Frequenty Asked Questions

How much time will your online professional development courses take?

The more effort you put into each action item, the greater your impact will be. Our two comprehensive courses (Thought Leadership, Trusted Advisor), are definitely not a "sit back and be entertained" training: they are zero-fluff. They have been designed to minimize the amount of your time listening, in order to give you more time to actually execute. For our shorter courses, they are designed to illuminate a particular topic area, and are also zero fluff: time commitment depends on how deeply you wish to implement any of the frameworks and concepts that were introduced.
