Biographical Info

I am inspired when I hear my clients pause and say... "ah ha"! It is at this moment a shift is about to take place.

Coaching & Training:
When people work together day after day they form patterns of communication and responses. From time to time, those patterns need to be interrupted so that better results can emerge. I lead people through a learning process to: examine the impact they have on colleagues; adjust and add new skills; and I hold them accountable to continuously practice and strive to embody effective leader behaviour and attitudes. My clients are moved from their static position they have become accustomed to and move from knowing what 'right' looks like to doing it.

One-with-One Coaching:
Small business owners and senior leaders who want to push themselves to achieve personal goals and milestones thrive in a one-with-one coaching contract. Successful & experienced leaders impact their future and their company when they make "slight-edge" improvements. The difference between a silver and a gold metal is measured in fractions of time/distance/weight. So too is leadership and personal success.

Building Teams:
When an employee can utilize their strengths 80% of their work day, they are engaged, productive, happy and fulfilled. I help business owners and senior leaders to identify, select and orient the right person to fit the job position.

I have worked with local community, national and international charities for over 25 years. I have built and lead high performing teams. I have attracted expert and influential members to Boards of Directors. I have guided the transition from operational to governance boards, developing highly differentiated and professional teams to exceed short and long term goals. I bring an entrepreneurial framework to assess and grow social enterprise opportunities.

by MARC LACOURSIÈRE on JUNE 3, 2019 In her 1987 book, That’s Not What I Meant Deborah Tannen highlights how where we’re from, our life experiences, culture, generational and other factors contribute to the way we communicate. Rather than creating a culture in our organizations where everyone is the same, Tannen reinforces the need to recognize the differences in […]

A World of Mendacity

by WAYNE VANWYCK on MAY 21, 2019 A theme of the play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is mendacity, an interesting word that means lies and untruths. The play reveals an intricate web of lies within a dysfunctional family and examines the discrepancy between who people pretend to be and who they actually are. The characters lie about […]

Priorities…. Where Do I Begin!

by MARC LACOURSIÈRE on JULY 16, 2018 Trust is an important element of successful strategic planning. Every year, usually in the last fiscal quarter, senior leadership teams book an offsite meeting to set strategic objectives for the coming year. Perhaps part of that day is spent looking in the rear view mirror assessing what did or did not […]

A shoe maker with a good pair of shoes?!

In my work, time management is like a good pair of shoes to a shoemaker. The original version of saying is “The cobbler’s children go unshod.” It means that the cobbler spends so much time looking after his customers’ needs that he has no time for his children’s. (Thank-you google) Over the holiday season, I determined […]
