I really appreciated his challenge that we can all be a hero in our own way. Kevin spoke about mental illness issues that I think all of us face at some point in our lives. This was impactful as I think as a society, we tend to shelve these discussions due to fear and unworthiness.”

Employees today are at a great risk of burnout while working remotely. Learning how to set and maintain personal boundaries is still a new skill for many to develop that can leave managers and supervisors struggling to understand why people have a hard time saying “no”, while running the risk of losing team members who simply do not have the tools or strategies in place to take control.

In this program, Kevin takes you through strategies to help identify where poor time management skills can be hindering self-care practices, what psychological barriers can be avoided to help initiate open conversations amongst managers and supervisors, as well as what to do to help further avoid, and if necessary, recover from burnout.

Participants will take part in highly interactive brainstorming sessions, identifying problematic areas, working together to create solutions, all while helping organizations gain further insights to understand where their employees are struggling and need help the most, and discover tools to manage these aspects proactively.


  • How to set and maintain personal boundaries
  • How to separate work life from professional life
  • How to communicate personal/professional boundaries while maintaining personal/professional responsibilities
  • How to avoid and recover from burnout


This program is ideal for leaders and people managers who support high performing teams who are at risk of burnout, teams facing increased workloads due to organizational restructuring, rapidly changing demands of remote work, and organizations who are seeking a deeper understanding of employee’s needs to help support wellness initiatives.



Organizations who adapt quickly, recognize that in order to continue to grow in a virtual environment, teams must revisit and maintain key success strategies that fueled pre-pandemic growth, and continue expanding ideas that foster collaboration in networking, sales, and support to strengthen team cohesion and drive results.

In this program, Kevin takes you through the lessons that he and his team learned from the 2012 season where Sledge Team Canada won every game, except the Gold medal game in the World Championships, to then rebound the following year and claim Gold in the 2013 World Championships.

Participants will engage in exercises including forward focused reflection, brainstorm opportunities to retain and enhance their customer relationships, as well as leverage their internal and external network to stay connected, be more effective and resilient in navigating a virtual world.

This program is ideal for teams facing ongoing organizational challenges and who are looking to grow and reignite their employee’s passion towards a focused common vision.


  • How to reconnect with company values and reignite purpose and meaning in team performance
  • How to embrace growing an organizational culture where innovative thinking is non-negotiable
  • How to foster a team where customer centric communication and collaboration is strengthened through transparency and vulnerability


This program is ideal for leaders who are looking for strategies to maintain a resilient mindset while supporting high performing teams, as well as people managers who are looking to deepen their connection to employees in the workplace (and remote work environments) and continue to foster engagement while building a culture of connection and collaboration.
