Frequently Asked Questions

What is ”Donuts & Conversations”? 
Sign-up for a one-hour time slot on Nov. 8 or 9 for a facilitated conversation with your team. We can facilitate a team of up to ten people at either the business’s location or a Town of Canmore meeting room. A facilitator will bring Frankie D’s Donuts for your team to enjoy while they are led through a facilitated conversation. The facilitation will include creating a brave space for your team to connect, and guiding participants through three key questions to help create a space to develop your team’s resilience.

This is an opportunity to hold space for an intentional check-in with your team to recognize the vast experiences that each of your employees comes with as an individual, and to honour that these experiences have an impact on your team’s productivity, resiliency, and wellbeing. As teams have returned to work post-pandemic restrictions, or worked throughout, they often have experienced a plethora of emotions, that reconnection with team members is vitally important and helps them feel valued.
What is resilience team coaching?
The COVID-19 pandemic revealed the necessity of resilient teams. Growing team resilience helps every aspect of the business, especially when dealing with difficult challenges such as coming through the past couple of years. Resilience requires a level of self-awareness and empathy that may not come naturally to all team members. Resilient teams require leaders who are willing to assess the state of their teams and offer strategies that will help all members to break down barriers and build foundations of trust, transparency, and self-awareness. Resilient teams are transparent about their struggles and lean into the group's responsibility for facing challenges and finding solutions.
