Axiom Performance IncGreg Pinks

Chief Leadership Officer

While considering career choices, Greg listened intently to the conversations of his parents’ friends, hoping to discover which jobs were the most exciting. Instead, what he heard was a lot of frustration and disenchantment with the daily grind.

Perplexed that people would spend most of their adult lives in unfulfilling situations, Greg sought to understand a career path where he could help make peoples’ working lives more enjoyable and more meaningful. Though he was still in high school, this was the start of Greg’s passion for creating great workplaces.

Greg finished his Bachelor’s degree (for which he studied employee satisfaction) and then his Master’s degree (his research on employee commitment was published by Queen’s University). He then started his career in earnest.

Greg has over 25 years experience in business strategy, leadership coaching, and employee engagement, much of which he gained during his time as Vice President for two publicly traded Canadian companies.

Greg supports senior leadership teams across Canada, engages top talent in leadership development, and is an executive coach within private and public organizations.

Melanie Hill

Collaborative Partner

Challenging ideas of leadership since her kindergarten years Melanie once informed her mother “you’re not the boss of me, I’m the boss of me, and I choose to listen to you.

This led to a great conversation and a persistent curiosity that influenced her earliest management jobs in hospitality and led to a career focused on people at work.

Melanie’s people-centred, process-focused approach helps managers and their teams cultivate skills and habits that foster trust, restore resilience, create clarity and strengthen connections for more vibrant results at work and beyond. With close to 20 years of professional and consulting experience in Organizational Development, Human Resources and Employee Relations, Melanie is the outside thinker that every team needs.

Melanie is a Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL), has training from the Canadian Organization Development Institute (CODI), has a Master’s Certificate in Adult Training and Development from York University, is an Actionable Conversations Consulting Partner and certified Emotional Intelligence EQ-i 2.0® and EQ 360® Coach and Trainer.

Melanie offers dynamic facilitation, learning, coaching and expertise in emotional intelligence, leadership, workplace communication, and culture change.
