Learning and Development Strategy Consulting

Supporting Critical Business Goals
Has your organization ever failed to achieve a new business strategy, initiative, or project?

The strategy may not have been wrong.

More likely, people weren't prepared or trained on the presentation, influence, or collaboration skills needed to effectively execute it.

For your learning and development strategy to be effective, it must be linked to business goals.

That requires a consultative approach. No cookie cutting allowed.

What Do You Want to Achieve?
Mandel begins each customer relationship by determining the business outcome you want to achieve.

From there, we work with you to assess your organization’s current state and determine what skills are needed to achieve your strategy. We then design a training solution that is tightly aligned with your objectives.

We consider what success looks like from all organizational perspectives.

We design solutions that consider what success means to all stakeholders — you, your individual learners, managers, engagement sponsors, and funding executives or organizations.

The Mandel Engagement Model
