that will benefit your people
and your bottom line.
According to a recent survey, 86% of employees say that job training is important to them—and nearly three out of every four (74%) are even willing
to learn things outside of work hours to improve. And this isn’t just true of new employees. Tenured staff are also interested in growing, developing new skills, and building on existing ones.
Yet, no matter how much they value training, and no matter how significant the skills you’re teaching or information you’re sharing, if your employee workshop or training sessions aren’t engaging, it won’t matter. We understand that, and that’s why each one of our sessions has been tested and refined over the years, so that it’s not just what people need to learn, it’s presented in a way that makes it accessible and motivating, even inspiring, and hopefully even fun. (Check out some of our workshops below.)
We offer workshops and staff training both on site and online, whatever works best for your company or organization. And, whether they’re engaging in a session from a table in a conference room or accessing one of our sessions from a desk in their home, what participants will consistently find is appreciation and respect for their individuality. We aren’t trying to mold your people into some version of us…or of their bosses or supervisors…or of some unattainable ideal. We are teaching them how to be their best selves in the workplace, a valuable and unique member of the team.
Not surprisingly, training like this can make a big difference in an employee’s overall job satisfaction, self-confidence and in how well they perform. What may surprise you is the fact that it’s also good for companies and organizations…those with strong training programs have been shown to have a 24% higher profit margin.

WORKSHOPS DESIGNED TO
WORK FOR YOU
Every workshop we deliver is customized for the specific audience and learning goals. A few of our most popular workshops are:
Elevate Your Impact: This workshop is for individuals at all experience levels who want to feel more confident, authentic and management/client ready so they can represent their company well and make the most of every professional opportunity.
Executive Presence: This workshop is for new managers and high performers moving up a management track, who want to communicate with impact and more consistently demonstrate professionalism, poise and leadership with every interaction.
The Workshops and Training Sessions in our
Elevate Your Impact and Executive Presence courses
include topics Like:
HAVE THEM AT HELLO. Your introduction is the first, and often most lasting impression clients will have. We can give your team strategies for making sure their introductions and first impressions win clients over from the start.
OWN YOUR BODY LANGUAGE. Studies show that as much as 50-90% of communication is non-verbal. With our strategies, your team can become more aware of what their bodies are saying, and hone their skills to project poise and confidence in every interaction.
SPEAK SO YOU'RE REALLY HEARD. Learn to communicate clearly. We’re all too busy to read between the lines. With our support, your employees can make sure clients and colleagues hear what they really want them to hear. Because more clarity equals fewer complications. And more impact.
MEET LIKE A CHAMP. We know that meetings can often feel like a necessary evil—they drain our time, energy, and stop us from actually getting things done. In our trainings, your team can learn to lead and participate in meetings that are efficient, effective, and move your business forward.
TURN ACQUAINTANCES INTO CONNECTIONS. We know that people with people skills are the people who run the world. We can teach your team how to turn interactions into opportunities, to build a network, and forge trusted connections—connections that could help your business on the path to success.
LEAVE NOTHING ON THE TABLE BUT THE NAPKIN. Client dinners, fundraising events, and formal gatherings can cause anxiety and make or break a successful business deal. Your people can learn great table manners and entertaining skills—regardless of the setting--that will help them, and your company, make the most of every meal.
PUT YOUR BEST SELF OUT THERE. How you present yourself says a lot about you and can even impact your performance. We can teach your team how to make their appearance say what they want it to--to reinforce their personal brand and project confidence, poise, and skill. With our strategies, your staff can put their best selves forward and feel great too.
LET YOUR PERSONALITY TYPE WORK FOR YOU. Is it possible for both introverts and extroverts to shine at work? Absolutely. We can teach your staff, whatever their personality type, to learn to communicate effectively and have impact. We’ll provide strategies for both introverts and extroverts to help them successfully participate in everything from formal meetings to casual conversations and how to put their unique traits to work for them. No apologies necessary.
COMMAND THE ROOM. Confidence, public speaking skills, and executive presence can be taught. With our help, your emerging leaders can discover how to encourage and motivate their team and get the best out of the people who report to them.
