Course Descriptions & Outlines

Our courses are developed using an applied, experiential learning model which means you will learn practical, hands-on skills and perspectives you can use immediately.

We offer courses in leadership, training, facilitation, leading change, motivating teams and leading projects – you have a wide variety to choose from in order to best meet your needs.

Courses vary in length from one to three days, and you can take individual courses at your own pace to fit your schedule and budget. There is no application process – you may register for courses as you choose, so long as you meet any prerequisite requirement.
