Training de Jour

Helping you meet your training need gaps.
One day at a time.

Companies are comprised of people.  People who, sooner or later, need new skills, understanding, and knowledge. Today’s training strategies are as varied as the people they seek to train. 

Occasionally, your company will find that it has gaps in its training program, either in knowledge or bandwidth. 

When that happens, you need a way to quickly fill the gap so that your people don’t lose momentum.

Working with Training de Jour is simple

1.) We talk about your business requirements

All training begins with a thorough understanding of your learning needs and the situation surrounding them.  What do you need to see change through the use of training?

2.) Determine what type of training is needed

Different situations call for different types of training. We will work together to form a comprehensive training plan.

3.) Build, customize, or procure training materials

To meet your specific needs, the training will be altered or developed with you in mind.  We can also use existing courseware if it has already been developed.

4.) Deliver your training

Delivering the training is the most important step in the process.  We want your employees to leave our training sessions feeling empowered, confident and eager to put into action the concepts and skills they just learned.
