Building Effective Teams

Tom has consulted on major projects for countless organizations in several countries. His own journey catapulted through rapid growth, and he is has long been considered a lightning rod of influence and disruptive innovation through the creation of a strong team.
“Tom always has a bigger plan. He was recognized as coach of the year in the province, and then went on to coach the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, then became the Athletic Director at U of S, and eventually the Riders noticed him. He was an administrative team member when I was a player. He was always very outgoing and engaging to me as a player, which was nice because the front office to the locker room isn’t always that way on every team. I think that was part of the essence of the Riders back then.”Greg Fieger
