Executive coaching

You and your top leaders haven’t got the time to sit in a room with a bunch of schlubs. You’re fast, nimble and hungry. You want the info now, you want it to be directly applicable to your work today and you want results tomorrow. I can give you that.

Board / Staff Retreats

You hate them. Your boss hates them. Your team calls them boring retreats for a reason. I once sat through a two-day SWOT analysis, and at the end, I had more work and less clarity on how to do it. No one should have to suffer as I have suffered. I’ll make your retreat energizing, engaging and productive. In the end, you’ll have the kind of clear direction that you can use to build a robust strategic plan.

What People are Saying

“I met Ken a few months ago at a full-day workshop for Resilience Calgary, and Ken was the facilitator. He made the day fabulous. Right from the start, his engaging style, positive demeanour, energetic presence as well as his validating responses were remarkable.

“I came away feeling empowered by his highly inclusive gestures and comments and I admired how he used various tools to communicate with the audience: cards, story, brainstorming, etc.

“He kept the day moving even at that dreary 2:30 pm time slot! What a feat!

“He was intuitively attentive to the group’s needs and managed the day with patience and determination, as the day took a few turns and took us where none of us had earlier envisioned. It was an amazing and productive day and Ken had a lot to do with this. Thank you Ken!” Din Ladak, University of Calgary

“Ken empowered me to think creatively in an executive capacity.

“He was able to frame our Board’s strategic session around the merits of my strategic plan, effectively unifying our team towards common goals and allowing all voices to be heard and incorporated.

“The good work that was done in that session continues to be the Jubilees’ (temporarily halted) plan moving forward and I’m grateful to Ken for his continued association with our Society. ”

Jonathan Love, Executive Director
