Training and Development

Has your company gone virtual in response to COVID19?

J. F. Smith & Associates can help you and your staff ease the transition from your office to a virtual environment. All of our programs can be delivered virtually and help you and your team work more effective remotely:

  • Managing Priorities
  • Time Management

Most leaders bring high functional skill to their position but often have not been exposed to important leadership skills – communication, team building and management.    This creates tensions between peers and staff.  In today’s diverse workforce environment, employees must learn how to work as a team.  To accomplish this requires many of the same skills – communication, team building and workplace civility. 

Helping your employees achieve their maximum potential is what we are all about.  We start by determining corporate and individual needs.  Together, we then will develop those programs that will have the most impact and achieve the results you seek from your employees and your organization.  

Our training and development practice leader and staff have earned PhD’s or advanced degrees in education, psychology or organizational development.   We understand how adults learn
