Welcoming Lynn Lauzier
Updated: Sep 23, 2021
Lynn Lauzier brings a wealth of personal experience to her work as a leadership coach, particularly the ability to regroup and pursue new opportunities during difficult times.
Lynn was well-established in the business sector where she worked for nearly 30 years in various marketing and sales departments, leading multiple teams and nurturing new talent as a sales manager. Then Lise Watier Cosmétiques, a Canadian cosmetic company she had been with for many years, was sold and she found herself looking for her next opportunity.
The ability to pivot is a quality leadership coaches try to nurture in their clients, and Lynn knows from her own experience how important it is for success in business, and in life.
“It was a blessing in disguise,” she says of being forced to leave her job in sales and pursue a new career in coaching.
“As a manager, I was passionate about working with people and helping them identify their goals and how to reach them. So when the company was sold, it was crystal clear to me that coaching was what I was going to do, that I was going to help people reach and exceed their goals.”
A graduate of Business Administration, Marketing Management from Laval University in Quebec City, Lynn earned her Certified Executive Coach designation from Royal Roads University in Victoria and is accredited by the International Coaching Federation.
I’m delighted to announce that Lynn, a fluently bilingual and internationally accredited coach, has joined the Vision Coaching team.
Lynn describes executive coaching as her life’s passion. She is recognized for her ability to develop meaningful relationships and dedicated, engaged teams. Enriched by her own experience, her training and more than 1,200 hours of coaching, Lynn specializes in helping executives achieve their goals through leadership coaching.
Lynn believes the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the business environment. She says the impact of the virtual office has been to magnify shortcomings that existed before, especially weaknesses in leadership.
People have changed
“When you go full virtual, weaknesses are more apparent,” she says. “People who had difficulty mobilizing their teams, those problems became bigger. A good leader stays a good leader but for executives struggling with leadership, the problems have become more apparent. Emotional intelligence was starting to be a key competency but now it is a core competency. When people are alone at home, if you don’t have enough emotional intelligence and empathy, you lose your people.”
She says there have been recent reports that large numbers of employees want to leave their employers because of the way they were treated during the pandemic. New skills and more empathy will be needed to maintain strong employer-employee relations.
“Companies and people have changed … It is never going to come back the way it was before,” she says.
Fortunately, Lynn excels at helping leaders and teams pivot and succeed during times of deep, transformative change. Through her energy, listening skills and her passion, Lynn is able to steer her clients in dynamic and creative directions.
