Former partner, Jonathan Baynes is back in BC and ready to lead change projects with Hi Q Training.
Leading change is a science an an art, but mostly an art. The ADKAR framework for change developed by the Prosci organization, provides a useful launching pad for a more detailed discussion about the complexities of change. Instead of a content heavy approach, Jonathan uses his years of good, bad and challenging experiences to explore the challenges individuals in the group are facing. The session will be highly engaging with a focus on the change you are involved in. We will together explore the dynamics involved and the complexities and hopefully arrive at practical and meaningful ways to navigate our worlds together.

“Jonathan Baynes was highly conscientious in assessing our communities values and sought to find truly sustainable opportunities between the economic, social and environmental challenges, with requirements set out by the community and Aboriginal Affairs Canada.
His vision for growth and transparency was underpinned with a depth of knowledge and experience of discrimination and marginalization within the context of indigenous autonomy. Successfully managed a major corporate restructuring, which allowed the band to assume ownership and management of a $320 million dollar project.” Chief Chad Eneas, Penticton Indian Band, Okanagan Nation
