About Us

Leadership Coach Brenda Augustin

We coach leaders and teams, challenging them to reflect, take focused action, maximize their impact and achieve what is most important to them.

Our individual coaching provides a confidential, non-judging resource to help people work through their challenges and move forward with meaningful impact. Our approach balances a concern for people with a focus on results and outcomes. ​

Our team coaching approach generates open, honest, constructive feedback through interviews or group meetings. We use assessments to create conversation that helps team members get beyond superficial issues. The perspective this brings enables the team to leverage each other’s strengths and truly collaborate to achieve results.

We leverage peer coaching to build learning communities. Focused on an organizational need for a new capability or behaviour, our process combines content that adds to the group's knowledge with coaching skills to support and learn from each other.

We bring a business perspective that comes from industry breadth, different functional expertise and senior level experience with some of Canada’s leading and most reputable organizations - Johnson & Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Canadian Tire, Tim Hortons, Sony, CIBC, Kraft, Magna International, and J. Walter Thompson – in HR/Leadership Development and Marketing/Advertising.

We are accredited coaches and members of the International Coach Federation, and practice according to their competencies and ethics. Trust, integrity and authenticity go to the core of how we engage with others. We are seasoned facilitators who know how to keep the conversation positive and moving forward to maximize team learning.

Testimonials for Augustin Connected Inc.

  • Brenda’s Everything DiSC workshops were very effective in helping team members learn more about themselves and quickly connect with one another. Understanding and harnessing differences in communication and style has led to improved collaboration, innovation, problem solving, and helped to accelerate the integration of new team members.

  • Working with Brenda on DiSC allowed my team to better connect with each other. Since that training, we are more effective in our communication and we maximize everyone’s individual differences for the benefit of the group. Brenda helped us do it in a safe and productive environment, where everyone felt confident that they could open up and be real.

  • We used DISC with my large multifunctional department to create improvement in our feedback, development and performance discussions. These are not always easy and can cause situations where employees feel defensive. DiSC set the stage for courageous and constructive conversations and had the overall impact of better individual and team performance

    Vice-PresidentStrategic Affairs
  • I would highly recommend Brenda to any leader interested in using DiSC to develop their team. Her workshops bring business and organizational challenges to life, while offering more practical applications of the framework that can elevate high performance teams and improve how individuals communicate and work together to achieve business goals.
