Facilitated meetings allow for candid discussions, full team participation, and add significant value. Professional facilitation allows your team to discuss opportunities and obstacles with an open mind while driving for results.

Topical, interactive trainings with current, relevant approaches. Give your leaders the knowledge to work efficiently and effectively.
Whether you’re experiencing growing pains or having to catch-up, training your leaders on the key topics below will pay dividends to an organization.
We’re not lawyers and we’re never dispensing specific legal advice. Our trainings provide information, best practices, and strategies from an HR practitioner’s standpoint. Although we have extensive experience navigating employment laws and use that experience when training, always consult an employment attorney for legal advice related to your specific situation. If you don’t have an attorney, we’d be happy to refer you to a top-tier employment attorney in your state.
Skills-oriented training programs for leaders include:
Getting the best from your team takes effort and mentoring. Push too hard and you may end-up losing the employee, while pushing too softly can slow development and waste time. Learn how to coach and inspire employees, establishing a culture that thrives on performance.
The number one dissatisfier for performing employees is that they have to work with poor performers. Manage problem performers with skill and confidence—this helps the under-performing employee, the rest of the team that’s watching how you treat the under-performer, and prevents potential litigation.
Keeping high-potential employees engaged and growing is key to maintaining your bench strength. If high-potential employees don’t feel challenged and developed, they’ll look for employment elsewhere. Learn how to develop and retain your top performers. If you don’t their next employer will.
There’s never enough time. Period. Learning to make the most of your time involves innovative organization strategies, learning how and when to delegate, and mastering the art of following-up. If you’re drowning with tasks, let me show you some strategies that work!
Every leadership job relies on solid communication. Honing communication skills is critical for a leader to succeed and grow. Whether you’ve been told that communication is a weakness for you, or if you’re wanting to build your technique so communication never disrupts your career, this training is critical!
Investigating potential misconduct can feed the rumor mill and quickly divide the workplace. Learn the best practices for investigating sensitive issues swiftly, appropriately, and in a way that protects your culture.
Do you know who your problem employees are? So do their peers. Although addressing employee performance and conduct issues is fundamental to maintaining an efficient, safe workplace, it’s also one of the most difficult aspects of a leader’s job. Additionally, if this isn’t done skillfully, the company risks a lawsuit, a social media smear campaign, and an eye-popping settlement. Yikes!
The days of simple videos and basic messaging regarding sexual harassment are over. The definition and the warning signs of sexual harassment have evolved over the last 24 months, and the settlements for employers who mismanage their obligations continue to grow. Let us train your leaders in current best practices for preventing, detecting, and addressing sexual harassment.
The standards for harassment and discrimination have evolved in recent years. What used to be basic information is now outdated. Some of the old techniques aimed at addressing these two workplace issues are now unlawful. Update your team’s understanding of preventing, detecting, and addressing harassment and discrimination. This protects your company and fosters a respectful, efficient culture.
The art of remaining “issue-free” has changed as the National Labor Relations Board has updated its expectations of employers. We’ll review the guidelines for employer conduct as well as discuss current best practices utilized by several large companies to protect morale and maintain an issue-free workplace.
