Are you struggling with moving ahead at work? Does your boss tell you that you need to be better with your time management?
Do you wish you had more respect and that people listened to you? Do you want to improve your skills so the right people will finally see your potential?
At my company, Downey Learning Academy, we believe that these are all learned skills. Being an introvert, I struggled with these things for a long time. I started listening to people like Tony Robbins and Zig Ziglar and realized that there are steps that you can take to improve all of these skills. I spent the last 20 years honing these skills into a process that helped me to improve my communication and time management abilities.
I believe that we all have the capability to be better versions of ourselves. All we need is the right training. In any organization, having great business and personal skills is critical to your success. I can help you learn those skills.
