Learning and Leadership Development Programs

Managers and supervisors are encouraged to use Learning and Leadership Development staff to improve the effectiveness of their department.

We can facilitate a retreat to start the year, help improve team trust and communication, or assist with organizational change initiatives. We can also help individual employees with any employee relations question or problem. Conflict mediation is also available.

One-On-One Coaching Sessions

Whether you are struggling with a colleague, boss or subordinate, thinking about your next career move, a situation you’re not sure how to resolve, or anything else affecting you on the job, this is your opportunity to confidentially work with a coach and gain a better understanding of what is really at play. Each 45 minute session will give you the opportunity to truly be heard, and potentially find the insight you need.  Please come prepared and ready to discuss the details of your situation, thoughts you’ve considered and ideas you have about it, or have already tried.
