Dr. Sarah Skidmore’s leadership training and consulting are based on learning. At the foundation of any of her leadership labs, leadership consulting services for small businesses, or even leadership development programs for new clients – learning is the key. One of three ways for leaders to promote learning starts with conveying the vision of the business owner or leadership team. Through our leadership training courses and management training, we focus on developing effective leaders and improving performance for the organization. Take a look at the firm’s training and consulting offerings with a learning framework in mind.
