About CSC

The CSC Mission:

Canyon Springs Consulting exists to help leaders and teams create meaningful, lasting change in their work and in their lives, by offering in-depth guidance that is customized specifically to the unique needs of each client.

My Background:

I arrived at my current profession with a strong and varied background in small business, nonprofit work, behavioral health, and outdoor education. I earned a MA in Applied Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle , and a BA in Counseling Psychology from Prescott College .My credentials also include certification as a Certified Retreat Coach .

When I'm not working (and even when I am!), I am the happiest mom to our young sons Henry and Robin. Owning and managing a small farm with my husband also fills my days with joy and countless life lessons, as we care for over 50 animals and a variety of plants, manage nearly 20 farm workers every year, and sell lamb, eggs, produce, and other farm goods at the Bella Coola Farmers Market.

We are so fortunate to live in the beautiful coastal valley of Bella Coola, British Columbia , in Canada.

You can also find out more about me on my partner website, the Retreat Coach Network. And, join my mailing list , which will give you periodic updates of my retreats, teleclasses, and travels.

Alison Kennedy Sayers
Owner of
Canyon Springs Consulting


“Alison facilitated our management team year-end debrief and planning. We walked away with numerous ideas on guidelines and structure for future meetings, and increased awareness of interpersonal communication…we all learned new skills and developed more self-confidence in approaching other managers and our employees with difficult issues.”

- Trevor H.
Executive Assistant
Global Expeditions, Inc.

"The work of Alison Kennedy-Sayers proved invaluable to our organization.  Her thoughtful processes guided us towards greater clarity and organizational insight...just what we were looking for.  In addition, her training better prepared us to handle change, conflict, and growth as individuals and an organization.  We were able to work out difficult answers, but more importantly, we better know how to phrase the important questions.  She is a master of her art."      

- Bruce Hucko
Chair , Moab Arts Council
