Who I am

Hello and Welcome.  I’m Patricia Zeggelaar.

Patricia Zeggelaar

I am the owner and consulting partner with Integrated People Solutions.

As a Learning Consultant, Educator and Facilitator, my goal is to always provide my clients with a powerful learning experience that translates into a more effective and a more meaningful workplace. My area of specialization is in assisting individuals to increase their awareness, understanding and ability to function at higher levels of performance and personal satisfaction. My main goal is always to help people to identify and take responsibility for their behaviours, develop their own sense of empowerment and make greater contributions to organizational success. I help organizations increase the efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction of their most important asset – people.

For more than twenty years, I have applied my skill and expertise to a variety of organizations. I have extensive experience managing a vast variety of client projects and have worked with small and large companies as well as those in the private, public and not for profit sectors. As a facilitator my expertise is to encourage honest participation from all individuals even with topics that are perceived as stressful and frustrating. As an educator I have the ability to provide participants with valuable, relevant and useful information in a way that everyone finds enjoyable. I have delivered workshops around such topics leadership assessment and development, effective feedback skills, employee opinion, teamwork, engagement, core values and conflict management.

A native of Halifax, I studied psychology at Dalhousie University. I have a certificate from Will Schultz and Associates in California, specializing in behaviour feedback. I am fully certified in the administration and application of the “Myers-Briggs Type Indicator” from American Psychological Testing Association and Herrmann Brain Dominance technology from the Applied Learning Centre in North Carolina. I have also completed a Certificate in Positive Psychology though Kripalu Institute in Massachusetts and a certificate in Organizational Diagnosis from Community at Work out of San Francisco. Prior to my partnership with Integrated People Solutions, I worked as a Senior Learning Consultant with Ledgehill, the corporate training facility and as the Training and Development Manager with Dalhousie University’s Advanced Management Centre.
