I'm Jim Taylor, and Rolyat Corp. Ltd. is my company, through which I have been offering a broad range of services continuously since 1978.
Formerly a public school teacher, I have been a consultant and adult educator since 1984; I have taught for Grant MacEwan Community College, Red Deer College and the University of Alberta Faculty of Extension. I have been creating and delivering my own well received "Mindware Training Seminars" workshops since 1990 and have just begun offering Appreciative Inquiry workshops in Africa.
The focus of my consulting work is:
organization development, especially using Appreciative Inquiry,
performance evaluation using "BARS", and
meeting process design and facilitation in emotionally charged environments.
My vision is to continue to use Appreciative Inquiry to help organizations and groups around the world to become the best that they can be.
My work always comes with a satisfaction guarantee specific to each project.
Music is another of my passions, especially making music and singing with others. I have another web site www.singharmony.com that helps to spread the joy of singing Christmas Carols in 4-part harmony, as well as the choral parts of Handel's Messiah, Bach's Magnificat, and Vivaldi's Gloria. I have special offer for choirs for each of these choral masterpiece, whereby choirs can buy multiple copies of each part at a discounted price, or enter into a licensing agreement through which they can make their own copies of my discs at very low cost.
