What Makes Us Different
We've found that despite the best of intentions, most change efforts
and trainings fall short because the learning is isolated, theoretical, and thus easily
forgotten. Compared to most off-the-shelf seminars, our focus is on applying
the skills immediately -- between sessions, once the program is completed, and from then
We provide tools and technology to make the learnings take hold
in their everyday repertoire. A common complaint about other programs has been "I
barely use what I learned from that other workshop -- but heres the notebook on the
shelf to prove it actually happened."
By contrast, our programs emphasize application and integration of the
skills in three ways:
- We accommodate individual learning styles to build on each person's
strengths. When participant's classroom experiences match how they naturally think and
learn, long-lasting, breakthrough behavior change often results.
- Peer coaching and mentoring helps hold the focus on priorities.
- Visual reminders, tracking tools, and technology suited to your unique
culture for systematic practice and continuous improvement.
Curriculum and Model
Unlike other total quality training and consulting services, our work is
based on the systematic study and application of human excellence. Much of our work
is based on the field of NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP), and our consulting and
training staff bring rich NLP experience to this work. This practical approach, based on
extensive research and application, captures what other, successful people and
organizations do to consistently produce results, then provides "just-in-time"
skill-building opportunities for participants. See the following course descriptions and
overviews for details of our approach to:
Workplace Conflict Resolution
Team Communication Skills
Leading Change Efforts
Group Presentation and
Sales and Persuasion Skills
Because we bring with us a tremendous respect for people's uniqueness,
most participants feel comfortable exploring, risking, and discovering how to be more
effective. A non-threatening and fun learning experience leads to frequent
"AHA!'s" for participants, providing substantial return on investment.
To leverage and integrate classroom learning, we combine between-session
"field study" with structured practice sessions. Skill mastery builds a positive
spiral as participants increase their passion for continuous improvement.
