Improving Organization’s People through specialized Training, coursework, and Seminars
What do all the best and most profitable companies in the world have in common? They have great teams. Even if every other business function in your company is perfect, it will be worthless if your company’s employees are not operating at their best. Many leaders know this, and the wisest continually invest in further training for their teams. With so many training firms out there offering a wide variety courses, we focus on a niche group of courses and seminars that develop both hard and soft skills to help teams operate more efficiently on both the sales floor and the c-suite.
Our instructor’s have years of experience teaching in both a university setting as well as corporate environments. Their teaching style is distinctive blend of lectures, discussions and case studies, using examples drawn from personal experience of the instructor and other students. This ensures students are both engaged and entertained, and the course material is more easily retained and put to use the moment they step outside the classroom.
Our training models are simple and though the subject material is always the same, each course can be structured to suit your unique goals, requirements, and time constraints. Please get in touch to discuss your needs in more detail.

Making complex decisions is incredibly difficult, especially when the risk is high and substantial amounts of capital is on the line.

Strategic Planning and Organization
Strategic planning is not only for military leaders, c-suite executives, and project managers. Employees at any level of a corporation can benefit from strategic planning training. This course will instill strategic planning and organization methodologies that enable students to anticipate outcomes, create timely & effective backup plans, and critical thinking skills to adapt to rapidly changing variables once a plan is in action.

Fortunately this is a subject that can be taught and is applicable to many situations throughout an organization. In this course, we outline some common and not so common problem solving methodologies to help students overcome some of the most complex and some of the most simple problems.

There are many self-proclaimed “experts” in the area of negotiation, and university’s often dedicate entire semesters to teaching on the subject. However, the subject of negotiation does not need to be so complicated as it’s made out to be. This highly interactive course gets back to the basics by teaching students how to achieve optimal outcomes by breaking down multiple negotiation situations and strategies. Students will have both the mindset and tools needed to prepare their negotiation strategy before the actual meeting, so that the discomfort, guess work, and error is taken out of the equation.

Presentations are an incredibly significant part of conducting business. Whether used to create a pitch book to raise capital, drafting a research presentation summarizing a detailed analysis, proposing an M&A strategy, and everything else in between, presentations are never one-size-fits-all. This course will cover presentation best practices and the different types of presentations to cover a wide variety of uses throughout all levels of an organization regardless of industry. Upon completion, students will be better equipped to understand their audience and tailor their presentations to reach their audience more effectively.

“Continual Improvement” is a popular phrase being thrown around startups and well-established corporations these days, and that is because leaders know that in order to remain competitive, they must always be innovating their products, services, and processes. This course is designed to introduce “Continual Improvement” throughout all levels of a team as both a methodology and a mindset, with the end goal of minimizing the fear of change and helping the organization as a whole become more competitive and profitable.
