Our 8 fundamental beliefs have led to incredible results.

Life and work aren’t meant to be a struggle. With the right tools and attitude, everyone can achieve greater results with greater ease.

What people focus on grows (both the bad things and the good).

Most people want to be the best they can; some just haven’t figured out how.

The most valuable knowledge is self-knowledge.

Improved results are the only measure of a successful learning process.

Inside each individual, team and organization is an even better one trying to get out.

When people come together with the skills and desire, the whole really can be greater than the sum of its parts.

People improve what is measured.

Leaders empowering leaders.

Why we do what we do!

Andra Sheffer, Executive Director The Bell Fund

What a great choice it was to work with K&Co. and Nicole Bendaly on our Human Resources challenges!  Not only did she provide invaluable insights and solutions to our unique issues, but she minimized the stress that HR reviews can entail and ensured that both staff and Board members could rely with confidence on her recommendations.  It was wonderful to be able to count on her understanding, efficiency and creativity so that we are now able to move forward with a state-of-the-art HR plan!

Director of Human Resources, Notre-Dame Hospital

K&Co’s team development process is so simple and has every tool to facilitate every element of improving team performance.

Professional Practice Lead, Trillium Health Partners

From the initial planning stages to the follow-up after our workshop, Nicole Bendaly’s expertise, and knowledge were clearly evident.  The considerable time she took to understand our team’s unique needs and situation resulted in our team feeling very valued and “understood” and made the day much more meaningful.  The workshop content and process also reflected a high level of insight into the kind of direction and learning our team would benefit from most.  Throughout the day, she demonstrated excellent facilitation skills, high adaptability and keen awareness of the group dynamics and individual personalities.  Most importantly, following this workshop, our team was able to put into action the team’s goals. This is largely due to Nicole’s detailed summary outlining recommendations for the team’s next steps. I am highly impressed by Nicole’s ability to be in tune with where our team was at, to meet us where we were so that she could lead us to the place where we wanted to be!
