IN OUR CLIENTS' WORDS

"Patricia’s session is consistently one of the highest rated sessions in our program and one that the students all feel provides them valuable information they will use in their personal and professional lives. 

I highly recommend her services."

Rich Frey, Director Executive MBA Program University of Illinois

"I’ve had employees come to me or email me all day saying

how much they enjoyed the presentation today. They really got a lot out of it, and you held them captivated and entertained the whole time."

Practice Administrator from a large Medical Group

Patricia Cook & Associates began in

2003 and over the last 15 years

we’ve helped companies large and small

maximize the potential of their people.

WE FOCUS ON AUTHENTICITY.
ALWAYS.

        The good news: your employees don’t have to lose what makes them who they are in order to be “professional.”

 

We focus on helping them identify and grow their real strengths so they can be their truest selves. And because we know most people roll their eyes at the thought of taking a personal branding class or being told how to dress for success, we teach in a fun and engaging way that doesn’t feel like torture.

 

We promise.

 
 

85% OF JOB SUCCESS COMES FROM HAVING WELL-DEVELOPED

SOFT  SKILLS. 

Harvard University, Carnegie Foundation + Stanford Research Center

YOUR COMPANY IS ONLY
AS GOOD AS THE PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR YOU.

The world is dynamically changing and our workplaces and communication methods are more diverse than ever. That makes it harder and harder for your employees to know the “right thing” to say or do in person, on the phone, or online. But with our relevant and engaging trainings they can quickly learn how to navigate it all, and build better relationships with clients, and each other.

YOU WANT
YOUR EMPLOYEES
TO WANT TO
BE THERE.

A positive, respectful workplace is a place where people are fully engaged and truly want to come to work in the morning.

 

This doesn’t happen by accident.

 

We can work with your management team to create an environment that fosters respect, cooperation, and challenges each employee to be their absolute best.

 

And we can help you develop a company culture that’s consistent, and accurately reflects your values.
