Our Programs are Different

The last thing your people need is more information. Instead, they need help cutting through all the noise to identify what will actually work for them - and most importantly, they need help turning good ideas into lasting practice. That is our one and only focus: sustained improvement.


Before teaching anything, we ask ourselves: Could a manager remember this and use it in her day-to-day? As a result, everything we teach can be applied the same day.


The hardest goal for any training program is to create lasting improvement. That’s why we focus most of our effort there by applying the science of habits to the design of our programs.


We focus on technology and tactics - and mindsets. Incompatible beliefs keep people from doing the practices they know they should. We uncover and uproot those mindsets.


Our programs are designed for the huge swath of the workforce, known as knowledge/information workers and managers. We focus on the core skills that underpin millions of worker’s performance.
