About Refinery

Refinery Leadership Partners is an operating entity of BBA, Inc. We're an international leadership development and consulting firm. Our bold approach to organizational development is a cross-pollination of academic research, behavioural principles and customized learning experiences. We're a highly skilled, passionate group of people who share a natural curiosity and drive for our work, as well as a desire to develop our clients and ourselves. We know most people don't unleash their full potential because they are unable or even afraid to dig deep and challenge their own perceptions and beliefs. We support leaders to create meaningful work environments that enable people to come to work and fully engage. We do this for personal reasons: We believe everyone has a better, healthier, stronger version of themselves that is just waiting to be unleashed upon the world, and we want to help make that happen.

Reality check!

Those who have observed the way we work, as well as those who have experienced our passion would describe what we do at Refinery as fun—and they wouldn't be wrong! However, it's important for us to stress how seriously we take this work and the level of commitment required to design, develop and deliver learning that has a real impact. In other words, we run a very tight ship to be able to deliver our work so it does appear seamless, at an exceptionally high-quality level. A critical part of being committed to 'the work' means living it personally, which is not for the faint of heart. Living our work means acknowledging that we're all human and imperfect; it means holding yourself accountable for ongoing personal development; being open to stretching outside of your comfort zone in service of growth; giving and receiving regular feedback; nurturing curiosity; and always welcoming diverse perspectives—be it in a formal meeting or your inner monologue.
