Chicago Tribune’s Top 100 Workplaces, and Crain’s Largest Privately Held Companies.

Elisa created the YOU PIVOT™ Program as a process that guides clients through career and life transitions. Understanding that careers, like software, require updates to keep them fresh, this immersive program catalyzes leaders to embrace change, tap into their greatness, and explore a better version of themselves. Whether you are exiting your business, making a career change that requires a new tomorrow story, or making an executive pivot to a role that requires a new version of you, the YOU PIVOT™ program provides the framework for the transition.

Elisa has walked in the shoes of the leaders she serves. Her experience as a Fortune 500 company executive at Northern Trust, a Vistage Master Chair leading a CEO peer advisory board for fifteen years, coupled with her successful pivot from the corporate world into entrepreneurship, has shaped her unique perspective. The result is a flexible coaching style that enables her to deliver superior results to achievement-driven CEOs, business owners, and C-Suite executives. Elisa holds an MBA in Finance and Marketing from Kellogg GSM, Northwestern University; Chartered Financial Analyst, Level I; and a BS from Florida International University. In addition to being a founding instructor and executive life coach with LSI, she is also an advisor to the founder of Firehouse Community Arts Center and a member of the Advisory Board for the Independence Equity I, LP Venture Fund.
