Workplace Training for Executives & Business Owners
Helping Your Business Grow Thoughtfully
The importance of good managers and sound policies guiding your day-to-day
business operations cannot be overstated. Study after study and our own
experiences have shown us that a good management team and a positive workplace
culture yields happier employees, increased productivity, fewer employment-related
claims, and a more successful, profitable business.
Management training is often overlooked, but must be an integral part of
your business’ strategic plan. Your organization may not feel the
immediate pain of ignoring training and culture development, but long-term
disregard can lead to catastrophic results. Just read the news: cautionary
tales of this particular problem abound. Training can often help head
off and eliminate painful, costly, and distracting employment-related
claims which can sour your business no matter how successful it's been.
Why We’re Different
We don’t provide your standard HR trainings. Our seminars are led
by seasoned attorneys who have litigated and tried cases which form the
basis for our courses. Our work with both employees and employers helps
us understand the nuances of the myriad of claims which arise in the course
of employment and business relationships. We have seen, first-hand, how
ineffective policies and untrained managers can have a deleterious impact
on your business - leading to unnecessary liability for avoidable claims.
Armed with this valuable insight, we help empower your managers with strategies
to effect your policies in a positive, inclusive manner. Through a thoughtful
pre-training process, we strive to understand your team dynamics so we
can best poise your team to avoid common pitfalls and implement strategies
for success. Whether your organization is a recent start-up or a decades
old operation, we can help equip your managers with the tools needed to
thrive and scale. We offer custom-tailored training services to fit your
business’ needs both on and off site. Our trainings can be utilized
