Employees: Your Biggest Investment
You have an effective business plan and have hired a stellar staff—now what? As a company, your largest investment is your people. Your priority should be to keep excellent employees who will enable you to stand out from the crowd. To do this, you need to show your employees that they matter by guaranteeing that they are the best-trained staff in your industry.
Successful professional development advances expertise and flexibility in your employees, inspiring them to make greater contributions and to take on different responsibilities. Just as important, professional development provides them with the opportunity to grow in their careers—and that cultivates loyalty
Why Go It Alone?
Just because you are “The Big Cheese” does not mean you have to stand alone. As a CEO, the head of human resources, or a manager, you may have an idea of what you want, but you may be fuzzy on the details. Or, perhaps you just need someone to carry those ideas out.
No matter what you need, we’re here to help. With Talent Excellence, you can count on flexibility, insight, and an understanding of the uniqueness of your industry, philosophy, and operations. Your coach’s extensive experience, coupled with her natural abilities, will ensure that every training exercise is a success.

Former Customer Connection Group Manager at Microsoft Enterprise Architect, Six Sigma Black Belt
”Terri was a key teammate for me. She always demonstrated expertise and sound business judgment in the resolution of complex issues. In negotiations, she is clear and empathetic in areas of intransigence, and open and constructive when compromise can be achieved. I was most impressed with her grasp and understanding of human dynamics. Her balanced, tactful, yet firm approach is a testimonial to her deep experience. She is an expert in creating a feeling of win/win for all. Although we work in different companies now, she continues to be a key professional resource for me”

- What are the appropriate times for breaks?
- When are our team meetings?
