Our Services

Professional Development

We provide tailored training and coaching that focuses on leadership development and performance improvement. Our combined experience in Human Resources with both small and global companies enables us to provide effective results-driven professional development services.


For those companies who want to develop in-house expertise, we have a train-the-trainer model, tailored to meet the needs of the organization, where we train select employees to teach/train others in the company. This allows the organization to leverage, while further developing, its talent, and enables the internal spread of consistent processes. Management also saves money in the long run by not being dependent on outside contractors.




Developing Self-Confidence

Using tailored solutions, we work with individuals and groups to help them rise ‘Above the Crowd’ by overcoming their fears of speaking and/or presenting to groups, whether it is to deliver a message, sell a proposal to upper management, influence a group, or ace an interview to get to the next level. We also work with students so they are prepared for successful graduate school interviews.


We have expertise in developing skills and confidence in presenters to enable them to perform effective in-house presentations, stand-up public speaking, and on-line presentations including interviewing. In addition, we have expertise in training presenters on how to create engaging and easy to follow PowerPoint slides that enhance, rather than detract from, the speaker’s message.

Developing Effective Teams

Maximizing the effectiveness of teams is one of the most impactful methods for improving productivity and organizational performance. We enable teams to reach higher levels of performance by first identifying the specific needs of the team and then create a finely tuned approach to meet those needs. Our methods focus on goal alignment, role clarification, communication skills, conflict resolution for building trust & effective working relationships, and problem solving.


In addition to teams becoming a more effective after we work with them, the individuals on the team walk away with enhanced leadership skills which easily translate to many of the other facets of their roles.
