About Our Leadership Development Sessions:

I had a fantastic experience with the Strategic Leadership program. Tammy and Dave did a phenomenal job of creating an environment that isn’t just ideal for learning, but also helps you to look at ideas in many different contexts, engaging both the left and right-side of your brain. The program is invaluable to anyone hoping to further develop their leadership or organizational skills. Dylan Wilks, Creative Director & Co-Founder, TEDxVictoria

Calliope’s sessions with Schneider Electric were transformational. Tammy & Dave gave us a great foundation of concepts & tools that helped us take our leadership to the next level. We were a strong leadership team before the session. After the session, we realized that we had become even stronger. I’ve never learned more about myself and my peers in one day than I did with the Calliope session on MBTI. It was a paradigm shift that I will never forget. Dan Wall, Schneider Electric

The leadership training provided by Calliope Learning is practical and thought provoking for both new managers and more seasoned pros. Tammy and Dave provide an insightful, active and fun workshop filled with “a-ha” moments. Our managers can’t stop talking about the training and they really appreciated the one-on-one coaching sessions as follow up. Calliope Learning has my strongest personal recommendation. Judy Hamza – Director, Human Resources & Administration,

I approached this course with caution. I was really interested in the material, but I’ve had my share of training activities that were more about feeling uncomfortable than they were about learning. By the end of the first day it was clear that my concerns were unnecessary. Dave and Tammy demonstrate great respect for their participants and clearly understand the value of the time being invested. By the second session I had gone from cautious to enthusiastic.

About Our Coaching

Dave was my professional coach for almost a year. The insights, business and personal principles that he helped me apply to challenging situations at work yielded benefits almost immediately. He was supportive, but constantly challenged me not to slip into bad or unproductive habits and to ‘raise my game’. Finally, I believe that working with Dave helped me clarify my own professional goals, and work to achieve them — our coaching relationship only came to an end when I pursued a promotion and transfer to manage a remote office! In both formal training as well as one-on-one coaching, I would not hesitate to recommend Calliope Learning’s professional development services. Shaun Hope, Schneider Electric

Some of my best personal growth has come from working with Tammy Dewar and Calliope Learning. Tammy has a way to peel back the layers of an issue with a timely, well thought out question. Her coaching techniques make me look at issues differently and she challenges me to stretch myself and my leadership style. Tammy understands the business world and can help make sense of it when the pressure is on and everyone wants a piece of you. Her academic background and knowledge of the issues helps create an approach that produces buy-in through the development of a personal learning plan against which progress is measured. John D. Douglas MBA, Vice President, Public Affairs – Canwest Global Communications Corp.

About our Strategic Facilitation

I’d like to thank you for an extraordinary day. I’ve never really loved large meetings and I’ve seldom seen a facilitator do more than manage the schedule for the day but what you provided was remarkably valuable and fun. The end results are terrific and we couldn’t be more happy. Dan Gunn, Executive Director, VIATeC

An amazing day all around. Not only did we hit all our desired outcomes, we had a blast doing it. Tammy and Dave are excellent facilitators – they give clear instructions, provide effective supports, and demonstrate a high level of competence and congeniality throughout. I would recommend this team without reservation. Richard Stern, Member of the Board, Together Against Poverty Society
