"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.

QUICK START WORKSHOPS on topics such as: “I don’t have time for daily feedback”; “Innovating for Success”; “What’s Holding You Back in Business?” (90-minute, half day or full day interactive workshops)
