SLII® Experience

Many organizations struggle with developing their managers to be the best they can be. SLII teaches managers how to develop the skills and language to become situational leaders. When people get what they need when they need it, your organization will experience higher performance and work passion. The SLII Experience is a one- or two-day session with face to face and virtual modalities

SLII Concepts

SLII Concepts introduces you to the theory of SLII in an engaging and informative way. The new training design is fast-paced, content rich, and provides a meaningful overview of SLII concepts for general awareness or as an introduction to SLII ahead of a more extensive learning experience. SLII Concepts is designed to be used in a 3-4-hour format

Leading Virtually

Leaders today increasingly operate in an environment in which they rarely see the individuals they lead, and they struggle to use leadership skills required without face-to-face contact. With so many leaders managing team members working in different locations, there is an ever-increasing need for people who don’t see each other frequently to figure out how to work better together. Leading Virtually focuses on helping participants make the shift from leading face-to-face to leading remotely

Leading People Through Change

Change initiatives often fail because managers aren’t equipped to navigate them successfully. Our Leading People Through Change program teaches managers how to lead successful change efforts by understanding the predictable stages of concern and addressing each effectively

Leading Teams Virtually

Leaders increasingly operate in an environment in which they rarely see the teams they lead, and they struggle to use the leadership skills required without face-to-face contact to keep teams on track and performing well. With so many leaders managing teams who are dispersed in different locations, there is an ever-increasing need for people who don’t see each other frequently to figure out how to work as a Team better together.


Performance at organizations is often stalled because employees don’t know how to ask for what they need when they need it. Our Self Leadership program teaches individuals the mindset and skillset to proactively take the reins, achieve their goals, and accelerate their development

First Time Manager

Most new managers are promoted before they have the skills to be an effective manager. Our First-time Manager program teaches the mindset, core conversations, and communication skills needed to step into their new role equipped for success, so their direct reports are engaged and productive from the start

Team Leadership

Many teams often fail to accomplish their goals due to ineffective leadership. Our Team Leadership program teaches team leaders how to provide clarity, manage conflict, and build trust in order to successfully grow, breakthrough barriers, and sustain high-performance teams

Building Trust

Trust is at the heart of every relationship, and it’s especially critical in the workplace. When people don’t trust who they work with, or don’t trust their leader, morale suffers, and productivity is hindered. Our Building Trust program teaches employees at all levels how to build trust to increase engagement, creativity, and commitment to the organization

Our Legendary Service program provides a systematic approach to customer service that enables your workforce to consistently deliver ideal service that keeps customers coming back

Challenging Conversations covers all the most challenging, intense, and emotionally charged types of conversations.

These include speaking up without alienating the other person and being able to listen even if you are triggered by what you hear


The premise for this half-day listening program is that listening is a proactive and interactive involvement with another person’s ideas and feelings. It entails the use of specific verbal and nonverbal behaviors, which leaves both people with a fi rm sense that the words spoken were accurately communicated

Giving Feedback
