How Is This Performance Workshop Different?

It's About Value

You get hands-on practical solutions to implement right away. We provide best practices that are time-tested and proven. These are not just great ideas. They work. We also don't just talk about them. We provide you with the concepts and then apply adult learning theory to make sure you get the opportunity to practice what you learn. From there, you are sure to have the tools to not only know what you've learned but to have the ability to implement the new tools when you get back to work the next day.

"I will send everyone on my team..."

"When I attended the first workshop by Dr. Wade, I wondered how someone could promise so much - especially for the price. I quickly realized that his mastery as a consultant, coach, HR executive, professor, and leadership expert combined to deliver an experience, not just another training event. I left with new abilities, a strategy to implement, and momentum to get it done. I will send everyone on my team to the next event."

-Andrew, VP Operations

"I saw results the very next day"

"I decided to set aside my skepticism and implement the game plan I set during Dr. Wade's training session. I applied just one tool we had covered, applied it to one area of my business, and said 'what the heck?' I started with simply clarifying expectations and delivering feedback using the model we practiced. It worked. All I can say is that it worked. Employees responded well, engaged in conversation, and made changes. It changed everything."

-Stacie, Finance Director

So...Why the Value Pricing if You Offer So Much?

The first question we get when we roll out a new program is - "How do you offer a program like this at such a low price? It's worth at least 10x that amount!" We know, and we will eventually get there. However, even though we have taught performance for many years, this is the first time we have packaged it this way. 

We are hoping to gain your feedback. exchange for your feedback, we are offering this at an introductory price. By offering this at a price that basically covers our costs, we can gain your insights to help us improve the course for the future.  

As with any course, we know you'll get the value you expect. If not, we'll make it right. However, we are confident you will gain new insights, see immediate results, and get the gains in profits and performance you expect.
