Corporate Culture Project

We worked with the D-Wave Senior Leadership team to build a high performing team, by encouraging straight talk, addressing conflict constructively, and establishing clarity of direction for each division thereby building alignment through strategic planning and goal setting.  We have also provided one on one coaching, using the Leadership 360 process as a basis for exploration of strengths and areas of focus with members of the team.

Currently we are running six month leadership program with a cohort group of leaders which combines theory, application, team development, reflection an ongoing Action Research project whereby the team will present their findings and recommendations to the Senior team upon completion.


Erica is one of the most competent leadership development/strategy consultants I have ever worked with. My leadership team trusts her and enjoys working with her. We have seen solid progress as a direct result of her work. I highly recommend her.

Vern Brownell, CEO at D-Wave Systems Inc.

My company asked Erica to help us to strengthen our leadership team. Erica was very mindful of the differing personalities and styles and has done a great job in facilitating our team building work. I was so impressed with Erica’s effectiveness that I reached out to her outside of the team building work for some personal coaching and I have found her advice and work with me to be immediately impactful and helpful.”
