Reach Capabilities has a proven track record helping companies and individuals reach their greater potential. Below are just some of the clients we have worked with.
“There are three key benefits from Reach Capabilities workshops: individual and team development, improved performance, and an amazing team experience. The Kolbe workshop gave my team a snapshot of how to effectively communicate with each other and our internal clients. It helped everyone know themselves better and through the program, we developed new ways to leverage our individual strengths to become even more efficient and successful. It has provided us with a framework that is applicable and sustainable. Getting to do that while seeing the team laughing and personally engaged is a true win for them and the organization.”
– Chris Stamper, Senior Vice President, TD Bank Group
“A crucial aspect to success in any business is developing a great team to support your strategic initiatives. By knowing my strengths, I know where to focus my time. By knowing the strengths of my team, I know how to position them to do their best work. Reach Capabilities helped me to know myself and my team better. From fresh CPA’s to long service team members, their support and team work makes a difference.”
– Feaz Rahim, CFO, McCarthy Tétrault LLP
“We’ve used the Kolbe framework for over 3 years now to provide insights on how we, as individuals and as a team, approach challenges and how we can best leverage our collective strengths to deliver greater value to our business partners. In understanding natural inclinations to action, my team’s work style has evolved to one of greater collaboration, higher quality of work, and faster turn-around time of deliverables. Recognizing and celebrating our diversity in approaches to work has led to a more enjoyable and productive work environment.”
– Neil Balbirnie, Vice President, Royal Bank of Canada
“Relationships are the most important thing – period. The best way to develop a great relationship is to get to know someone’s abilities and strengths. Kolbe profiles quickly tell me so much about a person and how to connect with them, whether they are a client, team member, or family. Reach Capabilities is our go-to partner for using Kolbe (and other profiles) to build strong, deep relationships to enhance our lives and grow our business.”
– Robert Lewis, Partner, CCV Insurance & Financial Services Inc.
“The Kolbe session was one of the best growth experiences we’ve had as a group.”
– George Carras, President, RealNet Canada Inc.
“Having my leadership team go through the Kolbe assessment allowed us to vault over an invisible wall we had been facing. I truly believe the effectiveness of our team will be improved many times over as a result. Your guidance and insights were perfect.”
– Stefan Marchand, Vice President, Bank of Montreal
“We had Kolbe profiles done for our whole team. Now, whenever we need to hire someone new, we use the Kolbe RightFit assessment to identify the people who best match both the job opening and the team. Knowing how someone will act in a role is fantastically powerful during the hiring process. The Kolbe tools have allowed us to handpick an A team of performers who know how to work well with each other.”
– Rob Sibthorpe, President, lovepac
“Reach delivered some critical pieces in a fun and informative fashion while at the same time reinforcing fundamental concepts that will help us find our way along both our career and life paths. We walked out feeling more confident.”
– Michael Chumakov, Senior Regional Manager, TD Wealth Financial Planning
“As a non-profit arts organization with a small staff of five, Inside Out received invaluable support and expertise from Reach Capabilities. They helped us interpret the strengths of our current employees and identified areas to focus on when recruiting new staff members to ensure we build the strongest team possible. The results of our Kolbe testing were eye-opening and really helped our staff understand their own creative abilities and improve how they work with each other. Overall, it has improved the entire team’s effectiveness and productivity.”
– Scott Ferguson, Executive Director, Inside Out
“Reach one-to-one coaching challenged me to discover my strengths and talents, motivated me to focus on my leadership skills, and helped push me to a new level of performance. It helped me achieve my goals. I feel more empowered and confident in ME!”
