How We Train People

Our goal has always been education first. We have always place the learning process and participant mastery of the material as the goal. We are extremely successful doing this by:

Building Confidence

All people, no matter how successful or experienced, usually have some angst about learning a new topic or taking a more advanced class. We minimize people’s fears through unique techniques honed by years of classroom experience. Carefully constructed exercises create “little victories” before tackling more difficult assignments. We encourage participants to make mistakes in class so they can learn by doing.

Encouraging Competence

A major strength of our classes are excellent exercises. Completing these exercises assures a thorough understanding of the material, and the ability to use it at your productively at your company.

Creating Challenge

There is a fine line between challenging people and breaking their spirits. We challenge people to that point… and let them move up to the next level when they are ready.
