Create high-performing workplaces – In your organization

Are you seeking leadership development and workplace communication tools for your people?

Then look no further! Merge’s professional practice is focused entirely on turning managers into leaders; on helping great people become exceptional leaders by turning people power into real and tangible results. Merge’s insights come from first-hand experience. As a leader at one of Canada’s premier oil and gas companies for over fourteen years, and a Board leader at a Credit Union for three years, she offers a unique blend of realism and humor that resonates deeply with people in organizations. Merge “gets it” – she’s walked the walk, so she can talk the talk! Because she’s been there, Merge is able to give people specific and practical tools to help them achieve leadership and communication success.

Merge knows that the best way to develop skills in your leaders is to craft a training program that is uniquely designed to meet the needs of your organization and your people.  In any training design, there are many elements to choose from, and Merge will work closely with you to determine your specific needs and establish objectives that are relevant and meaningful to you.  Your final outcome could be a one-time training event or a series of graduated learning programs; it could involve online or distance-learning modules; it could contain audio or video components, it could incorporate the use of social media or "virtual study groups"; it could even include peer support or one-on-one mentoring.  Whatever it is, it will be uniquely "you", and Merge will expertly craft and deliver what you need to turn your managers into leaders and your people power into results.

For real-life examples of how Merge has added significant value to her clients, read our Training case studies and our Mentoring case study.

Whether it is live training, virtual distance learning, or curriculum development, Merge’s programs are research-based and content-rich – she takes proven academic research, makes it relevant to your organization and your challenges, combines it with time-tested strategies and then delivers the tools, solutions and mindsets your managers need for long-term leadership success. Her contagious enthusiasm turns even the most passive listeners into participants! If your people are tired of “fluff”, then Merge represents the solid alternative: enduring and compelling content and tools that actually work, delivered in an engaging style, tempered with humor and realism.

Are you planning a team building event?

If you’re a leader in an organization, then you know that motivating people is an ongoing process. You know that one of the best ways to re-energize a team is to get them away and out of the office, even for a short time, from the challenges and pressures of the day-to-day. A team that learns and laughs together is well on its way to being a high-performing team, and Merge can help you create the perfect experience! She’ll work with you to identify what specific skills your people could benefit from, and then design and deliver a fun, exciting, and perfectly customized program to fit your people, your organization’s culture, and your needs. You and your employees will return to work exhilarated, with a renewed passion for leadership and action, and a toolkit full of unbelievably useful ideas that will make an immediate impact on your leadership and productivity effectiveness.

For a first-hand look at what Merge can help you accomplish through your people, read through our Facilitation case studies.

Do you have a people-related project that you haven't been able to invest time and resources in?

Well, you won't be the first person to be short of staff and/or time to make important things happen!  The good news is that … yup, Merge can probably help!

Perhaps you're looking for specific insights and recommendations on how to engage your workforce; or possibly you'd benefit from an outside knowledgeable perspective on why your employees are complaining about poor communication in the annual employee survey; maybe you'd like to refine your recruitment strategy to better fit today's demographics; or it could be that you just want a catalyst to spur your team at your annual strategic planning session.  In each of these situations (and more), Merge can give you an expert professional understanding and evaluation from an external point of view.  Quite frankly, if it's related to developing your leaders or capitalizing on the human potential of your people, Merge's broad experience with over 250 different clients in a wide variety of industries means that she can probably add value to your efforts.

Contact us to set up a time to talk with Merge about your specific situation and needs.  In a 30-minute telephone call, Merge will let you know whether (and how) she can add value to what you have in mind.  Occasionally, Merge won't have what you need to get the job done, and when that happens, she'll tell you straight up!  But even then, she won't leave you without doing her best to recommend alternate resources to help you achieve your goals.

If you’re still not sure whether Merge can help with your project, perhaps a read-through some of our Case studies will be helpful.  Look specifically at the ones under Facilitation and Consulting.
