Training Programs

In addition to the many keynoters and entertainment we arrange through Seattle Bookings, we also organize and present system-wide training through Seattle Training & Consulting.

We offer programs by skilled professionals specially chosen for their backgrounds and expertise. We encourage professionals from diverse backgrounds to enter the field and actively involve them in our projects. We model positive working relationships and attempt to enhance intercultural communication within the changing workforce.

We help employees improve the effectiveness of their work through improved skills and motivation.  Our skill-based communication programs equip employees with competencies for addressing motivation, conflict, stress, diversity and change.

Our consultants are experts in the field of workforce training, needs assessment, organization systems and program design/delivery/evaluation. They function as facilitators for learning by relating new skills and concepts to the past experiences of the participants.  For all subject areas, we actively demonstrate the applicability of the new skills to specific job tasks. We are well acquainted with the principles of modern adult learning theory and provide a climate in which everyone feels respected and safe as they practice new techniques and strategies.  All participants are encouraged to be active and responsible for their learning.

All of our programs contain a balance of information, interactive activities, assessments, reflective thinking, individual & group discussion. Concepts are presented in a manner that allows the participants to experiment with them, experience their use, compare them to other concepts and to past experience, and make informed choices about how to use them. 

We will help to assess your organization's needs, design curriculum and suggest candidates for a wide range of topics. We only recommend trainers who have just the right combination of experience, knowledge and skill.
