Leadership Development

 
Sat on the Rocks

Rudy Massimo believes that Leaders need to demonstrate active, authentic and positive leadership. How leaders adapt to change will determine their organization’s success. Status quo is not an option. Leaders need a roadmap and the courage to navigate through the uncertainty. It requires a paradigm shift that will allow them to see challenges as opportunities. Rudy often says, “Leadership is the ability to see through roadblocks.”


Our associates have extensive experience working with senior leaders and their teams. We can deliver a one-day workshop, to multi-day retreats. Over the years, we have organized and led unique outdoor experiences to bring teams closer together, from a canoe trip to a day of rock climbing. Sometimes, the best thing a team can do is leave the office to gain a fresh perspective.

Leadership Development Services

Business Meeting

Leadership Coaching and Advising

We provide executive coaching to senior leaders and leadership teams. We act as advisors to key members of your organization to support your strategic direction, and help you make effective decisions that are future-oriented. 
If needed, we will conduct a team assessment to ensure that you have the right people and teams in place, and that they have complementary skills to be effective in their roles.

Outdoor Activity

Experiential Growth

Over the years, we have designed a number of customized adventure experiences for individuals, families and organizations. They have used adventure travel as a unique and exciting way to raise funds for schools and charitable organizations, bring families closer together, or simply offer an opportunity to experience a new adventure. We offer customized executive and family expeditions. Through the integration of hands-on experiences and leadership skills development, we can design an expedition created uniquely to build skills and increase growth. Previous trips have ranged from climbing expeditions up Mt. Kilimanjaro, dog sledding in the Yukon, canoe tripping in Northern Ontario to a cycling adventure in British Columbia. The types of adventures we can organize for you have no limits.

Conference

Interim Leadership

We offer interim leadership solutions to support your organization through periods of crisis and transitions. In some cases, it is wise to bring in an interim leader after a longstanding executive has retired or moved on. It allows your organization to do a proper audit and determine the skills and experiences you are looking for in your next leader, knowing that an experienced leader is in place during this period of transition, which ensures stability.
