Over the years, CWS has enjoyed serving our clients by developing and customizing strategic training programs to suit any business need. After all, training is proven to strengthen skills, and our clients count on development programs to help increase productivity and attitudes.

To address growing training needs, our team has developed specific curricula and content that includes some exciting new modules

In addition, CWS is proud to announce the launch of our new Workforce Development Series of workshops targeting professional growth, personal transformation and high-value skill development for work and life. This curriculum is designed to promote best practices in leadership, management and strategy, and to make training available to individuals and teams who may not have sponsorship at a corporate level.

New courses introduced in 2018 include:

  • CWS Strategic Workforce Planning, focusing on fundamental strategies that influence the planning process
  • CWS Leadership Primer, to identify leadership principles of emotional intelligence, inclusivity, cultural awareness and accountability
  • CWS Astrolabe – A Personal Purpose Workshop, synthesizes business models with psychological understanding to help participants focus development and build accountability

The series is available to private clients, and individuals can take part in the public courses offered in 2018 and 2019. Learn more about the Workforce Development Series.

Why Is Certified Coaching in Demand?

Life and work can get pretty complex as we seek adventure at home and at the office. Good talent is harder to find, engage and retain, and communication challenges are at an all-time high, with four generations attempting to share (and not share) the workspace.

Given the current landscape, business owners are reaching out to certified coaches more than ever to help their teams develop professionally, balance their lives and prioritize for future success. Business owners who want to be strategic place a proactive focus on developing high-potential leaders – simply because it works.

A global PWC study showed that for business owners, the
mean return on investment in coaching was 7X.
For those being coached, it was even higher!

Certified coaching through Creative Workforce Solutions is an investment in maximizing your talent's potential. Through one-on-one coaching, team development exercises, mentoring and customized strategic training efforts, high-potential and even problematic employees gain self-awareness and a desire to grow and contribute.

Rather than making assumptions, a certified coach will focus on the what the individual wants and needs to effect change. It’s always a safe bet to invest in your people – even better when the payoff can be 700% !

Certified coach Carrie Plantamura conducts all engagements according to the standards set by the International Coach Federation. Tell us about your challenges and we can talk about how coaching might help. Reach out to Carrie Plantamura, ECPC, today.
