 “Brilliantly simple and wickedly wise… The Next Institute is the real deal and they do not disappoint.”

Sue Voigt, former VP Leadership
ATB Financial


“Significant organizational change must be driven from the top. In repositioning our 40-year-old organization for the next 40 years, we needed to ensure we had the skills, alignment, and the will to meet the challenge of the future. We had a group of strong individuals, but we were not maximizing our strength as a leadership team.  

Next brought us new dialogue and communications tools; supported the team alignment and restructure; and helped us define the Leadership Actions essential to our success. The outcome has been a more aligned and accountable SLT, a clear line of sight to our preferred future, and most importantly, outstanding results.”

David Labistour, CEO
Mountain Equipment Co-op
