Dr. Ronnie Kurchner-Hawkins, Executive Coach
Ronnie Kurchner-Hawkins is passionate about helping people reach their full potential. She is a seasoned business professional, Executive Coach and consultant focused on learning and organizational development. She brings knowledge, intelligence, and skill to the development of actionable solutions and strategies, which combined with a sense of humor, ensure results.
Ronnie understands the challenges of leadership. She has used her broad-based knowledge of how to apply best practices in learning, organizational development and business to provide support to individuals and organizations through change, including managing transitions, rapid growth, reorganization, downsizing, strategic redirection, mergers, acquisition, and culture change. Over 25 years of experience building and leading high-performance consulting teams to facilitate solving problems in business and industry and build practical high-quality solutions that bring bottom-line results and meet business objectives.
My work with leaders from the executive suite to the front lines reflects my lifelong interest in helping people reach their full potential. I understand the challenges of leadership and feel strongly that coaching begins with understanding my clients’ strengths and identifying opportunities for development. I collaborate with my clients to build a development plan based on information gathered from many sources. This data-based approach helps us to target opportunities and make decisions about how to most productively work together. It also can help executives to understand the impact their behavior and communication have on others. My goal is to help senior leaders remove roadblocks to achieving their personal and professional goals.
I am someone who believes that “fun” and work are not mutually exclusive. Confronting challenges and continually learning and growing are keys to success. I find that sometimes the best way to open ourselves to change is to “not take ourselves so seriously” – even though the work we do is very serious and important. Without a sense of humor, we can lose sight of the opportunities in front of us.

Jennifer Gervès-Keen, MA, PCC, Master Corporate Executive Coach (MCEC)
Jennifer helps organizations solve problems, mostly to do with their people. She enjoys a challenge and supports individuals who are figuring out where they want to go – particularly as leaders – and ensure they get there. She is passionate about moving organizations and people forward in effective, business-friendly ways, and she loves to use science (specifically neuroscience but other scientific research and data as well) to further understand behaviours and reactions.
Jennifer is an award-winning coach, with a focus on offering exceptional learning & development experiences within organizations. She also creates successful performance management programs for some clients and assists others with business strategy. In essence Jennifer works in partnership with her clients to figure out the best, most cost effective and sustainable ways of moving their people and their businesses forward, whether it’s through building or changing culture, training and development, coaching, or creating more efficient people processes. She works with her clients on a long-term basis, and is committed to continually learning in order to bring thought leadership and innovative solutions to her clients and followers.
Jennifer has a somewhat different ‘worldview’ given that she has lived and worked in many different cultures. She has the ability to almost immediately understand and adapt to any organizational culture and uses that to integrate herself quickly into the environment she is working in.
She has done a lot of work in moving disengaged groups forward through honest facilitation and team alignment; essentially deconstructing to reconstruct. Diverse teams, companies both large and small, Jennifer has a strong understanding of the challenges faced by managers and leaders within both operational and service environments.
Her client list includes organizations across North America as well as Europe and she has also worked in the Middle East. From smaller and successful organizations such as Mobify and Landyachtz to larger businesses such as Deloitte Canada and the CPA, Jennifer has worked with all levels of government, and most areas of the private sector including engineering, manufacturing, finance, professional services and high tech as well as some non-profit organizations.
