Company: Viewpoint Leadership
Position: President + Chief Learning Architect
What do you do?
I’m a full-time mom, entrepreneur, learning architect, children’s author, and humanitarian. My company, Viewpoint Leadership, is a learning and development firm, with the aim of designing experiences that build resilience. We deliver training sessions for all types of organizations in the areas of emotional intelligence, unconscious bias, psychological capital and leading millennials. We recently developed an award-winning seven-day leadership program for McMaster University. I’m also a Forbes Contributor and just launched a national study (in partnership with Thomson Reuters, Canadian HR Reporter and Women of Influence) about Tall Poppy Syndrome in the workplace. Our data will be released in the fall along with my upcoming picture book titled Who Will You Be?, which is designed for both children and adults based on my TEDx talk and signature workshop for K-12 Ontario students. Each year, my company contributes to impact projects around the world. This year, we will be partnering with SchoolBOX to build a library in rural Nicaragua. Above all, I’m Kishan Jai’s mom — Kishan is my son who is full of life, energy and love.
What do you like most about your current role?
I’m a lifelong learner and my work allows me to continually explore and grow as an individual. Every week is different and changes based on the needs of my clients, the projects we are working on and the training sessions we are delivering. It’s a dynamic and interesting job where I get to learn from, and with, people from various industries and sectors. My favourite part about working in the learning and development space is being able to facilitate transformation by developing engaging, enriching and enlightening experiences. For me, it’s about: perspective building, potential raising and possibility thinking.
If you are not at work, you are...
With my toddler — likely going for a walk, on the swings, napping, reading or watching the Wiggles!

Leveraging new technology for professional learning requires some creative thinking — and it also takes money.
A few years ago, a group at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte received a grant from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction that paid for notebooks and software for creating a professional development program for elementary school teachers. The program’s goal was to improve student achievement and higher-order thinking skills through more effective use of educational technology.
Talent management is a popular term and has become one of the main factors in driving the competition and development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
It is a key process in Human Resource Development (HRD), and for learning and development professionals. To develop talent and maintain competitive advantage, however, SMEs face some challenges due to its scale. Therefore businesses first need to understand its importance and to identify the talent in their organization.
When it comes to home projects, I am a step-by-step kind of girl. I read the instructions from start to finish, and then reread and execute each step. My husband, on the other hand, prefers to study the diagrams and then jump right in. Think owner’s manual versus IKEA instructions. This preference for one approach over another when learning new information is not uncommon. Indeed the notion that people learn in different ways is such a pervasive belief in American culture that there is a thriving industry dedicated to identifying learning styles and training teachers to meet the needs of different learners.
Chief Learning Officer
Living in a world that is constantly on is tiring. Instead of meaningful milestones, life more often feels like an endless series of appointments.
To add insult to injury, we’re simply not getting enough rest to cope with it all. Fed by flashy smartphones and addictive apps, we are in the midst of a sleep crisis. According to analysis by the Rand Corporation, our collective lack of sleep is costing $411 billion in the U.S. economy alone. We stay up too late answering emails, checking off to-do lists, responding to texts and mindlessly surfing the internet.
