Kirk Fox has been supporting Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart through a significant part of our Corporate Culture Journey in the past two years. Kirk was brought on to deliver his personally designed and delivered coaching excellence program because it has such an amazing tie in to our Leadership Development roadmap. The program has a great balance of theory, practical application and actual practice in coaching that the participants walked away with a much better understanding of how to coach and how they can be even more effective in their leadership role.
Thanks Kirk for delivering a great program!”
