Training for Getting Results the Agile Way

Training for Getting Results the Agile Way

  • Comments 0

“Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.” -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

With my latest book out, Getting Results the Agile Way, I’ve had a lot of people ask me, “Where’s the training?”  While I’ve been making a lot of self-paced material available on the Getting Results Knowledge Base, what folks are really asking for is, where is the *live* training? …

Well, here it is. Talk about timing and talk about a perfect partnership!  The live training is now available as a one-day, in-depth workshop to help you get up and running fast.  Learn how to get results with skill and work on the right things, at the right time, the right way, with the right energy to get your best results.   This is the same system I’ve used to lead distributed teams around the world since 2001, on time, on budget and it integrates some of the best practices from positive psychology, sports psychology, project management, and personal development.  There is a special emphasis on meaningful results, personal productivity, motivation, focus, passion, and purpose … and most importantly … responding to change … the agile way ;)
