Not So Basic Training
Hi! Thank you so much for your time. A little bit about me:
Currently as Owner and President of Not So Basic Training, I am passionate about helping organizations thrive. As a primarily in-person facilitator, I try to build curriculum around my client’s core competencies by matching the learning objectives/outcomes of training to the company’s overall Vision/Mission & Objectives. My areas of focus: leadership, empowering employees, managing change, performance management, presentation skills, and customer relations. I strive to make my sessions interactive, thought provoking and most of all inspiring enough to make a move. Sometimes it’s not about learning something new, it’s about remembering how important an idea is and making a plan to implement it.
After obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Communications / Marketing, I hopped around looking for something/somewhere I felt I could make a difference. In 2000 I found my calling at Not So Basic Training. In 2003, I purchased the business and have been delivering my ‘training joy’ all over the US (insert smile emoji). I hope that my background and and vast experience in various industries such as higher education, retail, health care, manufacturing, financial and family-owned businesses bring a fresh perspective to my content and to my learners.
Around year 2009, I was traveling non-stop and became really discouraged about the lack of common courtesy on our planet. I was journaling about it, reading my rantings to my friends and they encouraged me to put it all in a book. So I did and Not So Common Courtesy – The Owner’s Manual was born. My hope is that thru my sarcastic, sometimes profanity filled ramblings, we can put the “common” back in “Common Courtesy”.
At Not So Basic Training every training, coaching and consulting opportunity is approached with the same philosophy: excellent, well-trained employees are The Key to any successful company. In today’s world market the factors that distinguish one business from the next often come down to the value of human capital. That means companies have to be more strategic about their hiring and development of their most valued asset – their employees. Effective employee training and system development have never been so important in maintaining a competitive edge. Since 1993 Not So Basic Training’s culture and core focus has been: love what we do, do what we excel at, have some fun AND get results for our clients!
