What our participants say

“I had the good fortune of meeting Kelly and Darrel at a conference in 2018 and after talking to them I could easily see that what LeaderShift was offering filled a major gap in training that Canadian farmers are usually offered. I started doing a deep dive into my overall management competencies in 2016 and found that production and marketing gurus were everywhere, finance coaching was readily available, but the human resource and leadership help was harder to find.  Particularly where family (farm) business is concerned, Kelly could bring personal experience  and wisdom into the mix.  LeaderShift didn’t just help me professionally, it extended to my marriage and my whole family. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to up their game and be a better person to work with.”
Kent Sereda, Sereda Farms Ltd.

“As it turned out, I took LeaderShift at a good time as I was I was transitioning out of my farm business and into semi retirement. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in becoming more self-aware, managing their anxiety and being a better communicator. Kelly and Darrel are very flexible, and were quick on their feet to adjust to the needs of the group. The experience exceeded my expectations and was worth every penny. Thank you guys.”


Darryl Toews, Alberta

“LeaderShift has been a great help in gaining a better understanding of how my leadership style impacted those around me – my core relationships and my teams – and has helped me to become a more effective leader. The work was challenging, personal and at times uncomfortable. It was sobering to discover my reactive style was stifling constructive conversations. Participating in LeaderShift was a gift and has been life changing for me.”


Ed Dornn, President/CEO, Excel–7 Ltd.

“Participating in LeaderShift had a significant impact on my life.  In fact it was life changing.  Participating in the course work and especially the residency made me realize the potential that I had and gave me the confidence to have conversations in a way that I didn’t know I could.   LeaderShift gave me the confidence to lead our organization to the next level.”


Bonnie Pankratz – President, Axis Inspection

“After all my years in business, and dealing with all the issues of human relations, this course just made sense. On a human level we operate laterally, even though we are leaders in our respective spheres. Recognizing our own limitations and the need for “skillful transparency” as we navigate learning about others experiences and understanding our own, is so important in “Clear Leadership”. I am putting these new tools to full use!”


Roland Thiessen – Managing Partner, Westcap Group

“LeaderShift helped me realize the true price of my unhealthy work habits to myself, my team, my peers and my family. Working closely with my cohort and program coaches helped shine light on a new path forward where I am building the confidence to lead as my true, authentic self, and by doing so, empower the growth and development of those around me. I also appreciated the flexibility of the online learning community format, yet still bringing us together for a challenging and impactful residency.”


Heather Watson – Executive Director, Farm Management Canada

“LeaderShift revealed a whole new side of leadership that has never been touched on in any previous course that I have taken.  I was able to apply the principals immediately and witness the positive effects of clear communication. The leader assessment identified areas where my leadership required improvement and both the LeaderLab and residency were great ways to practice in both an individual and group setting.”


Darcelle Graham – Executive Director
