    Three of the most essential components of any organization's success are ones that cannot be easily quantified on a balance sheet:  Communication, Knowledge and Relationships.

    For nearly 20 years, James has provided expert training in "Essential Skills."  Often referred to as "Soft Skills," these skills are essential to every organization's vision, mission, execution and results.  There is nothing "soft" about failing to achieve your goals because your people may be deficient in these skills.

    These are some of the Essential Skills courses James offers:

    • Effective Communication Skills
    • Presenting with Power, Clarity and Poise
    • How to Create High-Functioning Teams
    • Management Skills for the New Millennium
    • How to Master the Six-Ringed Stress Circus
    • Leadership in the 21st Century
    • How to Manage Time, Energy & Success


    These are not the only classes James can teach - they're just the most relevant in today's ever-changing business climate.

    All classes can be customized to meet your learning objectives and minimize impact on productivity.  

    Our programs feature instruction, real-world examples, discussion and (where practical) experiential application.  In other words, we teach, discuss and do.  

    James also encourages follow-up coaching to help students embody new information and create better habits.
