Aaron Kinnart is a seasoned organization development consultant, coach and bodyworker. He guides leaders and organizations to cultivate the capacities to navigate our increasingly complex world while contributing to more equitable and sustainable futures.
Aaron works from the ground of his indigenous roots as a bi-racial Anishinaabe (Ojibway) man.
