COACHING

Need an ear to bounce your challenges and opportunities off of, or someone to ask you the tough questions? Jeff works with a limited number of individuals looking for support in addressing their team or organizational dynamics, sorting through interpersonal or inter-departmental conflicts or addressing issues of health, mental wellness and overall job performance.

SPEAKING

Whether your audience is twenty or two hundred, Jeff will captivate and engage them with stories of change from his own life, and the lives of the people that he’s worked closely with over his career. 

Jeff leaves every audience with powerful tools and strategies to take meaningful action in their own lives, starting now.

FACILITATION

Jeff’s ability to build custom workshops and trainings on a range of topics (from communication and conflict resolution to leadership practices and strategy) is matched only by his ability to provide “mindful, wise and compassionate” facilitation for groups large and small.   

"I recommend Jeff without hesitation for any session that requires a mindful, wise, and compassionate facilitator to inspire true change in the group. "

Testimonials

What people like you are saying about working with Jeff.

"He’s masterful at taking well researched models and best practices and turning them into easily integrated ideas that create change. He uses simple useful tools and the power of intention. He’s a transformational leader and a visionary. I would highly recommend Jeff’s work to anyone."
Candace Windisch
Director of Community Services, Enviros
Jeff is fucking amazing and smarter than the average Canuck. Plus, he eats weird food and drives a truck that runs on grease. Kind of a weird dude, actually.
Keith Russell
Professor and Chair, Western Washington University
I've worked closely with Jeff Couillard for a number of years, and he understands change - organizational, professional and personal change. He’s not a therapist nor does he pretend to be. What he is speaks to his ability to stay on the ”bleeding edge” of what works to promote change. He has muddy boots from his field work in substance use disorder treatment with youth and their parents, and a leader’s perspective from implementing change through modifying or expanding systems that work, while training staff in the ways and means to make the change real. And he has or will gather the data to back up his consulting claims.
Lee Gillis, PhD
Professor of Psychology and Licensed Psychologist
Jeff has a deep understanding about how teams work best together. As a leader, he has a vision for tending to the structure of teams in ways that bring out the strengths of each member, while simultaneously focusing everyone on shared goals. He also knows that sustainable and effective teams must have more than tasks, deadlines, and to-do lists. Accordingly, he always aspires to nurture a team-centered culture that makes attaining the collective vision an enriching and meaningful experience.
Liam Law
Mental Health Clinician, Island Health Authority
As an advisor and coach, Jeff is a master when it comes to compassionate communication and navigating tough situations. I have absolutely loved collaborating with him, and consider him a friend and teacher. His ability to draw from and apply various models, approaches, and tools he has learned over his career is quite impressive & impactful.

Vince Fowler

I have worked with Jeff Couillard in various capacities over nearly a decade. Jeff has a very unique and inspiring style, which I have seen produce phenomenal results over the years with respect to change management and conflict resolution. He is exceptionally knowledgeable without ego getting in the way, and facilitates in an empowering, positive style. He has an unassuming style, yet delivers world class facilitation. I would have no hesitation recommending Jeff to collaborate with and empower your team!

Every consulting project is different, because the needs and values of every organization is different.

One common theme is the need to demonstrate outcomes, whether in the form of a “return on investment” in business, or a “social return on investment” in the non-profit sector.

Jeff specializes in helping organizations design, build and implement cutting edge “routine outcome monitoring” and “utilization focused evaluation” systems.
