What’s Your Weakness?

Identify and Improve

Improve your communication skills. Develop your management team. Watch your staff step up to deliver amazing customer service.

We have a training for that. We deliver presentations, small group trainings or one-on-one coaching.

Become an effective leader through practice. Scott Human Resources offers customized leadership training programs and staff development training programs that will elevate performance while improving communication. Invest in your managers by providing small group or one-on-one executive coaching.

Acknowledge Weakness

Every leader, manager and employee has strengths and weaknesses. You might struggle with time management or maybe you avoid having difficult conversations. In a well-rounded organization or a well-developed team, our strengths and weaknesses should balance out so the organization runs smoothly. But what if it doesn’t? What if you’re hiring for the same position month after month because new hires kept leaving? What if your department is full of conflict and you don’t know how to resolve it?

Improve with Focused Education

Here’s the good news. Each of us can improve with training and education. Your staff (yes, even that challenging one) can be effectively coached to better performance. Outdated business practices, whether in hiring or managing staff, benefit from fresh perspectives and current best practices. That is exactly where Scott Human Resources can come alongside your business and offer customized education experiences to address your needs.

The certified professionals of Scott Human Resources deliver high-energy, engaging and effective training on a wide variety of hr topics. In the last year, Scott HR heard from many clients and colleagues in Topeka and Northeast Kansas asking for one-on-one leadership training, small group management coaching and team building training. We heard them and we delivered.

Benefits of Training

Education is most effective when the student has the opportunity to immediately practice what he has learned. This is one of the reasons we don’t retain much of what we hear at conferences and seminars, despite feeling inspired during the presentation. Trainings from Scott Human Resources are delivered with action items and have immediate practical application to support skill development and retention.

Here are some of the reasons our clients invest in trainings:

  • Plan for the future by developing leaders within their staff
  • Build stronger teams for unity and growth
  • Improve managerial performance and communication through focused education (which improves employee retention and performance as well)
  • Unite department heads and align performance with vision
  • Improve customer service to WOW levels
  • Strengthen hiring and onboarding practices to reduce turnover

Small group or one-on-one trainings are simply more effective than large-scale presentations. Every training can be customized for your industry, your major needs and your employees. Any investment in training to improve your professional skills or those of your team will bring benefits to your business.
