A Rewarding Career with RLG

At RLG International we go beyond traditional consulting, by coaching face-to-face, with individuals and teams, in companies committed to “connecting the front line to the bottom line.” Our work as performance coaches enables employees at all levels to become involved and find their voice in the corporate challenge. Since 1983 RLG has led over 2500 performance improvement projects worldwide for multinationals in oil and gas, mining, nuclear energy, aerospace, defense, refining, forest products, agriculture, manufacturing, distribution, transportation, finance, and information technology. We are, without a doubt, a different kind of consulting firm. 

RLG performance coaches coach for success. We use specific processes to implement significant behavioural changes that affect performance. The qualifications for a performance coach include a Master’s degree in business or a related field, 10 years or more full-time work experience, proven success working with people from shop floor to senior management, and proven leadership experience. Also, previous experience in consulting, project management, engineering, facilitation or coaching would be an asset. Unlike other consultants, we and our families relocate to most project sites for the duration of the assignments, usually ranging in length from 18 to 24 months. This commitment allows us to focus exclusively on the client company, integrate with the employees, and work with them to achieve long-term sustainable change. The key to the RLG process of winning is a strong desire to make a significant difference with and through people.
