When I first started the Athena Alliance seven years ago I had no idea what great relationships and wonderful people I would have the privilege of working with. I often hear from my partners what wonderful customers we have. I couldn’t agree with them more. We have been able to support small , mid-size and large organizations with a plethora of various training programs, coaching agreements and Human Resources consulting support.
I can remember the first time I met one of my long standing customers. She was new in her position and had a mandate to create a learning culture for this mid-size construction company. Her energy and passion for creating a powerful college was infectious. Every alliance partner has consistently commented on how fantastic it is to work with her and their employees. She loved the alliance concept right from the beginning and could see how aligning with me could save her a lot of time and also have trust that the trainers and coaches I introduced her to would be able to deliver the customized solutions she required.
To date she has contracted our alliance partners to provide training in the following areas:
- Leadership (many areas)
- Listening skills
- Power hours
- Empowerment programs for the Admin team
- Priority/time management
- Business writing
- Presentation Skills
- Mentoring program
Every year we sit together and discuss what they have accomplished in the past year and what they want to focus on in the coming year. I then get to work with my partners to make sure she has the partnerships she needs to make it happen. She is such a delight to work with and we are all grateful for the opportunity to provide the ongoing support for this organization.
Just one more reason I love what I do!!!
