  •  Review of key points of TM1

  • Identify personal strengths and the areas that could be improved.
  • Discuss individual action plans for personal growth

Graduating participants will receive a ‘diploma’. In some companies, members choose a Class Leaders to organize future sharing events and maintain on-going communications.

 The TRANSITIONS series of seminars provide consistent skill-building in a highly-interactive classroom environment. Each program in the series is directed to a different level of audience: the core competencies in management, communication, recognition, and motivation remain the same.

Let your staff know they are valued.

 Enhance their job satisfaction. Improve internal communications. Provide managers with  the  tools to express their ideas, gain the support of others, and receive the recognition they deserve.

  • Develop a Forum to identify issues, address concerns and learn how others have survived -and succeed-in a changing environment.
  • Support innovation by recognizing the culture of risk, supporting pride and confidence to lead and address business objectives with the agility to respond to flexible goals.


 A key element of this program is the use of external  thought-leaders and consultants to present inspiring case studies. Each  speaker will present approaches from advanced education in management and behavioral sciences to offer practical management skills-based support.

Self-Coaching: The desired outcome of the development effort is to enable each ‘class’ to become an on-going support network for members. Each group will learn to provide self-coaching. In addition, graduates of TM will be selected and invited to provide on-going support to a specific ‘class’ following the completion of the seminars.
