Business and leadership offerings

Administrative skills

For many organizations, skilled and well-rounded administrative professionals are essential to smooth operations. Professional development of administrative staff can significantly improve retention and reduce the amount of time on-boarding new staff. 

We offer a series of short professional development courses designed specifically for admin staff, which will build skills, improve job performance and ultimately grow job satisfaction. These seminars will be of interest to administrative staff in all industries in a variety of positions including administrative officers, office clerks and receptionists.

Leadership, management and supervisory

Effective managers are indispensable to successful organizations. Research suggests that people do not leave organizations; they leave managers. This can mean substantial costs to an organization for recruitment, engagement and subsequent retention, as well as indirect costs associated with the loss of corporate intelligence and the impact on morale.

We can help develop your employees - whether they are aspiring, new or current supervisors or managers.
