About Me

My name is Kellie Donohue.

I’m a traveller, human resources expert, and organizational culture guide.  I have lived and worked in the Arctic and the Tropics, broken bread on the Emerald Island and in the Far East. Calgary is my homebase for work and for travel.

My travels have taught me that culture is complex, always evolving, and if you aren’t careful will result in lost work opportunities, hurt feelings, and misguided attempts to make a difference.

I work with people who want to:

  • Understand how organizational cultures impact the bottom line through human perspective.
  • Incorporate HR systems and programs that support employees and profits.
  • Learn how to develop impactful interpersonal communication skills resulting in confident and competent staff.
  • Develop a respectful workplace through mediation, ombuds services, and coaching.
I am on a mission to make today’s workplace cultures civil, inclusive, fair, and profitable.

Why do I do this work?

Through my experience, education, and travels, I’ve had the privilege of working in organizations that consistently demonstrated civility, inclusion, and fairness across the business. I’ve also had the chance to learn from my experiences in organizations still on the path to creating a positive culture. The strength of my collective experience is knowing what to look for, knowing how to interpret what I see, and knowing how to help leaders see their culture through a different lens, and act to create the organization they want.
