We are pleased to announce The Metta-Pauzé Coaching Alliance

 Feb 23, 2016 1:00 PM

We are pleased to announce that Pauzé Coaching of Montreal,  just formed a pancanadian strategic alliance with the Metta Coaching Group based in Toronto. The Metta-Pauzé Coaching Alliance will enable both firms to offer excutive coaching services in both official languages in the country’s main cities, including Vancouver, Calgary and Quebec City.

Both Pauzé Coaching and the Metta Coaching  Group have built a strong bench of over a dozen experienced coaches who have already worked with several hundred executives in organizations of all sizes and industries, either in the private, public or professional sectors.

Jean-Jacques Bourgeault, Practice Leader at  Pauzé Coaching, stresses the fact that all Metta-Pauzé Coaching Alliance coaches have held senior leadership positions and bring a wealth of experience as leaders and executive coaches.  Therefore, they can help leaders thrive through complexity with confidence.

Sara Thompson and Pierre Gravelle, principals of the Metta Coaching Group, highlight the key benefit of having a wide array of coach backgrounds in order to match the best possible profile with the clients’ needs. They also emphasize that the executive coaching services offered by the Alliance are flexible and based on the unique needs of each client and organization.

Executive coaching has now become the preferred approach to develop executives and managers in most organizations. Coaching allows them to step back and reflect on their personal impact and ability to adjust to their ever changing environment. Coaching can be used to satisfy very different needs. Whether it’s to succeed in a new role or to develop one’s strategic thinking, communication, political and management skills, or to take time to reflect with an objective third party, coaching has proven its effectiveness time and time again.

It is very easy to request and organize a free and no-obligation  exploratory session with one or the other of the Metta-Pauzé Coaching Alliance coaches to discuss specific needs and issues where coaching may be helpful.

We can now serve more clients in more Canadian cities regardless of your type of business or industry.


Why Coaching? Why Now?

 Nov 26, 2015 1:00 PM

Leadership requires resiliency. Current research proves that true resiliency comes from within and not from external methods, tools or tricks. To look inside requires humility and vulnerability. External coaches help people to explore their inner thoughts, ideas, hopes, fears, dreams and vulnerabilities. Where else does a leader get to explore deeply without fear of being judged? Amidst a world of complexity, challenge and competing priorities coaches provide a safe sounding board to try on new behaviours.

A word from our coaches

 Oct 7, 2015 1:00 PM

I embraced coaching after a challenging and stimulating career as an executive in the public, private and international sectors. I became acutely aware that rigorous financial and strategic planning alone does not ensure success. To make organizations work and be successful, leaders must deal effectively with their people, build relationships, influence behaviours and lead by example to create a unifying vision, shared values and a supportive culture with a focus on execution and results. My journey of discovery would not have been possible without the help of objective third parties who offered advice, honest feedback, wise counsel and inspiration.

– Pierre Gravelle

Coaching provides a unique opportunity for people to achieve their personal and professional leadership excellence. My passion is leadership development. I have a firm belief that when people harness their strengths and lead from a position of excellence and authenticity, they can have a profound impact on others both personally and professionally. As a two-time winner of the Prism Award for leadership excellence in two large organizations in pharmaceuticals and manufacturing, I have contributed to qualitative and quantitative results achieved through coaching.

– Sara Thompson
