Cory Blair


If you asked Cory what he loves most about his role as the Chief People Officer of Affective Consulting would be, without hesitation he would say “the ability to watch people realize their full potential”.

Putting it simply- Cory loves to coach others. He lives for the opportunity to help others better understand who they are, and clears the path for them to honour their authentic selves. In fact, that’s how we fell in love with personal assessments and team building initiatives, like the Kolbe Index tool that is a cornerstone of our practice. His love of helping others has led to the delivery of over 1,700 individual and team assessments that have put people on the path to being self-aware, and created more authentic organizations. Cory has the innate ability to see the strengths in every person he meets and the remarkable affect to make people smile. 

When one cares deeply about people, a passion for creating positive organizational culture doesn’t seem to be far behind.  Cory understands that cultures are built upon a shared vision and the common values between people.  He loves helping organizations evolve their cultures into something awesome by using Affective Leadership™ practices to connect employee passion with corporate strategy.

As a true servant leader, Cory never stops challenging himself or others, and brings an inquisitive approach to problem solving. His direct and shoot-from-the-hip approach brings an open and honest approach to his engagement with individual clients as well as organizational design, and is something that is appreciated by his customers.

Cory has a degree in Political Science from the University of Regina.  Cory also has certifications in ProSci™ Change Management and Servant leadership.  Cory also has been a certified Kolbe™ Consultant since 2010.  Cory is an active member in his community serving his hometown of Balgonie Saskatchewan as a member of the Elks of Canada, Lodge #572.   He is married to his beautiful wife Jessica and has 4 children, Peyton, Ryder, Nashia and Graycee.
