John Robertson has an invaluable gift.  Having learned from John and worked with him through crisis training and program development is refreshing.  John’s ability to ask seemingly simple questions to get you or an organization not just to make a decision, but challenge and question where you or your organization needs to be and developing your plan and program to meet the end goal as opposed to just ‘doing the next thing’ makes his consulting, speaking and advice beyond the band aid approach to genuine assistance in doing the right thing for you.

John Robertson’s expertise in Change Management helped me enormously when I became principal. John is skilful, intuitive and very well qualified. John’s quiet support and probing questions helped me pick my path as a leader and principal. Alison G.

I met John through Canadian Police College. Later, at my police service, I was tasked with engaging with racialized groups. Relations between police and community were significantly fractured and impacting persons on both sides of the situation, taking a toll on the team. John was requested because of his unique approaches, enabling team members to identify and name their experiences. He provided strategies for improving personal and group performance, working together and navigate conflict going forward. This was a turning point for the team, fulfilling objectives, minimizing negative impact, but as importantly appreciating the magnitude & importance of the group and individual contributions.
