Professional Development Training from a former CFO
I offer professional development programs for individuals who want to advance in their careers, seek a promotion, find a new job, or make more of an impact at work. Workshops or individualized training programs focus on self-awareness, observation and empathy skills, video-analysis, and customized developmental exercises. Sessions can be combined with readings and tactical exercises, with a dash of humor. Length and cost of programs vary, depending on corporate or individual needs.
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU.
