Leadership and Organizational Development
Needs Assessment & Development Planning
Training without careful foresight can be costly and inefficient. Allow our organizational development experts to identify and assess specific needs and then develop a training plan that will ensure a positive, meaningful impact.
Executive & Leadership Development
Whether one-on-one or with a group, leadership consultations will identify issues and clarify priorities, resulting in the development and implementation of specific action plans to increase effectiveness and productivity.
Let us help guide your high-potential employees to fully develop their abilities. Our certified coaches will develop an action-oriented, future-focused and success driven process with proven return on investment.
Capitalize on strengths rather than focusing on deficiencies! Strengths-based development identifies and cultivates the existing competencies of individual team members to maximize success for the entire organization.

Legal and HR Training
Our programs are specifically designed for your management and supervisory staff, providing the necessary information to help insulate your organization from legal difficulties. Don’t see it here? Let us know what you’re looking for and we can bring a specific program to you!
Legal Issues for Supervisors
Familiarize your management team with employment law such as the ADA, FMLA, Title VII and the FLSA. Education in these areas can reduce liability preventing non-HR staff from innocently causing legal action.
Discipline and Discharge
Help your management team understand the basics of proper discipline, how to properly document discipline matters, what to consider prior to termination and how to handle a termination meeting.
Drug and Alcohol Use in the Work Place
Do your managers and supervisors understand your drug and alcohol policy? We’ll explain the interplay between your policy and the ADA, make sure they can identify “reasonable suspicion” and why a good drug and alcohol policy is important.
Union Avoidance/Awareness Training
Help your team understand why employees might be interested in a union, practical steps to remaining union free, the union organizing process and the “Do’s and Don’ts”
of a union organizing campaign.
Interviewing and Hiring
Every time your managers talk with an applicant, they may expose your organization to legal risk. Let us help! We’ll discuss the proper way to screen applicants, identify what subjects to avoid in an interview, discuss laws pertaining to background checks, how medical laws affect interviews and what questions not to ask.
We offer programs for both your management team and your general employee population. Employees will learn about harassment awareness, discrimination and prevention as well as review your organization’s specific policy. Managers will learn their responsibilities under the law. Programs offer multi-faceted instruction including lecture, group discussion and video.
