Invest in your people and grow your organizations

Leading experts in their fields provide timely and relevant local government specific training, creating a common language and philosophy throughout your entire organization.

With tightening budgets and increased workloads, the skills and expertise of your existing staff and managers are a valuable resource that must be developed through practical, multi-faceted training and mentoring. It’s important to create an environment where staff want to learn and have access to training that fits into the workday and can be done anywhere and at any time.

Current Styles of Training + Professional Development Aren’t Working…

  • It’s expensive – 1 or 2 days of in-person training can quickly swallow up your entire training budget
  • It doesn’t stick – With little to no follow-up and ongoing support, staff walk away with knowledge that they rarely put into practice
  • It’s time-consuming – Registering your department (or most of it) into full or half-day training courses means big losses for productivity and work plans
  • It’s inconsistent – And if only some of your staff attend the in-person training, it’ll be impossible to get the benefits of implementing what they’ve learned because there won’t be a same page for everyone to get on
