You’re an inside change-maker
I’m Fiona Proctor and I am a leadership training consultant. I help people working in social institutions (such as government, education, healthcare, and social services) be the kinds of leaders you’ve been looking for.
I call leaders like you “inside change makers”.
That’s because you’re not an armchair warrior, pointing fingers or taking cheap shots. Instead, you’re in the work and in the arena. You’re inside the institution, trying to leverage your role and relationships to create powerful changes that ripple out.
I live and work on the traditional lands of the Anishnaabeg peoples, past and present. I acknowledge that the foundation of Canada was built by the labour of stolen bodies. We do not live in a just and equitable society; lives continue to be stolen, our society continues to profit from underpaid workers contributions, and the system of colonization maintains a racist, caste-based society. My life’s work is dedicated to unsettling the settler within.
