Our Team 

I am currently a team of one, but that doesn’t mean I do it alone.  Over the years, I have built my network of professional colleagues. When the ask is too big or the work extends past my areas of expertise, I reach out to my network and partner with the best. While I’m not really a fan of the term “jack-of-all-trades” or maybe I should say “jill-of-all-trades”, I have built up a diverse skill set over the years that includes; consulting, facilitation, process design, instructional design, change management and project management just to name a few. I am a strong believer in building expertise, but I also know that having a diverse set of skills allows me to see things from different perspectives and support my clients in a number of different ways. At the end of the day, I am deeply committed to designing meetings, workshops, processes, structures, resources and experiences that build better people, better teams and better organizations.

A Bit About Me (Jill Langer)

I’m a process professional with more than a decade of experience planning, designing and facilitating training, workshops, and programs to build the skills and capacity of teams and individuals. I’ve consulted and worked for corporate, government and not-for-profit organizations in a variety of roles including; program manager/coordinator, project manager, business analyst, facilitator, and trainer. As a strategic thinker with a futuristic perspective, I have the ability to see the potential in individuals and organizations and to make things happen by turning thoughts and ideas into concrete action.

I am serious about getting results for the people and the organizations I work with, but as an avid learner I am always on the lookout for innovative, creative, and hands-on approaches to teaching people new skills and making things happen. Post-it notes, markers, LEGO® bricks and other creative tools can be found in my toolkit to assist me in designing interactive, engaging, and hands-on experiences.

I’m a graduate of Haskayne School of Business, have a certificate in Adult Learning with a specialization in Workplace Learning, certified in Change Management through Prosci Canada and certified in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method through the Strategic Play Group . I’ve been a member of the Institute for Performance & Learning (formerly the CSTD) and the International Forum of Visual Practitioners (IFVP).

I specialize in facilitation, training, process design, organizational development, change management, systems thinking, instructional design, project management, visual thinking, coaching, and team development.

People often ask me how I learned most of this stuff, as a lot of it you won’t find in traditional educational programs. Here are some of the courses I’ve taken, if you are interested in learning more.
