Training Effectiveness – A Quality by Design Approach
In the role of a consultant, you have the benefit of seeing what works well across your client base and their shared common pain points. Because of this perspective, I’m often invited onto a project to provide guidance on best practices and practical advice on how to avoid the common pain points.

Practical Problem Solving for the Clinical Professional
Twenty-first century leaders are problem solvers. But how do successful leaders get from point A: Identifying a problem exists to point B: The problem is solved? The answer is: Very carefully, especially when they don’t have authority over budget. This highly interactive, practical course presents participants with best practice methodologies and key tools and techniques to help them take a problem from root cause analysis, to creating a cost-benefit analysis, to crafting a compelling story in an effort to obtain funding. Participants will have the opportunity to work on their own work-related problem during several activities. Participants will leave with a partially completed business case for their solution as well as the benefit of hearing first-hand accounts of practical solutions from other participants.
