About 2WA Consulting
2WA Consulting Inc. is a boutique firm that specializes in helping organizations work more effectively by teaching leaders and their staff to change their behaviours. We’re known for being practical — and it’s this practical, get-results approach that has kept us at the forefront of our industry since 1996.
Building a “2-way” partnership with our clients, we take the time to understand their goals and challenges, and then create solutions tailored to meet their needs. 2WA’s commitment to honest collaboration and thoughtful execution means we leave our clients with much more than a report. We deliver real results by identifying what they need to stop doing, start doing and keep doing to achieve lasting change.

What our clients love about 2WA
The progress we have made, and will continue to make in the coming years, attests to the professionalism, experience and expertise of 2WA. I cannot recommend them too highly.
You have definitely created a “stir” in VPD. The teams have been doing lots of thinking and reflecting. A powerful session, Anne … you are an amazing role model for us.
Because of 2WA’s assistance, the GRT enjoys a solid accountability framework to better monitor and manage the business coupled with stronger alignment among our managerial, supervisory and professional staff.
2WA Consulting has provided me and my companies with remarkably clear, insightful, and actionable analyses over the past decade. Topics of their analyses have included remuneration, motivation, change management, employee reassignment, leadership, coaching, and data mining in all areas of business organization. Mike and Anne have distinctly different, yet compatible, styles and perspectives — this dynamic gives 2WA distinct value.
Thank you Anne so much for everything. You and Michael have done an excellent job and without 2WA we definitely could not have done it. You went above and beyond.
I was quite impressed with [2WA’s] ability to capture the nuances of our concerns and help develop a strategic plan in a relatively short time. Michael and Anne have the knowledge and experience to get to the heart of issues and gain an understanding of corporate culture.
2WA always demonstrates the utmost in professionalism and thoroughness with every project and training session. 2WA presented to our level, kept me interested, stuck to timeframes – appreciated.
2WA offers practical, thoughtful advice. It provides value for money and it delivers what it promises.
The meetings are well designed and speak to our specific needs
