Get Meaningful Results

Our 6 Pillars for Learning provide the basis for training that translates into meaningful results for you and your organization.


We emphasize essential, practical skills that allow for further growth AND immediate quick wins. See and feel the difference right away.


Participants learn by doing, continually engaging in a variety of experiential exercises that promote maximum engagement and fluency, so the learning “sticks.”


Consistent, real-time feedback accelerates learning and ensures participants apply the skills correctly after leaving the class.


Intensive discussions on workplace challenges & opportunities make every program feel custom; in a program, our facilitators are also your consultants.


Participants leave our programs with skills they can apply to their day-to-day work, with the understanding and confidence necessary to re-teach the concepts within their teams.


We help you understand complex concepts in an accessible, relatable way. Whether it’s through deep discussion, practical case studies, multimedia or a pop culture reference (or two), our participants repeatedly say that they’ve learned deeply AND that the time has flown by!

Where are your classes taught?2021-07-23T12:49:49-05:00

What are the class maximum/minimum participant requirements?2021-07-23T12:50:11-05:00

The class minimum and maximum vary by course , depending on the ideal learning environment for the content. Typical class minimums range from 8 – 12 participants with course maximums averaging 20 – 25 participants.

In addition to our training programs, we deliver keynote and workshop programs through our speaking division, TPG Speakers, that could also be a good fit for your company-wide meeting.

Are your classes stand alone offerings or part of a program?2021-07-23T12:50:48-05:00

Both. Based on your business needs, we can provide learning for your employees through a stand-alone course or craft a program of courses to develop and build mastery of key competencies and skills for your teams.

How far in advance do we need to schedule?2021-07-23T12:51:08-05:00

This varies based upon course length, instructor availability, and whether any content needs to be tailored or developed. 6 – 12 weeks through is a good rule of thumb.

We are registered providers with the Project Management Institute, SHRM, and HRCI. The majority of our courses qualify to provide continuing education credits through all of these entities. In addition, many other certifications requiring continuing education have a conversion process that allows for these CEU’s to be translated for their certification requirements.

I like content from several different classes, can I combine them for a class unique to our needs?2021-07-23T12:51:43-05:00

Absolutely! We intentionally build our learning content modularly for just this reason. Much of the learning content from our courses can be quickly blended from to quickly create a tailored course customized to your needs. Once we understand your learning needs and objectives, our team can help to quickly craft a recommended course tailored to your needs.

Are your classes priced by participant or event?2021-07-23T12:52:00-05:00

Our private training courses are priced by event up to the maximum number of participants for a given course. We also offer public classes throughout the year for individual or small group registrations.

We know you’ll love our virtual learning experiences! Just like a physical classroom, you’ll see and speak to your instructor, participate in discussions and small group activities, and follow along in a writable PDF workbook so you can take notes and reference them later. Your instructor will also be available to you between sessions and after the course to answer questions, PLUS you’ll get access to electronic copies of all the documents we recommend you use to keep your projects on track
