“Murray facilitates the first module of our leadership development program – Self and Situational Leadership – where he also incorporates the use of DISC. He has been running this three day program for us for over three years now, and has worked with over 350 of our leaders. Murray is an artful facilitator who has related extremely well to our leaders, engaging them using adult learning principles. His experience outside these two frameworks comes in quite handy in prepping leaders’ minds to be receptive to changing paradigms. His subtle responses to leaders’ questions/pushbacks are very conducive to learning, and leaves leaders with insights to

“I have known Murray since 2010, when he and ACT One began facilitating leadership and communication skills programs for Ferus. For leadership, they have trained 95 people at all levels of management, from the field to senior executive. Murray also earned the trust of many of our leaders through ongoing coaching for approximately 20 of our leaders, both in the field and head office.”

I would sincerely like to thank Murray Janewski and his team at ACT One International for their hard work and incredible contributions to our organization. We have seen a DRAMATIC improvement in employee relations, client outcomes and overall job satisfaction. Staff that were a tad miserable before are coming to work smiling and enjoying their jobs! Additionally, they are achieving more outcomes than this organization has ever seen.
The DI has recently committed to an organizational transformation to better serve our clients in attaining housing, rather than living in emergency shelter. This organization and our staff are being pushed to change almost all our practices – this is a massive journey that is rocking everything we do. The Case Management and Diversion Teams are quite literally the most important staff to drive this change as they are responsible for helping the clients find their housing solutions. ACT One’s investment in these teams has been a key factor in helping move our organizational transformation – thank you!

I had the pleasure of working with Murray Janewski and ACT One International on a management program that we designed for our management team. We had a mix of people who had been managers for a while and had the benefit of previous training as well as those who had moved into management roles, but didn’t have any training. Murray and his team put together a terrific program and coined our title – Management Excellence Program. He was communicative during the entire process, keeping me informed of what to expect. He was willing to make changes from one session to the next when we learned that something would work better for our managers. He was a consummate professional the entire time and handled everything I threw at him with class and wit. I don’t like to say that we are high maintenance, but we certainly know what it is that we want and we typically want it right away. Murray delivered!
I would highly recommend Murray and ACT One if you are looking for someone who is an excellent facilitator, and takes into account what it is that you as a business want to achieve through the training. He is full of knowledge and provides outstanding examples throughout the training. We are in the oil and gas sector so relevant examples were critical to establishing credibility for our managers. Again, Murray delivered!

In 2019 we asked Murray and ACT One Learning to engage our leadership team as a Stage 4 company, to help us “Navigate the Growth Curve.” The strategies we came up with have been implemented and we have now grown to a Stage 6 company. We brought Murray back in 2020 to again plan strategy for the next 3 – 5 years, and develop a concrete plan for 2020. The entire leadership team subsequently met and all agreed that Murray and ACT One Learning is the right partner for Sky Eye Measurement. And the timing could not have been more appropriate given the changes taking place worldwide.
