From time to time a training course is made available to the public on an open-enrollment basis. The minimum and maximum size of each class will vary depending on the course, the location, the target audience, and economic factors. Public courses are often the delivery method of choice for individuals or for organizations that wish to register only a few participants. If you are interested in a certain course and it is not currently being offered on an open-enrollment basis, contact us and we will let you know where and when the course will be scheduled.
For organizations that have five or more individuals who are interested in a certain training course, the on-site option is often the most cost-effective alternative. In this case the instructor (or instructors) would come to the client's location and conduct the seminar at a facility that is provided by the client. This option offers several possible benefits: 1) customization of the content and/or course structure, 2) closed sessions so that company-specific issues can be discussed candidly, 3) elimination of out-of-town travel time and travel costs for the participants. As an added benefit a course can be scheduled on-demand, rather than waiting for it to be offered in an open-enrollment format.
This consists of one-on-one coaching with an individual contributor, manager, or executive and one of our subject matter experts. There is considerable latitude in the issues that may be discussed, but the initial focus will often deal with one or more topics related to a particular seminar. Private coaching may be conducted over the phone or by a face-to-face meeting, either at our facility in Plano, TX or at the client's facility. It may consist of a single advisory session to address a personal development need or work-related problem, or it may consist of multiple sessions to deal with a complex set of issues.
This is essentially a small-group training session for no more than four individuals. Depending on the arrangements made in advance, the individuals may be part of a work team from the same company or organization or they may come from two or more non-competing organizations. Semi-private coaching is typically conducted face-to-face, either at our facility in Plano, TX or at a client-provided facility.
These are 1 to 3 hour briefings for a single executive or senior management team. An executive briefing typically consists of a high-level overview related to a certain training program, but with additional details on 1) the benefits and costs of the program to the organization, 2) the executives' role in supporting the roll-out of the program, 3) the challenges involved, if any, and 4) how to gauge improvements resulting from the training.
This option is available to associations, professional societies, universities, distributors, franchisers, and other member organizations. The hosting organization may use the event to raise funds and/or to make cutting-edge training available to its members, as a membership benefit. Enrollment may be restricted to the hosting organization's members or it may be open to outside participants as well at a "non-member" rate. For more information on this option, click here.
