My strongest, most credible endorsements come from the people I've worked with.
Morag Ritchie got it from the get-go.
She intuitively understood our team-building needs and suggested a program that led us to some meaningful (and much-needed) conversations between colleagues. Even better, she planted seeds for thought that are still germinating long after our All-Staff event. Only complaint? Our half-day session was much too short (she did warn us!). To really leverage Morag’s team-building expertise, do yourself a favor and book at least an entire day with her. You won’t be disappointed.

“The City of Airdrie worked with Morag for the first time in 2014. Morag brought calm, reasoned thinking to a high-profile community issue.

I would recommend her skill set to any organization working through challenges, both internally and externally.”

“I began working with Morag in 2007 at the Calgary International Airport International Facilities Project. The client, YYC, very much believes in the partnering process. Morag has been involved with the IFP team in both partnering and facilitating roles over the last four years. Partnering with a diverse team made up of client, program manager, designers, and construction managers can prove to be very challenging—to say the least. Along with the use of many excellent tools, such as Insights, Morag has managed to obtain buy-in to the process from every stakeholder involved in the program—no small feat… Read more

Having her strong presence facilitating certain key leadership sessions helped us work through some interesting challenges to a positive outcome. I highly recommend Morag to help teams work through their challenges."

“Morag was my leadership coach during the last two and a half years. I found Morag to be an excellent source of guidance and knowledge for all the leadership challenges I found as I started my leadership career. She is very diligent, thorough, and skilled. She would always help me find the answer by myself in a constructive and positive way. Her attitude is always positive and supportive, and she is very knowledgeable. It did not matter how challenging and conflictive my week had been, I would always feel positive and strong after seeing Morag.”
