Word on the street

Over the past twenty years, KESA has been immersed in developing world-class team facilitation processes. What makes us exceptional is our unique coach approach to facilitation. Using an effective process, combined with the right set of questions, we facilitate conversations that result in genuine engagement and ownership of the best solutions, strategies, and actions for the challenge or opportunity at hand.

We bring kesa in once a month to work with our high level management group on helping us navigate our way through succession and re-vitalization in the manufacturing division of Edmonton Exchanger.

They have been a good sounding board with good advise and analytical processes to help us through the journey. We are counting on their continued help in the future!.

Larry Gusse
President, Edmonton Exchanger Group Of Companies

Thank you for the guidance, understanding and knowledge that the KESA team brought to NorthWind. The extensive Leadership training provided to (and with) our top managers has had a significant and positive impact on our operations and the processes we observe as a company.

I am confident that the Company Core Values we developed within the sessions are truly one of the most valuable resources we will use to move forward and grow, both individually and as a company. Our Values are central to our every decision and are the starting point when executing the Triage Leadership strategies we learned throughout the process.

You have helped us create a culture of communication, transparency and accountability that is universally essential for all generations within our team. As we look to “Raise the Bar”, thank you for providing the intellectual tools to do it!

Patti Glenn
Internal Operations & Facilities Manager, NorthWind Land Resources

The KESA team led us through a process to articulate our purpose and culture and to define our key strategic priorities for the coming years. This involved them quickly getting up to speed on our industry dynamics and business model and leading us through an analysis of our external environment as well as a candid assessment of our internal capabilities.

From the outset of the process to implementation of the strategic initiatives, the KESA team provided us with tailored frameworks and tools as well as effective thought partnership.
