Leadership Development & Coaching

Change management, conflict management, and team building are not just buzzwords. They are areas where many organizations need to focus effort and training. The sharpening of these fundamental skills, through leadership development, can be the catalyst for strong and positive organizational change and growth.

At Satori Consulting Inc. we collaborate with you and your teams to create leadership development solutions that integrate with your strategic objectives and align with your corporate culture. Where organizations rely more and more on collaborative and team based decision making, we focus on team development and individual leadership development equally, creating programs that are customized to the needs of the organization.

Our custom tailored programs, assessments, and benchmarking support the development of leaders by identifying individual and team based gaps, creating space for perspective transformation, understanding personal impact and by ultimately tearing down the barriers that limit potential.

Conflict is a natural, albeit challenging component of human relationships. The TKI is designed to measure a person’s behaviour in conflict situations. “Conflict situations” are those in which the concerns of two people appear to be incompatible. In such situations, we can describe an individual’s behaviour along two dimensions: (1) assertiveness, the extent to which the person attempts to satisfy his own concerns, and (2) cooperativeness, the extent to which the person attempts to satisfy the other person’s concerns. These assessed behaviours can be used to establish methods of handling conflicts. The TKI has been a leader in conflict resolution assessment for more than forty years. The TKI is an online assessment that takes about 15 minutes to complete.
