MY PROFILE
Lynne Dee Sproule  M.Ed.(adult education), Integral Master Coach™
Founder & Principal, IRIS Coaching & Consulting

I am originally from northern Ontario, where I was lucky to grow up surrounded by Group of Seven landscapes.  I left to do a bachelor’s degree in English at the University of Guelph, and then a masters’ degree in adult education at the University of Toronto.   After graduating, I spent ten years as a development, governance and organizational consultant to Indigenous governments at local and regional levels, primarily in northern areas of the country.  I served national Indigenous, humanitarian and social justice organizations as a research and policy consultant through the same period.

I have over twenty years of experience managing federal social policy, research and programs in health, learning and skills development, public law and gender equality.   In that time, I was recognized with three public policy leadership awards.  Most satisfying was the one for initiating and spearheading the gender equality initiative at the Department of Justice.

Over the years, I’ve also enjoyed teaching undergraduate and graduate courses at Carleton University (Social Work, Public Administration, Law), including for the on-site Bachelor of Social Work program delivered in First Nations communities.

To certify as an Integral Master Coach™ I pursued an 18 month intensive training program with  Integral Coaching Canada® (ICC). Accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) since 2004, the certification standards of ICC exceed those of the ICF.  I coach clients privately and in the workplace to successfully navigate important transitions and challenges in their lives.

Through IRIS Coaching & Consulting I now offer service that capitalizes on decades of professional experience across different sectors and the expertise and wisdom I have been able to acquire along the way.
