We help manage stress in the workplace to build a healthier, happier work culture…
Stress is a necessary and vital source of energy which can help people respond to challenge and achieve peak performance. An overabundance of stress, however, especially without effective means of managing (dis)stress, can have severe repercussions for both individuals and the businesses where they work. Particularly during times of economic difficulty where the future is uncertain and employees feel they have little control, (dis)stress can have an insidious effect on your business. Toombs Inc. Stress consultants bring highly developed skills for working the people, teams and businesses to find effective strategies for managing stress and increasing resilience.
Companies seeking to retain their top internal talent often consider reskilling and their redeployment within the business as a creative solution. While talented employees are retained, such internal career transitions are not without their challenges as they represent significant and typically unanticipated career changes to employees. Toombs Inc. consultants leverage a common set to skills and tools to help employees navigate such transitions, from using self-assessment methods to help employees connect to their skills and talents, effectively planning their transition, and collaborating with leaders to successfully make the move from one role to another.
A great team is more than the sum of its individual members. Great teams, characterized by high collaboration, interaction, effective process and healthy ways of leveraging conflict, are capable of producing amazing results. Whether a team is new, in transition, or striving to achieve their potential, Toombs Inc. consultants bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the task of helping teams and their leaders achieve high performance.
The forces of organizational culture are subtle and can be challenging to discern. Shared values, beliefs and assumptions about ‘being’ in a particular workplace are rarely explicit, and yet guide behaviour, decision-making and process. Teams, departments and organizations experiencing change, particularly in response to business demands or during times of integration, can benefit from Toombs Inc. consultants working with corporate leaders to help identify key dimensions of culture, diagnose areas for cultural development and integration, and help bring people together to make meaningful and lasting change.
Toombs Inc. consultants bring both highly developed expertise and extraordinary experience to organizational needs assessment, adult learning design, facilitation, and evaluation of corporate learning interventions.

Conflict can be a force for good within teams and businesses where people have the skills and capacity to harness it’s energy. However, interpersonal conflict can be a source of great distress for individuals and teams lacking the skills, resources and guidance to resolve differences between people. Toombs Inc. consultants work with managers to build their capacity for managing conflict within their teams, and to promote healthy ways of managing disagreements and solving problems.
Returning to work from an extended absence can represent a significant challenge to successfully coming back. Whether the absence is the result of a secondment, sabbatical, family, or health issue, we work with HR staff and managers to help construct made-to-order return to work plans. We can facilitate the effective communication of expectations, help integrate accommodations, evaluate skills, or support an employee’s transition to roles which best match their current capabilities.
