Organizations that focus on learning and development notice direct improvements with employee engagement, efficiency and overall performance. The ROI advantage for investing in your people can provide financial gain and reduce risk in the areas of consistent turnover, avoidable misconduct, inefficient processes and lack of motivation.

At HR Advantage Group, we work with individuals and organizations of all levels, all different sizes and all different areas of industries.

  • Onboarding

Facilitation is a great method that can be applied to many different areas, whether you are looking to train your people, design a strategic roadmap or plan forward, engage your employees on company-wide initiatives, or promote innovation. We partner with you to plan, design and facilitate the discussion to provide an effective outcome for your strategic planning initiatives.

Leadership Development

Leaders are not just born; they are developed. We believe in equipping you and your people with the necessary toolkit to make strategic, impactful decisions, develop a keen understanding of the self and how to adapt to others, lead with authenticity, and empower others to act. We develop programs customized to your organization’s leadership gaps. Whether you are looking to train new managers or boost your senior leadership skillset, we provide a range of solutions tailored towards meeting your leadership goals.

Management Training

Like leaders, good managers are developed and prepared with the necessary tools to lead people and complex projects successfully. In many cases, skilled high potential individuals fail due to improper management training and support. We work with you to develop a tailored program to set your new managers and supervisors up for success.

High-Performance Teams


High-performing teams are efficient, well functioning and achieve superior business results. Contrarily, dysfunctional and toxic teams can lead to low engagement, mistakes and financial loss. We work with you to understand and identify your main challenges. We then work closely with your team to transform their current state into a high functioning, high-performing team.

Executive Coaching

Coaching allows your organization to tap into it’s most valuable resource: your people. Coaching is a method we use to unlock your people’s greatest potential, passion and productivity. We will sit down with you to understand your goals and create an Individual

Development Plan specific to helping you achieve those goals, if you are looking to:

  • Experience a personal transformation
  • Develop future leadership within the organization
  • Lead change that creates greater efficiencies
  • Learn how to empower your employees to drive result
  • Create an organizational culture that values continuous improvement

Change Management


Creating an agile and resilient culture is crucial for leading successful change initiatives. Without the support and adoption, many new initiatives fail. We work with you to develop and implement a change management strategy built for acceptance, sustainability and longevity.

Certifications and Applicable Tools

Insights Discovery is an indispensable tool that recognizes an individual’s behavior to help improve communication, decision-making and performance. Insights Discovery® uses a simple and accessible four-color model to understand an individual’s unique working style preferences. The tool measures these preferences based on responses to a short online evaluator followed by a customized and facilitated debrief and application within your organization.

Every Discovery Personal Profile provides information on an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, communications style, and their value to a team. Each profile includes suggestions for development that can be put into practice the very next day. Additional chapters are available to support learning and development across a range of areas.

Insights Discovery has its roots in the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. It is continually validated and refined by our research team to ensure it is always accurate and deeply insightful.

All too often, our natural talents go untapped. In fact, we devote more time to fixing our deficiencies than to developing our strengths, which lends us to a more successful career and fulfillment in the long run. To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001. Since then, StrengthsFinder has helped millions to discover their top five talents.

At HR Advantage Group, we are trained in using and coaching the StrengthsFinder assessment. StrengthsFinder is a great tool to use whether you are looking to find your purpose, transition careers, or to learn about the value you bring to your role, team and organization.

The 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program™ draws from the most advanced knowledge-base in the coaching field and is translated into a simple, intuitive and highly transferable framework for busy executives and managers.

And if that’s not compelling enough, check out why this director of a learning and development group was motivated to not only become a Coaching Out of the Box® licensed trainer, but to share it with others on her team and beyond.

 “At Moneris, we believe in coaching and its power to develop leaders. We also know that good coaches are made, not born. So we did a Canada-wide search for a partner who could help our HR team become more effective coaches.

Coaching Out of the Box ® was the clear winner in that they listened closely to our requirements and then created a program that was closely aligned to them. Most importantly, they delivered with outstanding, impactful facilitation.
