Trusted by innovative businesses around the world to transform the workplace

Your people are brilliant. Stacked with potential.
But something is missing.

Whether it’s sales, marketing, design, finance, or any other function in your organization, teams are constantly dealing with challenges. From lack of resources to restructuring, re-imagining company culture, creating new revenue streams, and everything in between.

Leaders stuck in the past are struggling. High performers lacking guidance are struggling as well. To achieve dramatic business results, close the talent gap, & build a culture that attracts & retains the best people for you, know this:

The path forward must be lined with empathy, belonging, and trust— for yourself, your teams, and your customers.

I can’t say enough about the job Joanna did in people coaching & development. She made a great impact in developing the team’s skills & careers, including inventing new programs that were later adopted elsewhere in our organization. I highly recommend her to any organization seeking to improve their leadership & teamwork.

Our story
Joanna Kirke

Our clients get results. Are you next?

"I first met Joanna when she was a Strategic HR Business Partner at TD and I had the opportunity to get reacquainted with her as an outstanding facilitator with her company, Kirke Leadership. She facilitated a game-changing Leading Change experience with my team at SunLife where they had the opportunity to practice leading change with human-centred approaches and best practice tools that foster more effective planning and implementation. Joanna is an empathetic and intuitive facilitator and coach who was able to pivot and draw out participants in a manner that enriched the learning experience. I’d highly recommend Joanna for any leadership training or coaching."

Susanna Rothfuchs Hunter, CHRE

HR Executive, SunLife

“Joanna, you led the most fulfilling and practical leadership program I’ve participated in. Your passion, expertise, and preparation made the mid-transition to digital seamless. Thank you for the tools, principles, and values you embody and share with the entire Managing Director cohort. It emanates from your character and goes beyond business leadership. It has given me insights and inspiration in my personal life as well.”

Clement Tsang

Vice President, Global Business Payments at Scotiabank

"Joanna led and facilitated a multi-day leadership workshop in which I participated. Her intentional creation of a safe and supportive space was very effective due to her authentic and genuine communication. I found her mindful intervention into our discussions and workshop exercises to be a real value-add particularly when it came to reminding participants to own our feelings and thoughts and use 1st person language. Joanna's facilitation and leadership style was every bit as educational and informative as the written material included in the workshop. Overall, a very impactful experience made possible through Joanna's excellent facilitation!"
