You love to learn. You’re insatiably curious and are constantly seeking challenge and novelty in your own life. You are generous in sharing what you’re learning and experiencing with others.
You’re a people person. You have a knack for listening with warmth and without judgement. You make people feel at ease and open up.
You’re a motivator and change agent. Personal reflection comes naturally to you, and you’re skilled at helping others see the insights you’ve identified. You have strategies to spark a person’s intrinsic motivation to take action. You can help people identify their strengths and build on them to come up with solutions to their own challenges and to build their problem-solving muscles.
You’re brave and bold, without taking over a room. You know when to speak up and when to step back. You’re not afraid to cold call or door knock to make things happen. You know how to change your message and story for the audience, and are perceptive of body language and tone.
You’re a big picture thinker with the ability to zoom in and zoom out. You’re good at holding a bigger purpose in the back of your mind, while juggling on the day-to-day activities that help us get there. Plus, you don’t work in isolation. You’re also a critical part of a hard-working, fast-paced team, and your ideas help strengthen the whole team’s practice and impact.
You are motivated by great work and like to push the envelope. You’re not satisfied with ‘just getting the job done.’ For you, excellence really matters. You put your all into things, and really take pride in the things you do and make.
You are comfortable with emergence, change, and living life in grey areas. You don’t rely on others to provide structure for your work because you’re able to build the working conditions you need for yourself. You like working in a fluid environment where things change quickly, and are energized by a shifting day-to-day.
You know something about learning and change processes. You might have experience with life or executive coaching, counselling, peer support, or reflective practice. You have frameworks or strategies for helping people through anxieties, fears, and other obstacles getting in the way of change.

A big part of our work is testing directly with ‘real’ users — people with disabilities, their families, staff, and volunteers. We’ve been live prototyping for two years with about 200 users. Over that period we’ve designed several versions of a website, a mobile app and lots of printed materials.
