The Refinery Leadership Partners Inc. (The Refinery) is a privately-held leadership development consulting firm. We are headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with offices in Toronto, Ontario, Mexico City, and Santiago, Chile. We have worked with clients across many geographies, including Canada (BC, AB, SK, QC, ON, & NL), USA, Mexico, Chile, Singapore and Australia.
Established in 2002, we have built a firm that takes traditional development of leadership to a new level. The Refinery was co-founded by Barbara Ross-Denroche to address a significant need in the leadership industry: to dig deep, to be inspired, and to courageously do the work that leads to real, ongoing development.
We create learning environments where leaders:
• Build the ability, intuition and will to be their real selves
• Understand the people and business challenges they face
• Grow beyond their current limiting assumptions to become the leaders that FCC needs now and into the future.
Working from our clients’ organizational vision and strategic performance needs, we design programs that are just the right fit for them. Our team then delivers the experiences with progressive and engaging methods. The results are individual, team, and organizational growth.
What unites us is an understanding of development, a passion for people, and a commitment to performance. We apply this in service of helping our clients to create aligned, sustained business results through the development of people. We do this at scale in global contexts.
