Hi, I’m Brenda.

My life journey has been a tapestry of personal and professional opportunities, marked by successes, near-successes, challenges, and so many learning opportunities!


I have had the pleasure of building multiple businesses in my career, two of which I am still passionate about today; 30 years of corporate brand development, and 5 years of strategic business coaching.

The experiences I’ve had, the connections and organizations I’ve aligned myself with, and my extensive volunteer involvement have awarded me diverse leadership roles to hone many skills, and serve my clients better.

In 2018, I broadened my business expertise by becoming a Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach. This education helped me to guide business leaders in thinking more creatively, and aligning with the Kaizen philosophy of “Small Steps for Continual Results.”

As an advocate of continual learning, I went on to attain my Leadership Coaching Certification through Essential Impact, and have my Associate Certified Coach (ACC) accreditation from The International Coaching Federation. I have also recently achieved my Prosci Certified Change Practitioner accreditation. 

Opportunities are abundant. Let’s connect and see what we can accomplish together. 

Brenda Kolasa


I take pride in being able to partner and collaborate with dynamic organizations nation-wide, that share my vision of creating strong businesses and it’s leaders through powerful training and coaching.  I’ve had the privilege of contributing to the success stories of various organizations, including The Government of Canada, Ford Canada, Red Deer Polytechnic, amongst others.

My collaborative partnership with Lead the Way Development gives me the pleasure of being able to offer unique and customized training programs for teams that are grant-eligible for up to 2/3 of the cost. Just ask!


With 30 years as an accomplished professional with a wealth of experience, my expertise is diverse and lends for a unique approach for my clients. Join me on a transformative journey where each small step leads to continual results, fostering growth and success.

A few clients I’ve had the privilege of working with:


“I had the pleasure of working with Brenda, and it was truly a mind-opener for my business. As a small business owner and a new one, I was struggling with my business and day-to-day activities. I knew I needed guidance, and I am so grateful that I found Brenda.

From our very first conversation, I could tell that Brenda was not just an expert in business strategy, but also someone who truly cares about her clients. She took the time to understand my business, my goals, and my challenges and worked with me to develop a customized plan to overcome those challenges and achieve my goals.

With her guidance, I was able to identify new opportunities for growth, and develop a marketing strategy that really resonated with my target audience. The results speak for themselves – my business has seen growth and I feel more confident and in control than ever before.

But what really sets Brenda apart is her ongoing support and encouragement. She is always there to answer questions, provide guidance, and offer a fresh perspective when I need it most. I truly feel like I have a partner in my business, and I can’t thank Brenda enough for all she has done for me.

If you’re a small business owner looking to take your business to the next level, I can’t recommend Brenda enough. She is an absolute gem and I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with her.”
