Become the leader everyone wants to follow. 

Confident and capable with

an eye on both people and performance. 

Whether you have been newly promoted to a leadership position, or have been in the seat for many years, chances are that what got you ‘here‘, won’t get you where you want to ‘be‘ – a confident, capable and compassionate leader has an eye on both people and performance that everyone wants to follow. 

I know you have big ambitions (no, this isn’t a dirty word).

You want to be respected and admired in your company as someone who is fun, engaging, high vibe and high performing!!

Welcome to the Inside Out Leadership Program.

The program designed exclusively for leaders – corporate or entrepreneurs – who want to discover and leverage their own unique leadership superpowers to build, develop and inspire a high-performance team.  

INSIDE OUT LEADERSHIP combines a simple 3-step process — individual assessment, proven training and customized implementation support  — for maximum impact.

Chances are if you landed here, you (or someone on your team) might be …


Feeling lost and wondering where to start.  Everyone is looking to you for their direction and support.

Overwhelmed! I’m in way over my head. How do I accomplish all the work?

Bewildered! I mean, people — they’re so complicated!! They all have different needs and wants and I’m supposed to adjust to each one.  Exhausting!  

Carrying the heavy burden of trying to figure out “leadership”.  You feel the weight of the entire team on your shoulders. 

A deep desire to do this right.  And by ‘this’, we’re talking leadership and nothing has felt ‘right’ or ‘authentic’ for a long time. So many models, strategies and frameworks … argh!

Leadership is rewarding, inspiring and empowering! 


Here’s the thing… as a leader, you have access to a library of information, tools and resources.
So much so, it can be overwhelming.   

And let’s face it, most of the information sits on a shelf and we end up doing the same old things expecting better results.  

(Isn’t that the definition of insanity!?)

There is a better way.

I created the Inside Out Leadership program so that you can …


Tackle conflict and tough conversations head on - end the drama once and for all.


Take control of your schedule and gain back precious time.


Focus your efforts in the areas that will have the maximum impact.

Increase engagement and performance ... it's not an either or situation!

Unlock your teams creativity, innovation and collaboration.

Use the right leadership tool at the right time and feel confident doing so.

 See below for the full details of what each aspect of the program entails.

360 Leadership Assessment

The assessment process is designed to ensure that participants achieve the maximum benefit in understanding their personal leadership strengths and opportunities for developing their capabilities in the context of business goals and organizational culture.

360 Assessment Survey

The participant, direct reports, peers, and supervisor are provided with an online link to the quantitative 360 assessment.  Interviews are conducted with a sample of direct reports & peers along with the supervisor to gather qualitative data and supporting examples of leadership behaviors, strengths, and areas for improvement.

Leadership Assessment Report 

A custom report that integrates information from all the assessments and our interactive session.

Interactive Debrief

This in-person conversation is designed to gain further insights, debrief the assessment, and covers a review of their background, plus key career milestones, successes, and challenges.


I partner with Blanchard®  to provide a wide range of leadership training through face to face and virtual facilitation as well as Blanchard’s Digital Learning Journeys.  This mix of delivery methods allows for world-class leadership development experiences, curated for leaders at different levels, in a flexible, scalable, self-paced format. They let you reach learners across time zones and geographies, giving them a unified, consistent learning experience.

Building Trust / Conversational Capacity / Self Leadership

Leaders learn a new language for leadership that increases the quality and quantity of conversations with team members. This accelerates employee development, increases performance, and supports autonomy.

  • Lead people forward using a proven set of adaptive leadership skills
  • Achieve critical results with people
  • Set goals and manage day-to-day performance
  • Encourage growth and development
  • Build trust and restore it when it’s been compromised

Leading with Empathy

Leading with Empathy is based on the leadership book Inside Out Empathy by Erin Thorp and explores how to leverage the power of empathy to build, develop and inspire high-performing teams.  Participants build skills in all 4 areas of emotional intelligence – Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management.

Training sessions happen 3 times per month for 1.5 hours in duration.  

Implementation Workshops

Once the Assessments are completed and compiled, and coursework underway, I work closely with the leadership team and participants to ensure a comprehensive development program is in place to support participants in transferring the skills and knowledge gained in the training modules, creating sustainable results. This consists of bi-weekly workshops with the participants and weekday support via email and text.

Hi, I’m Erin Thorp.

I’m an Author, Speaker, and Coach for leaders who struggle with conflict, communication, and performance during high-stress times. I support them in navigating difficult conversations, building powerful teams, and communicating with empathy so that they can lead confidently.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Calgary, am an Associate Certified Coach through Integral Coaching Canada and have over 20 years of experience leading construction projects and teams. 

In 2017, I authored Inside Out Empathy, and began speaking and coaching about using the superpower of empathy to build effective teams. I share my own stories of leadership and what I learned along the way. It's the book I wish I had when I was just starting out. 

I’m committed to discovering your leader within and supporting you to lead with impact — from the inside out.
