Learning & Development
Make a meaningful impact on your employees.
Our Focus Areas
We see the value in investing in your people and want to help you with your learning and development needs. Our award-winning consultants design learning and development programs, series, and modules in three broad areas:
Our experience is extensive, and our learning and development programs, series, and modules are second to none. It is who we are and what we do! We care, are focused, and have spent our lives dedicated to honing our craft. Our learning and development specialists know how to teach, and meaningfully engage with people! We also remain current with the most recent research, developments, and trends in these areas. Our consultants are leaders in their respective areas, publishing books and research and giving lectures and presentations at international and national conferences. All of this only matters, though, if we can help you make a positive difference!
Three Engaging Formats
We offer three different formats for learning and development initiatives: programs, series, and modules. All of our formats are engaging and effective!
Our program format is the most involved, and requires the most resources. Our programs use multiple strategies for teaching and learning, incorporate assessments to evaluate if people are applying what they have learned, and extend over a period of time.
Our series format focuses on knowing. We make sure that participants understand the concepts being taught, appreciate their value and importance, and know how to apply the information learned. The series format includes multiple learning modules over a period of time.
Our module format includes a one-time seminar or workshop focused on in-depth understanding of a very specific topic.
Organization Strategy & Transformation
We work with executive and management teams to develop and improve their understanding of strategy, strategic planning, and strategic management. Our consultants demystify strategy and build a shared language and understanding of organizational strategy that gets the team on the same page. This is especially useful when talking about and working on strategy. It makes all the difference!
We also work extensively with HR executives and teams to develop the breadth and depth of their knowledge in strategy, strategic planning, and strategic management. This helps them to effectively shape their organization’s procedures. We help HR executives transform their departments into major strategic drivers!
Our consultants listen to your needs, expectations, and desired learning outcomes. We do the rest! Designing learning and development offerings that meet your specific needs, that are tailored to your organization, and that drive results is what we do.
