We Provide Expertise in:

Kor Capabilities Consulting specializes in helping organizations manage the human side of change that comes with restructuring, downsizing, mergers and acquisitions.

Research shows that most change efforts fail or do not completely achieve their desired objectives for one reason: strong employee resistance. Many companies will invest considerable time and money creating a sound business strategy, upgrading their technology or modifying their work processes, but they invest very little time understanding how these changes will affect their employees. The resultant strong employee resistance can lead to workplace conflict, slow-downs, poor customer service, and loss of productivity and profits.

We can help organizations create and implement a change management plan that will ensure employee engagement and ultimately success by applying proven change principles and processes.

If you are experiencing or about to experience organizational change, here's the support we can provide.

We will help you:

  • Plan and execute a change plan that is timely and appropriate for your work environment.
  • Create a communications framework that will serve as a guide for all internal messages to staff.
  • Meet with staff to help them work through the implications of change and what it means to them personally.
  • Develop short and long term action plans that will move the change effort forward.
  • Build on small successes that promote the proposed changes and create a clear vision for the future.

What Makes Us Different

  • We have direct experience assisting organizations work through large-scale systemic change.
  • We understand the complexity and organizational dynamics that exist when changes are being planned and implemented.
  • We have access to many resources, tools and processes that can facilitate the successful execution of the planned changes.

If you are an organization committed to employee development and looking for training programs that enhance people's skills and knowledge, Kor Capabilities Consulting can help.

Many workplace studies show that organizations that invest in their employees' professional development consistently outperform organizations that don't.  Achieving overall employee satisfaction, attraction and retention of high performers, and corporate citizenship reinforces this reality. This of course has a direct effect on productivity and long term profitability.

We design and deliver employee and leadership training programs in topic areas such as:

  • Change Management
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Social Styles
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Team Dynamics

What Makes Us Different

Design Phase

  • We design all our training programs with the principles of adult learning in mind. That means we believe participants come with an extensive knowledge and experience base and we draw on that for the design and delivery of our workshops. This makes the material topical and relevant, which enriches the learning experience for all participants.
  • We can tailor our existing program offerings or completely customize the training material to address specific learning needs.
  • Our workshops are primarily designed to be experiential which increases interest, participation, knowledge retention, and on the job application.

Delivery Phase

  • The delivery of workshop material is flexible and takes into account different learning styles as well as the practical reality of work schedules.
  • Programs can be delivered in a traditional classroom setting, through self-paced workbooks, a combination of both, or in a modular format that can be delivered over a period of time.

Follow Up Phase

  • We ensure complete customer satisfaction immediately following the delivery of the material through feedback forms and other communication vehicles.
  • We also continue to make ourselves available to employees who need additional support or information.


Kor Capabilities Consulting provides leadership coaching for managers at all levels of the organization. If you are interested in taking your leadership and management skills to the next level or simply refining your skills, we can help.

Many of the greatest leaders have acknowledged they owe their success to the help and attention of mentors and coaches throughout their developing careers.
Leaders play a critical role in developing a strong corporate culture, creating a vision, influencing strategic direction, and managing employee performance. Ultimately, this significantly affects morale, employee satisfaction levels, retention and productivity.

What Makes Us Different

  • We customize every coaching experience to the needs of each leader. We don't simply apply one standard coaching approach. We start with a meeting with leaders, determine their coaching objectives and design a plan that works in the best interest of the client's development.
  • We have extensive coaching experience with all levels of Corporate Management, including executive leaders.
  • We also have access to a broad toolkit of competency- based coaching resources when required.
  • We provide open, honest, constructive feedback and offer concrete suggestions that can be implemented immediately. After each meeting, the client has at least one action item to work on. Follow up meetings help reinforce the learning and development of new behaviors.

Investing in leadership development that ensures all managers have the core competencies to do their jobs is a must in today's knowledge-based economy. The return on your investment will stretch far beyond the more immediate results you will observe.

Put an end to frustrating meetings that are devoid of process, lack clear objectives, and have no tangible outcomes.

Kor Capabilities Consulting has the facilitation expertise to help clients achieve their meeting objectives - every time. If you are running a strategic planning session, coordinating an offsite meeting or a corporate retreat, we can help you every step of the way.

We will work with you to:

  • Clarify your meeting/event objectives
  • Establish clear outcomes
  • Ensure all stakeholders and decision makers are invited
  • Design meeting processes and activities to meet each of your objectives
  • Facilitate to ensure the meeting stays on track and that everyone has an opportunity to participate
  • Document the meeting notes so that key discussions and action plans are captured
  • Follow up after the meeting or event to ensure that everything went according to plan

What Makes Us Different

  • We offer extensive facilitation experience with small and large group sizes dealing with a variety of topics and subject matter.
  • Our processes allow all participants to have an equal voice and to be actively engaged throughout the meeting.
  • We have the experience to manage diverse opinions, extract key concepts, and synthesize them in a manner that allows the meeting to progress smoothly and efficiently.
  • We challenge thinking in a constructive manner that allows the best possible ideas to surface.

Kor Capabilities Consulting offers creative teambuilding activities that can help your organization build high performance teams. Whether you have specific objectives for improving team effectiveness, motivating and energizing your staff, or simply want to have fun, we have the experience, ideas and activities that will meet your needs.

High performance teams emerge from having shared goals and accountabilities, a deep commitment to the work being performed, and a high level of trust in each other's skills and abilities. High performance teams also know how to have fun and celebrate successes when key milestones are met and that creates strong team cohesion and motivation.

Improving Team Effectiveness

Like any sound structure, the foundational pieces need to be firmly established before anything of great substance can be created. From an organizational design perspective, it is important to objectively assess your team's strengths and potential gaps before planning corrective courses of action. Here's where we come in.

We will help you:

  • Understand the stages of team dynamics, assess the stage your team is in, and develop actions that will further its development.
  • Clarify team goals and accountabilities.
  • Define roles and responsibilities.
  • Develop team norms and principles that will guide people's behaviors throughout the team's progress.

Team Building Activities

Every team at some point needs time to unwind, celebrate successes and just shift gears for a while and have some fun.

  • We have access to a variety of icebreakers, energizers, and endings for team meetings, off-sites and corporate retreats that will appeal to everyone.
  • We can also customize exercises that follow a meeting theme or reinforce specific learning objectives.
  • We can facilitate the exercises or provide you with the material for your internal staff to deliver.

What Makes Us Different

  • We have extensive experience working with small and large size teams and have had great success in helping them develop into high performing teams.
  • We understand the dynamics of teams and can apply the concepts to real life situations.
  • We do the research and provide you with current tools, resources and practices that will address your team needs.
