Ron Foss, Senior Partner of EQ Management Group has over 30 years experience in the management consulting and executive coaching field. A graduate of McGill University, he holds a Masters of Management; in addition he holds a Business Diploma from Insead and a Financial Management Diploma from London Business School. Ron is also a certified facilitator on various leading edge leadership, team or individual development programs.
Ron was with Royal Trust for many years, where he held regional and national office management / executive positions. After the Royal Bank of Canada acquired the organization in 1993, he spent the next five years involved in merger integration, strategic planning and sales management. Ron then moved on to lead the Royal Bank of Canada's Royal Learning Network, a specialized training and development centre providing continuous learning and organizational renewal worldwide. It was during this time that he developed a keen interest in the management of human capital and has since dedicated his career to helping others improve their people management skills.
In 1999 Ron completed the International Masters in Practicing Management program (IMPM) at McGill University. He traveled to the United Kingdom, India and Japan to study managerial concepts and competencies within a global perspective. Ron's written work on the Humanistic and Encouraging Competencies of Managers was completed under the direction of the program's lead architect Professor Henry Mintzberg. It became the basis for Ron's book "From Mindsets to Heartbeats." He has since written many articles encouraging leaders to lead with confidence, conviction and commitment.
A native of Montreal Canada, Ron is proud of his Quebec heritage and in his continuing commitment to building and embracing diversity in the workplace.
