"I had the most AMAZING year of action"

Career Development Programs for the Innovation Economy
in partnership with UMass Boston College of Management
You can too. Start here.

We hear it all the time…

Managers want to develop their employees, but don’t have time for all the personalized attention and constant feedback that their employees want.

Employees want to find more meaning and engagement in their work, but don’t know what to do or where to start.

Plus, with the rapid pace of change, it’s getting harder to keep up and find time to inspire, lead and grow successful teams. We can help.

We have action-based programs for the innovation economy.

We help supplement what companies are doing.  We teach the hard/soft skills for success today; making a manager’s career development time with their employees more effective, efficient (and even enjoyable). 

Let’s see the programs.

Want to inspire your staff? Close the gender gap faster? Want practical steps to be more focused and productive? We have 90-minute, half/full day interactive workshops on topics such as: “Innovating for Success”; “What’s Holding You Back in Business?” and “Career Planning in an Innovation Economy.”

In-person, kickoff workshop + 8-week online program + seaside retreat for women to get the confidence, business skills and action steps to succeed – in partnership with UMass Boston
