Program Design is a Growing Focus of Our Work
For the past decade or so, our work in Program Design has taken a more and more prominment role. We use experience in Marketing, Organization and Personal/Professional Development to design programs that have a compelling impact for clients.
Through Program Design we have been able to put together systematic approaches to problem solving. The programs are geared to attract resources and channel them in ways that open doors to new opportunities.
Program Design has been an important part of our work with Les Brown in recent times. This includes programs for Speaker Training and Professional Empowerment, as well as projects for innovators and business owners.
We combine our Program Design role with our Transformative Workshop Training to create specific, observable results.
Insight: Observations and Tips for Success
Know the Why of Your Decisions!
Often, when we make decisions, we are acting withouit an honest sense of what might be driving that decision. Who are we as decision makers?
It's good to know if the person you are hiring or partnering with reflects your priorities. Are you adding to your capacity, or just adding?
You have to know yourself pretty well to know, in a real way, what's driving your decision. It takes internal work to get a good handle on it.
Decision making defines us, more than we might like to admit. Sometimes ego gets in the way, and more often than not, we don't really know.
The better we know ourselves, strenghts and weaknesses, the better we can know the right moves for the road ahead. Ignorance hurts.
Knowing how you weigh options helps others help you. Pay close attention to how you decide, not just what you decide! It really matters.
