Packages

Our educational programs come in all shapes and sizes. There are seven factors that affect pricing: (1) the total number of training sessions and segments (total training time), (2) on-site versus online seminars, (3) the amount of development or modification of curricula, (4) the number of people who will need support, (5) advance training and orientation of facilitators or other trainers, (6) the amount of pre or post training, coaching or other pedagogical support, and (7) the extent of planning and evaluation.

We’ll work with you to develop the right mix for your organization. Feel free to contact us to set up a free consultation. You might also want to look over some training scenarios we’ve prepared that include different mixes of the seven factors, in order to help you with your budgeting.

Are you interested in hiring us to speak at your event, or privately to your staff or members, but you’re not sure where to start? Here are some options:

Contact us to schedule a call to discuss your training needs.
    Not sure what you need? Contact us and we will schedule a call with you to discuss your situation and the options we can offer.

You can also contact us to…

  • …see if we’re available on the day of your event (if it’s already scheduled).
  • …tell us more about your event, so we can discuss whether we would be a good fit. (What is the topic and who is your audience?)
  • …find out what a strategic survey might do for your event. Pre- and post-event surveys are often just opinion polls, but we can help you make them effective tools for supporting learning and change.
     

How You Can Assess Interest

  • Circulate our catalog to your staff or members to determine interest. If you’re not sure that our material will be of interest to your participants, try circulating our catalog to them and ask for feedback.
  • Include our topics in a poll of your potential event participants. Take this additional step past circulating the catalog, and poll them about our “Areas of Interest” or select some specific topics and/or seminar titles from our catalog.
