Our Team

Let’s face it, there are places to work, and then there are meaningful work places.

1-degree is a dynamic team of successful executives, entrepreneurs, coaches, facilitators and “guides on the side” based in Toronto, Canada. We have come together as a collective because we are all passionate about helping leaders create and sustain visionary and values-driven cultures.

We start with where you are at and believe small shifts can have a huge impact. We look at your business through the lenses of culture, purpose, strategy, leadership, execution and performance systems and together we decide what focus would give you the most return.

What is your 1-degree shift? If you knew how to make change, would you be willing?
