“I've rarely experienced a 'training' program that so effectively combines rigorous methodology with generous heart. I now have a living compendium of precise, relevant practices.”
“Working with Joanne and Laura has been transformational at many levels of my life. Through their Integral Coaching® training, I have come to understand what “being human” means.”
“Integral Coaching Canada provides what we believe is the most complete and comprehensive coaching program available. ”
“Follow your Smile”, could be my motto!
I try to keep it as a guide to what I do in my Life. And today, I truly love what I do! What is your inner smile and do you follow it in front of decisions, challenges?
After having held several HR roles in different industries and countries in Europe, I am today juggling – with a smile– between my own freelance activities and my senior HR role in the corporate world of a large global company. It gives me the opportunity to support people development in different forms: facilitation and Leadership development training for international Leaders and teams; individual and team coaching....with a smile.
I Live in Munich with my wife and my 2 daughters.
As a professional bicycle stunt rider, making the impossible seem effortless might seem a natural theme for Ryan. But to begin this fifteen-year career as an athlete and independent business person while still in high school takes effortless impossibility to a different level. It is these skills, experiences and intent that Ryan brings to his coaching practice.
What is ‘impossible’ in your life right now? Ryan dares you to consider this question as a doorway to greater meaning, fulfillment, and purpose. It is a deep privilege to support individuals in change, and Ryan seeks to build a co-creative trust with clients such that their unique gifts begin flowing more effortlessly, and the impossible indeed becomes possible.

I support talented and skilled professionals to do more in less time, and thereby increase their well being and impact in our world.
Do you recognize the following?
- Todo's that stay on your list forever
- Feeling overwhelmed and out of control
- Not having enough time, energy and motivation
- Chaos in your head
- Feeling you're doing the wrong things at the wrong time
This can be highly frustrating and stressfull, for yourself as well as for the people close to you.
As a coach I therefore specialize in Personal Productivity; I guide people to more effectively make use of of their personal resources.
A little bit about me: I studied geography and made a career as Geopgraphic Information System Specialist. I'm also fascinated by human growth and development, and my longing to actually work in that field motivated me to become an Integral Coach. As for hobbies I practice Aikido and Contact Improvisation (dancing), and I like to spend time in nature and do outside acitivities like hiking and camping.
I offer coaching to leaders in the non-profit and private sectors in East Africa, and beyond. I work with clients who want to be more effective – in their work or home life - but are not sure where to start. I support them to develop the capabilities they need with my wisdom, wit, deep care and commitment. I work with my clients where they are, helping them to grow as leaders.
I came to Integral Coaching Canada through a 20 year career of being curious about people: as a radio and written journalist in the UK, founder of a girls’ rights and football (soccer) program in Kenya and now working in human and organizational transformation, girls’ sport and development and communications for change.
I live on the coast of Kenya with my husband, our three children and too many animals! I love to meditate, walk on the beach, run and play football.

Artistry in Coaching
I am an artist, entrepreneur, business owner, independent consultant, dynamo! I have over 15 years of Information Technology Corporate experience working in Organizational Change Management, Senior Project Management, Client Relationship Management, Software Training, Business Analysis, Business Process Improvement and more, providing a well-rounded and adaptable set of skills and awareness of how change impacts all areas of business and people. Leveraging many years of project management skill into a focus on change and creativity as healing and possibility, my mission is to incite and drive creative nuggets out of my clients in an ongoing mission to alleviate the impacts of Personal, Executive or Organizational Change and bring deep color, new and innovative options and realized beauty to their lives.
I approach life enthusiastically and with an abundance of curiosity and fire. I wear my true colors proudly, brazenly and unapologetically. Brutally honest, I am spaciously kind and wholly dedicated to my own development in service of discovery, in service to others. Life must be loved and lived to the fullest, and for me this includes travelling and exploring the beauty of our planet with awe and wide-eyed wonder. I find creative inspiration in people and places, in books and in music (from Puccini to ACDC), in nature and in urban settings, in noise and in silence – and I want to inspire that in others.
I also work with non – profit organizations to offer free coaching to mission based and low budget programs, sharing the beautiful benefits of this amazing method with those that would not otherwise have exposure to it and I am soon to be working on some special projects with Artists In Healthcare Manitoba, who bring artists and musicians together to provide soothing experiences and joy to the sick and terminal ill.
My many loves are my family, painting, travelling, reading, knitting, learning and sitting with deep gratitude in the nature of my cottage.
