Who Is Paula Pyne?
Paula Pyne is a mindful leadership & wellbeing coach, consultant and facilitator— the visionary behind Uplift Consulting. She is known to her clients as an inspiration and a catalyst for long-term, positive, mindful change. Over the years, with commitment and discipline and passion for continuous learning, Paula used several tools to heal herself. Now she helps others do the same, while leading the way to influence change on a much larger scale to alleviate suffering.
With a fascination for the human psyche, Paula elected to take her undergraduate studies in psychology and sociology. After being employed in the field of Social Work, Paula was drawn to the world of business. This move was accompanied by a return to school where she earned her Masters of Business Administration in Executive Management at Royal Roads University and post-graduate diploma in Human Resources Management at Humber College. With a grounding in the humanities and the drive of a businesswoman, Paula began to carve out a niche.
Paula found her passion as the President of the General Motor’s Women’s Advisory Council. She loved leading, inspiring, connecting, and helping women who were facing similar issues and opportunities. On a corporate level, she was energized as the women gained greater visibility through networking, coaching and mentoring opportunities. This experience solidified her belief that surrounding yourself with positive, like-minded people and role models is a key to success.
It was during this time that Paula began turning what she had learned about herself into inspiration for others. She began developing tools to guide others towards living and leading with purpose. Always looking and reaching for the next great thing to accomplish, Paula focused on the “art of being” and caring for oneself.
Paula’s approach to self and leadership development is a unique blend of mindfulness, yoga, integral coaching, positive psychology and business. With these principles in mind, Paula intuitively tailors her work to each person and to each organization to realize success.
Outside of Uplift, Paula is an associate and member of the Telfer Executive Programs, Community of Practice, where she teaches her signature workshop, Wellbeing for Leadership Resilience. She’s a member of the facilitation team, with Wilfred Laurier’s Positive Psychology Certificate Program, where she teaches Self Care. She also shares her wisdom and compassionate spirit online as part of the Huffington Post community and teaches yoga and meditation in her community in Ottawa, Canada.
Paula is a certified Integral Professional Coach™, through Integral Coaching Canada the gold standard in coach training and is an accredited Yoga Teacher. She teaches and practices in her community.
