Workplace Development

Workplace development is an all inclusive approach to assisting clients in developing best in class workplaces that can include any combination of: workshops, executive coaching, assistance in search and interviewing, workplace research and consulting time.

Clients agree to a monthly retainer (minimum of 12 days per year) and then use the time in the combination of services that best supports their efforts to develop the organization. For clients doing 12 or more workshops a year workplace development also provides a substantial workshop fee discount.

With workplace development you work in the fullest partnership with Gaynor Consulting to find out what your workplace potential really is.

"The Heart & Hands Leadership workshops are the most practical, readily applicable and inspiring pieces of leadership training I've ever had the privilege of attending. To put this in context, I started leadership training 45 years ago at a military academy, put it into practice first in the Vietnam war zone, and then for the next 40 years I've applied what I've learned in the business & local government realms. Looking back, I wish I had Dan as my instructor in that first leadership course."
