Lily Seto, MA, PCC, ESIA is an Executive and Leadership coach who holds a Masters in
Leadership and Training from Royal Roads University, a Graduate Certificate in Executive
Coaching and a Graduate Certificate in Evidence-Based Coaching and a Diploma in Coaching
Supervision. She is the Past President of the ICF Vancouver Island Chapter.
Lily really began focusing on ethics when she was invited to lead the creation of a coaching
culture in the BC Public Service (of 36,000 employees). This translated into setting up the
process and then hiring and training 16 full time internal coaches, and the ongoing
development and coaching supervision of the cadre. She noticed that there seemed to be
additional ethical considerations when working as an internal coach. That led her to enroll in
the first North America Coaching SuperVision Program 10 years ago. She also was a member of
the ICF Independent Review Board (IRB) which is tasked with investigating any ethical
complaints that are received at ICF. In 2020, Lily was awarded the Global European Mentoring
and Coaching Council (EMCC) award for Excellence in SuperVision.
