Our Story


Pear's founders, a group of professional women, each previously served in various leadership and senior support roles. They realized that there was a gap in the learning curve when it came to developing leadership skills. Each of them thrived on becoming better leaders-- did research, read books, took various courses, etc.-- which helped their development to a degree, but the development of the leaders around and above them was still lacking. Working with executive coaches changed everything. Out of a passion to bring these resources to other new, emerging and millennial leaders like themselves, together, they decided to start a business that would not only "pear" excellent coaches with managers hungry for development, but were also dedicated to supporting corporate HR professionals leading management development initiatives by managing the entire process. Best of all, they are diligently striving to incorporate technology into this booming field and are currently working to develop an industry-leading platform to further expand their services.
