For the past ten years Ken and Russell have bought their combination of business acumen and creative learning together with their unique "start/stop forum theatre for business" methodology.

"Sometimes conversations suck, but you need to have them, and this book lays out how. Russell and Ken have put together and road-tested simple, up-front, and thoughtful approaches to awkward and difficult workplace conversations."


Andrew Phung, CBC's Kim's Convenience & Run the Burbs

“Your book changed my life. It was the right read at the right time. The biggest takeaway was these conversations have to happen but they don’t have to be destructive or offensive. And that has helped me blossom, raising my confidence in my leadership abilities which are shining. So I think the least I can do is buy you a cup of coffee when we are able.”
