About Limestone Leadership Link

At Make It Matter Media, we believe your story is one worth sharing. That’s why we work with people to help them share their gifts and talents with the world in a way that is practical, modern, and effective.

One way we do this is through the Limestone Leaders Link Speaker Series – professional development and networking events which aim to help eastern Ontario leaders, owners, and senior managers to connect, grow, succeed, and have fun.

In keeping with our business philosophy, a portion of the proceeds from this event will support a Kingston-area charity.

About our Speaker

Karyn Ross is co-author of the Shingo Award-winning, The Toyota Way to Service Excellence: Lean Transformation in Service Organizations.

An internationally acclaimed consultant, coach, and lean practitioner, Karyn has taught organizations of all sizes, in sectors as diverse as insurance, HR, transportation, and retail how to use creativity combined with Toyota Way principles, practices, and tools. This powerful combination enables organizations to create better, more effective and efficient ways to work and the peak services that each of their customers wants, now and for the future.

While many other Lean consultants focus on implementing tools, Karyn teaches teams how to use Practical Creativity™ to continuously strive towards service excellence. By developing each person’s capability through Coached Practice, she focuses on the means: the ‘how’, and not just the ‘ends’ or the results, because “how we get there is as important as where we are going”.

A practicing artist, with an MFA in Sculpture, Karyn specializes in developing your team’s creativity and divergent thinking skills so that your organization can flourish, thrive and grow and fulfill its purpose.
