Why the Power Path Seminars ™ models are timely and unique

Product development, production, marketing, and sales all depend upon trust, good communication, cooperation and effective relationships to produce their magic of success.  No other body of knowledge that we know of so directly addresses both the fundamental causes behind time and revenue losses at the core of the corporate world and the tools to correct and remedy those causes.  Addressing loss of productivity effectively is at the top of the priority list for businesses, corporations, and organizations, large and small, around the world.

In addition to addressing the weaknesses of an organization, these models also provide for structures in which to identify and support the strengths of individuals and groups thus making the workplace an even more powerful venue for achieving success without compromising integrity.  The information you will gain in any of the certification seminars is applicable immediately to every corporate situation that exists.  Because the models are based on many universal and cross cultural principles, they will ring true when presented and are easy to grasp.  Corporate executives and trainers have repeatedly stated unequivocally how powerful and valuable the information is to their companies.

Model 1: The Nine Needs (February 16 - 17)

The Nine Needs determine what is essential for people to be productive and fulfilled.  Each person has the nine needs in a different order of priority with the top three running the show.  Knowing the top three needs and how to fill them is the key to job satisfaction for everyone.  Certification is optional and available to organizations and individuals that want to make Power Path knowledge and tools a part of their offerings to businesses, internal customers or colleagues. 

The certification course is a 2-day program.  Organizational trainers learn how to teach Power Path using tools and techniques specific to the seminar, including the usage of accompanying manuals.  Trainers also learn how to design and customize workshops and how to market Power Path programs.  Fees include on-going support and an option to order trainer materials.
