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.
Business coaching and executive coaching are embedded in the fabric of many future focused organizations. The use of an unbiased, external, professional business coach to support change initiatives, resolve conflict, increase employee engagement, and develop underutilized leadership skills enables organizations to optimize talent management and retention, aligning individuals and teams to the overall business strategy and vision.
Benefits of Coaching:
Clarity of individual strengths
Ability to build resilience to deal with challenges
Improved leadership and communication skills
We support leaders in their journey by understanding where they are, where they need to be, and the gaps between the two destinations. We work with leaders to enhance their ability to motivate, influence, incite passion, and transcend their own self-interest for the greater good of the organization. Helping them to become transformational leaders.

In working with Manie, I was able to take the time to reflect and look at situations from new perspectives. She challenged me to ‘dig’ for answers (solutions) within and my new level of self-awareness has propelled me to move forward in my leadership journey. Manie is authentic, positive, curious and resourceful. I would highly recommend her as a Business Coach.”

Workplace conflict can be productive or paralyzing. Conflict triggers different emotions and behaviours in each of us. Since conflict differs depending on the people and situations involved, there is no one answer to make it productive. The Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict program recognizes that your responses to conflict situations are in your control. Rather than focussing on conflict resolution, this workshop targets the reduction of destructive thoughts and behaviours so that conflict can become more productive.
The Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict Assessment and Profile provides an in-depth 20 page, personalized report that highlights techniques to improve self-awareness around conflict.
The online assessment portion takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and produces a workplace specific profile report. The workshop is designed to be a half day interactive session.

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.
The MBTI® Team Profile provides the ideal starting point for teams that want to get to know each other to improve their productivity.
