We review the latest research and share our results in your proposal.

We are passionate about staying up-to-date on what works, which is why we will always share relevant research with you before you commit to a training. This helps you understand whether or not what we offer is a good fit for you. We will always connect you to additional resources that may be helpful.

You get precision training for your program based on an in-depth needs assessment.

We understand that taking time out of the workday to attend consultation and training sessions is resource-intense. Before developing a training, we will spend time consulting with you, then create a survey to understand the needs of your staff. We analyze themes and follow up with you to get a clear picture of what a successful training will look like.

Your staff receive an interactive, experiential training.

Training is about more than clicking through a slideshow and going through a workbook. All of our training sessions are 40% didactic, 60% experiential. Translation? We interact and engage with your staff throughout the course of training.

We believe that the best trainings are ones that start a conversation with your staff that continues well beyond the training. The result? Staff leave the training feeling refreshed, renewed, and confident about the work they do.
