Hear what people are saying about working with Cal and his team

In my capacity as the Producer of Vancouver Get Inspired Talks, I worked closely with Cal Misener during the 5 months preceding the October 20, 2018 event at which he spoke. During that time I observed that Cal was highly knowledgeable in the field of workplace happiness, was readily coachable, did things effectively and efficiently, was a skilled communicator and inspired others with his ‘can do’ attitude. Cal was always a delight to work with. His reasoned thinking, fair-mindedness, positive attitude and boundless enthusiasm made him a great team-mate. He was much respected by all. Cal made a huge contribution to the success of Vancouver Get Inspired Talks.

Over the course of his impressive career at TELUS, Cal was known for driving results and making significant contributions to our business. He is well known for his ability to build strong relationships across the organization, and I know the team benefited greatly from his passion and commitment to making TELUS a great place to work.

When it comes to specific achievements in his role within the National Business Delivery team, there are many worth highlighting, the most significant being the focus and commitment he drove relating to our People & Culture strategy. His accomplishments included:
• Establishing a People & Culture Roadmap that defined our team from a strategy, structure and culture perspective – who we are, what we do and how we do it
• Implementing a process to drive continuous improvement based on direct feedback from the team (XIP)
• Establishing a structure for supporting team members to grow their careers within the team and TELUS (CPM)
• Developed a People & Culture framework for our team that served to help team members align their personal passion with their career and facilitated workshops to align team members and leaders across our organization reaching more than 700 leaders and team members across the country
• All activities supported an incredible 31 percentage point improvement in Team Engagement over a four year period (54% in 2011 to 85% in 2015)

There are many things that you can do to increase the productivity of people in a company. Many managers and directors think of technology … faster computers, phone systems and software. Cal put it to me that if our people could be 100% aligned to the culture and fully engaged with the purpose of Mercury Computers then we would get a significant uplift in productivity and CREATIVITY.

We engaged Cal to run a 1 day workshop in our offices where all our staff could attend. There were many sceptics BEFORE, however the feedback and goodwill that was created during the workshop day and the positive feedback by our staff was remarkable.

Cal provides a journey for the people – not just a tips and techniques seminar .. it is inspiring, personally challenging and sometimes cathartic … during the seminar stuff comes out that you have not had the time or courage to think about.

Cal is a natural speaker and easily bonds with the people he addresses. I would unconditionally recommend his workshops if you want to lift your people and business.

Cal did a seminar about the concepts in his book, “The Freedom Framework” at our Permanent Beta Event in Amsterdam Netherlands.

With more than 450 people attending the event, Cal’s training was one of the highest ranking of the 45 seminars and training that we had that day. I would recommend Cal as a speaker but his message is much more than that.
I would say that with his intensive study, research and over 20 years of leadership experience, Cal is a thought leader in the personal and business development industry.

I’ve known Cal for 30 years and his positive spirit and enthusiasm is inspiring. His tactical approach to goal setting and always trying to get more out of life has been something I’ve always admired. Cal’s work around people and culture and in particular, helping people ensure they are aligned between their personal passions and the work that they do is extraordinary. Cal has worked with myself and my team in order to take our business and our culture to the next level.

No question I’d recommend Cal to anyone looking for street proven leadership experience.

I was fortunate enough to have Cal speak to my monthly real estate meetup about alignment. The guests were all very impressed with the quality of his presentation. I personally really liked his candor and willingness to let his guard down and “be real” with everyone. With my own staff I have started talking about alignment in order to get everyone more excited about the work they are doing. Definitely a lot of value packed into his perspective and approach.
