Their interactive and personal approach to accelerate skills, in communication and definitive leadership has been both inspirational to many who have been involved in the training and invaluable to the Corporation as well.

Barking Dogs is a workshop focused on helping Leaders at all levels “Major on the Majors” and not get caught up in “Majoring on the Minors”.  In other words, it is designed to help leaders identify and learn how to stay focused on their key priorities.  Through a variety of tools and techniques, Barking Dogs helps them avoid getting caught up in the multitude of distractions and low priority items that they often unwittingly allow to hijack their finite time and precious focus.

As Winston Churchill says, “You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”


Leadership Laboratory is an experiential workshop focused on honing leadership skills.  It is designed to help participants identify, through experience, where they need to adapt their leadership skills for greater effectiveness.  By the end of the program, participants will have learned and, more importantly, practiced leadership skills that they will be able to apply confidently and immediately.


Feedback for Impact provides feedback tools that enable your people to both give and receive feedback  effectively.  This means the ability to create ease, while either providing feedback that has the intended impact or receiving feedback in a manner that allows the recipient greatest gain from that feedback.


Tu Casa Mi Casa teaches the skills necessary to influence, or get to solutions with others, from inside of the other party’s frame of reference.  It focuses on getting better results with, and through, others, doing so in shorter time spans, and leaving others feeling valued in the process.

What’s Possible? enables people to see they are capable of accomplishing results they think are beyond their capability, & cultivates the mindset to do so.  It's a tremendous tool to build buy-in for stretch goals & change endeavors.  What’s Possible? can also be used as a powerful catalyst to build a ‘Culture of Innovation’.

"I had the pleasure of bringing Mitch in to work with our sales leaders to help take what felt like a stale topic (coaching) and share insights that sounded new and relevant.  Mitch's calm yet passionate demeanor had a very positive effect on our sales leaders and the feedback after the session was excellent, specifically relating to the activities that Mitch led and his motivating discussions. 

I would highly recommend Mitch for any team that needs to hear a message that may be one they have heard many times before, or may just be difficult to hear.  He was very effective in his approach to preparing for the session and the delivery itself.

An excellent partner!"
