Without Understanding & Ownership, Results Will Always Fall Short

The Economy Has Changed. What People Want Has Changed. We are not paid for our time; we are paid for our Value. The greater the value we provide, the more success we have. Hard and soft skill training is important, but without Career Ownership & Advancement Training™ (COAT), results and growth are compromised.


We Know it is About Doing More for More

Serving clients and employers for this economy is challenging. Employers need employees that “get it”, take ownership, and perform, and clients want onramps and pathways that suit them and the lifestyle they seek.

We Work in 24 States & Maintain a 94%* Success Rate

We work with Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) and providers funded by WIOA, TANF, ARPA and other sources to deliver programming that delivers on what is missing, and exactly what employers and clients want and need.

Workshops and Bootcamps that Drive Results

Highly engaging, relevant, and action-oriented programming that empowers people to thrive in this economy, and any that follows.  In this live (never recorded) cohort-based programming, clients learn how the world works, what really drives success (adding Value!), the Four Dimensions of Value™, and exactly how to put this into action now, and turn any position into a launchpad for the career they want.

Three Step Process That Yields Lasting Results

Based in research and proven in practice, this is a simple, yet powerful process builds ownership, agency, motivation, action, and outcomes.

We take a scientific approach to shift mindset by helping them conclude and firmly believe (1) it can be done and (2) they can do it.  We accomplish this by clearly revealing how the world works, what drives success (adding Value!), and exactly how it was and is done with great success by people with the most challenging of circumstances.

We use self-assessment and experimentation to bring a spotlight to the value they can provide and the opportunities (on-ramps and pathways) available to them.  They determine what they can be good or great at and like or love.  This alignment helps them get in their “lane” and offers a sustainable path of success and growth.

With understanding, alignment, intention, and powerful tools, they can differentiate themselves in the application process, perform better, stay longer, and advance faster.  They now have the power to transform any job opportunity or job into a launchpad for the career they want.

We learn from a young age that if we work hard and keep our heads down, we will earn increasing responsibilities and pay. That used to be true when businesses felt a greater responsibility to nurture and grow their employees. But now that everything is in service to the short-term bottom line for stockholders, the rules have changed.

The world of work has changed. Few people graduate, climb onto the career ladder, then climb off decades later from a higher rung with a golden retirement watch. Most people work for many companies, in many industries, and under many different terms during the course of their careers.

Golden watch pathways have been replaced by lower pay jobs and less opportunities for career growth. Others have been broken down into small chunks of contract work. This puts people at constant risk of stagnating or even sliding backward. The middle class is shrinking, and no one is immune.

All of this means that ordinary people are able - and really, required – to shape their own career pathways.
