CANARY CALLS

 

Have you been the canary in the coalmine, but lately you’ve become silent?

The problem isn’t you, let’s be clear on that. And it’s not just that we stop speaking out. We stop believing we have anything to say.

You are a change maker, leader, and visionary – or you damn well think you are. BUT it feels like the people who need your skills rarely welcome your voice.

So much so that somewhere along the line, the expectation to ‘Show-up and Shut-up’ became the norm. AND there are moments where we just gave up on it ever changing. 

We aren’t alone. This is where we, the canaries, take our voices back .

Book a Canary call and fly away feeling validated, grounded, resourced, and eager to sing again.

The Canary-in-you stopped singing because the world met your truth-telling with:

  • Intangible and moving roadblocks and barriers
  • The expectation to ‘show-up and shut-up’
  • Eye-rolling and hearing: “Here they go again…”
  • Fear for your job
  • Reminders to stay in your lane 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Canary Calls are:

  • 1.5 hours of one on one on zoom for $250 
  • Toggling in and out of your experience and the systems at play
  • Checking for potential gaslighting
  • Exploring your values as well as how you may be perceived
  • Taking your power back
  • Practising language and gathering skills to navigate your situation

Canary Calls aren’t:

  • A magic wand with an immediate fix
  • Bypassing the nuance and reality of working within systems that make it difficult to navigate change
  • Manipulation of others for a specific outcome
  • Making decisions for you or telling you what is the ‘right’ thing to do (because let’s be honest, there isn’t A right way)

Book a Canary call and fly away feeling validated, grounded, resourced, and eager to sing again.

Let’s strategize the shit out of how to make your next power move.

Let’s ‘stand-up and speak-out’ together.

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.
