Is Your Team Onboard and Paddling?
This Polynesian war canoe is just like your business. Like these warriors, you want to build the best team for your "business canoe", but:

  • There is never enough time for classroom training,
  • Your best performers skip coaching and mentoring to maintain status,
  • The mobile workforce walks off with tribal knowledge,
  • New products & procedures make training obsolete, sometimes overnight!
And, do you really know if that new employee is qualified to represent your brand?

How can you turn these realities into advantages?

Addressing this Issue

Our presenters, Ed Beale and Bill Parrywill show you how to adapt a robust performance system (in use throughout the U.S. military) to quickly and confidently qualify your new performers.

You will learn how to integrate three learning domains (fundamentals, systems and activities) with coaching and mentoring, while building positive corporate culture.

Forget the red and yellow lines. This system will get you to the green!


You will learn a measurable, repeatable and scalable process to amplify the knowledge of your company's Masters, and shorten time to qualification for all your new Apprentices.  We will uncover theory, demonstrate the process, provide examples of the system in use, and run a short workshop to extract new value from your learning ecosystem.

Edward K. Beale and William J. Parry each have over 25 years experience with leadership, process, and technical training development and delivery. This experience was gained during work in and with military, public and private sector organizations, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Monster Cable, Lucent Technologies, Booz | Allen | Hamilton, AVAD Inc., and G.P. Strategies Corporation.
