Executive Skills to Support


“The most important thing I have learned in my teaching and training experience is to cultivate an environment where the student feels successful and empowered, supported first and foremost by developing a genuine connection”.

Brenna has worked with a multitude of clients, from information technology, to yoga and fitness, to oil and gas, to retail operations, and academia, each who boast distinctive skill sets, knowledge bases, needs, and goals, and are all motivated differently. Fostering a meaningful connection with a student is essential for success, a skill Brenna prides herself on and the reason she loves to teach, coach, train, and mentor.

Brenna has unknowingly been conducting training and learning and development sessions for her entire working life (2 decades!), and it was when she was partway through her first 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training (she’s past 700 hours now, and has had the pleasure of co-facilitating 3, 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training Programs) when she realized how much she loves not just learning, but coaching.

Brenna understands that not only do people engage with, learn, and absorb information differently, be it visual, aural, verbal, or kinesthetic; there is an element of exercising all available platforms and resources to tell a story. Brenna possesses an inherent ability to communicate complex ideas and data in a clear and simple way and can effectively tell a story from start to finish using various mediums and tools with an in-depth understanding of student needs and effectual solutions. She has spent a number of years coaching, mentoring, and counselling university-level students, and has spent nearly a decade facilitating one-on-one and small and large group training sessions and workshops to further advance the professional development and executive skills of adults.

When she’s not sporting her superhero mask at Kaizen, you can find Brenna teaching one of her six classes a week at Lagree YYC, or working on one of many awesome IT projects for Dalhousie University.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer to your question, please contact us and we’ll get right back to you.
How does Kaizen determine what my child’s Executive Skills strengths and deficits are?
We are data collectors. We gather as much relevant data regarding your child's learning as possible. This includes feedback from the parents, educational psychological assessments (if available), information from Kaizen's free questionnaire, and any school evaluations or assessments that can be shared with us.

Kaizen has partnered with Mindprint Learning, creator of the world’s leading online cognitive test developed by neuroscientists in the Brain Behavior Laboratory at Penn State University’s Perelman School of Medicine. This Learning Profile Assessment, combined with two, 1:1 consultations with Kaizen’s Director gives you a clear picture of where your child shines and where they need support.

Learn more about the Learning Profile Assessment.

We also offer a FREE online questionnaire to help you identify your child’s Executive Functioning needs & strengths before committing to the Coaching Intake Process.

Is Kaizen Coaching the same as tutoring?
No. Tutoring teaches students WHAT to learn; Kaizen teaches students HOW to learn and WHY it’s important. The essence of Kaizen Education Services is to foster results through incremental steps, focused on building confidence through understanding. Our objective is to highlight the importance of establishing differentiated processes and systems that contribute to the overall long-term personal and academic growth of each learner. Empowering brains for learning and life. Skills that can be applied across your child’s entire curriculum and beyond.
How does my child start their coaching sessions with Kaizen?
Contact us to book your intake, and we will match your child with a coach so that they can get started.
My child has had a psychoeducational assessment completed and needs help. Is Kaizen the right fit?
Certainly! Oftentimes, a psychoeducational assessment is completed and results are shared, but lack guidance and support for the appropriate next steps leaving you, the parent, wondering, “What now?” If strategies are provided, you are often left to your own devices which can create additional frustration.

The curriculum from which Kaizen operates is tailored to your child and their very specific needs. By sharing the results of your child’s psychoeducational assessment with your child’s coach, we can work together to best support your child academically, intellectually, and beyond.

My child has ADHD. How can Kaizen Coaching help?
Typically, executive functions are delayed up to 30% in a child diagnosed with ADHD. More than 85% of Kaizen’s students have been diagnosed with ADHD, and more than 70% with an additional or other learning difference. Executive Function deficits are amplified in those with ADHD and, as a result, our coaches are specially trained in effective strategies and methodologies to best support your child.
