As consultants, we guide and coach our clients through their change processes at the system level, the department level, the team level and importantly the individual level.

ROE helps clients to tap into unlimited positive human energy to fuel their actions, creating healthy working climates where people flourish and organizations grow and prosper in measurable and practical ways.
Our job is to challenge clients to reframe from traditional problem solving to focusing on their strengths to create innovative and sustainable solutions. As a “learning partner” with our clients, we mentor and coach them to achieve extraordinary results. One aspect we use is to help them to focus on having a non-anxious presence in this turbulent time.
At ROE, we and have extensive expertise in strengths-based approaches to strategic planning, large-scale change, community consultations, positive leadership and employee engagement.
ROE focus is helping clients to embrace positive change management, beginning by changing their mindsets in response to the disruptive paradigm shifts they are experiencing. We do this by bringing different perspectives to the discussion, broadening the understanding as well as continuously challenging people with what is most difficult to do: shift their mental framework and align behaviours with their new perspective.
