About Your Hone Consulting Team
When we started over 13 years ago, we really just had two workshops which had proven results for nearly three decades (that we bought the rights to facilitate) and a dream: to help leaders and teams develop their untapped potential. We believe (then, now and always) that we can all build capacity, our capabilities, to create more of the positive in the personal and professional lives of ourselves and each other.
Our desire to begin this journey was born directly from our own experience of being in workplaces of negativity, helplessness, disrespect, closed-mindedness and no responsibility. In workplaces where we saw the difference that training and coaching that truly cared about people at a personal level – could make!
We started Hone Consulting during a downturn in the economy, when leaders and teams, more than ever, needed to take their power of choice and influence back. Many personal and professional lives didn’t have nearly as much ‘positive’ as they used to have, and in some cases, none at all. We knew that we could help. Leaders and teams needed support with tapping into their potential to create a more positive experience through developing their awareness, skills and knowledge on how to choose and how to influence in a number of areas like change, attitudes, thinking, comfort zones, values and actions.
Our first workshop was in a local college with six participants (that included family/friends). Our second workshop was in a rented fire station with a team of eight from a local restaurant. Our third workshop was in a chapel of a senior citizen facility with a team of 16 nurses. Before we knew it, we were facilitating to teams and groups of up to nearly a hundred, in locations ranging from community centres and factory workshops to boardrooms and university lecture halls, in Canada, the United States, and all the way to Copenhagen, Denmark!
Throughout our time, with thorough research, development and great consideration, we have also increased our product and service offerings, never losing sight of our top priority of helping leaders and teams choose, influence, and thus create, more of the positive.
In more common language that’s used today, and perhaps in simpler words, everything we do is about the psychological health and safety of workplaces and helping teams and leaders to work together better.
Whether you’re prioritizing continuous improvement initiatives with interpersonal relations, team effectiveness, and/or leadership development, or in a critical situation with a dysfunctional team, culture and/or organizational health, Hone’s services can exceed your expectations.
Members of the Hone team have over 20 years of experience working with diverse teams from organizations of all sizes and industries in Canada, the United States and Internationally.
