Formal training and assessments are a good first level of training, but what about learning needs that are ongoing, and more subtle? For decades, companies have looked to mentoring programs to provide a second level of training.

How to Write in Plain English

The key is to understand and apply a logical process to everything you write. Make using this process a habit, and writing becomes a straightforward task. The end result meets the needs and goals of your audience.

Teaching People Skills to Millennials

The crux of people skills is “other orientation,” paying close attention to the signals of those with whom one is interacting, without getting distracted, and then responding to those signals effectively and appropriately.
