Who we are

TPTC in a few words...

TPTC is an executive coaching firm turned into a start-up. This means that we respect the performance expectations associated with the coaching profession but that we also offer bigger companies a disruptive innovation aimed at making the selection of coaches easier and personalized.

Our database includes over 200 coachs, from France and abroad, that have been carefully audited by our Supervision Council based on very demanding criteria

The place to coach

A matching algorithm based on quotes from famous and inspiring leaders.

Our matching algorithm relies on choosing, based on your values, one quote out of a pair. These were selected by our team and supervisory council and are from inspiring leaders such as Steve Jobs, Winston Churchill or Mohandas Gandhi.

The algorithm then proposes 3 coaches to meet :
- The PERFECT FIT (close to 100% of common answers),
- The ALTER COACH (close to 0%),
- The HYBRID COACH (around 50%).

TIMOTHÉE FERRAS, FOUNDER AND CEO OF THE PLACE TO COACH

Timothée is a Senior Executive with 7 years as marketing manager (Mondelez, L’Oréal), 13 years in HR consulting and as an Human Resource Director ( Zodiac, Natixis, ICP) then created The Place To Coach in 2015. He is also a member of the Lab RH and of the Career Commission of ESCP Europe and the co founder of HappyTech..

Our unique solution to manage your coaching

100% real and face to face coaching

All our coaches have professional experience in business at Management Committee levels. They respect criteria of excellence, requirement and humility in relation to their profession. THE PLACE TO COACH has a Supervisory Board, co-chaired by Vincent Lenhardt (Transformance Pro), and Annie Cottet (SF Coach 2014-2017), and we are in permanent dialogue with the Presidents of 3 Coaching Federations (SF Coach, EMCC, ICF). We are partners of the EMCC Colloquium (2017 and 2018) and the ICF Forum (2017). Many of us are SF Coach licensees or certified. TPTC now federates 50 coaches in France + International, and ultimately aims for 1,000 certified coaches in its eco-system. Our quality label is based on the certification system of the best schools of coaching, and certification of federations.

The Alchemy of a fruitful encounter

"80% of the effectiveness of coaching is the quality of the relationship" Our matching algorithm is an attempt to predict the quality of the relationship. Our concept is based on a well-known fundamental of the best coaching schools: the transferential relationship. Emotions are present in coaching, they are at the service of the liberation of the individual and the effectiveness of coaching. Without ignoring the mystery that lies in the Alchemy of the encounter, and with lucidity, our algorithm questions each party on his vision and leadership style, and on his leadership or coaching identity.
