Talent Development Programs:






Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

Center for Work Life research has found that up to 58% of performance on the job is due to skills like self-awareness, managing one’s emotions, picking up on social cues, and building effective working relationships-all of which are key components of emotional intelligence. Read More


Employee Selection

Research shows that the cost of turn-over for an executive level position is at least 150% of the yearly salary of the position in question.  Furthermore, the average tenure of an executive, especially within the c-suite is less than 3 years.  So why is it that year after year, and hire after hire, organizations use the three typical ways to screen candidates?

Turnover Analysis

High employee turnover hurts a company’s bottom line. Reports indicate that it costs close to twice an employee’s salary to find and train a replacement. And because of the damage it causes to morale among remaining employees, the costs just add up from there.  Read More

Team Training

Effective Work Teams:

Top performing teams have a clear direction and a common understanding of their roles and values, which is often attained through Executive Team Development. They share the right composition, strong relationships with stakeholders outside the team, the trust and respect of their colleagues, the ability to review their own performance and are able to continuously learn and be open to improvement.  Read More

Workforce Training:

How important is it for your sales force to be able to connect to your clients?  How detrimental is it for your CPA, financial advisor, or attorney team to be able to build an emotional connection with your clients?  Although many believe decisions are made with our intellectual brain, it is the emotional brain that in fact makes a decision of whether you would do business with your counter-part.  Read More

Team Building:

Research shows that teams work at their highest innovation and productivity when they are provided the atmosphere to overcome challenges together and celebrate that victory in “Peace time.”  Read More
