VALUE ADDED SERVICES
- Before/After. Your workshop trainers will work with selected participants, one-on-one, in advance of your program. First, they will apply the tools and techniques to a specific situation(s) you select. Second, they will develop a new After (e.g., presentation, story, and gateway question). And third, during your training program, they will compare and contrast the Before and After, step-by-step.
- Hands-on Coaching. Ira/Sylvia will work one-on-one or in teams, providing specific coaching and hands-on support after the program to reinforce the learning and help to accelerate the team’s leadership and communication effectiveness.
