Yes! Persimmon realizes not every organization is the same. That is why we will work with you to build custom courses that address your unique needs with our content modules.
Our leadership courses are designed for current and aspiring leaders, supervisor through director level, who are seeking to develop and enhance their leadership skills.
How to Navigate High-Impact, High-Effort Stakeholders
No matter what kind of work you do, relationships with people are essential to doing it. Unfortunately, we rarely get to choose who we work with—and it’s often the case that our most important stakeholders are also difficult to work with.
How to Resist the "Circle of Habit" and Generate Breakthroughs for Your Team
Thinking strategically is critical for moving organizations forward, and yet 96% of leaders report they are too busy reacting to day-to-day management issues to think strategically (HBR). Designed and facilitated by seasoned business leaders, this course will teach you to resist the pull of your routines so you can ask the right questions, spark innovation, navigate uncertainty, and take advantage of strategic opportunities.
Building Your Roadmap for Success
Whether you're a high-potential professional on your way up the corporate ladder or a current leader, continuing your personal development is essential to your success. Unfortunately, without the necessary guidance or tools, it can be difficult to know where to begin. This course will empower you with the same essential tools and techniques our experienced executive coaches use for their own personal development.

"Amazingly enough, my favorite part was the ability to have 1:1 chats about certain topics or ideas that were shared in class with other people in the session using the chat feature in Zoom. I learned some things about myself, and how I'm perceived, and shared similar feedback with others. Well done all around."
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.
The Persimmon Group uses Zoom for all learning events, with multiple security protocols in place to ensure a safe and private event. Zoom allows you to participate on the web (without downloading additional software) if desired.
