A few months ago, my sister invited me to join her in May for the Warrior Dash, a 3-mile race course of various obstacles to overcome…all in the mud. I couldn’t think of anything I’d RATHER NOT do than to scale walls and crawl through barbed wire while covered in mud. Sadly, I was not able to register before the event was full. I had stalled just long enough!
Even though I won’t be joining my sister on race day, we meet three days a week for strength training and run together on the weekends. Our combined efforts not only inspire us both, but ensure she will be in peak performance come show time.
I see my role at GP Strategies in much the same way—one where I strive to provide support, encouragement, tools, and accountability to the customers I serve (both internally and externally). Inspiring and enabling people directly impacts their roles and business outcomes. In fact, “to make a meaningful impact” is one of GP Strategies’ core values that guides our decision-making and helps us support our customers. What makes this even more compelling is learning how our customers make an impact in their roles. As part of our new brand identity launch, we are highlighting a few customer successes.
- Seamlessly integrated learning technology for 37,000 employees in six months
- Delivered 7,000 mobile, hands-on training courses to 97,000 first responders
- Increased customer complaint first-call resolution through custom training and workshops
It’s exciting to see significant business impact that results from assessment, strategic planning, customized training, and execution.
We all have a race or goal to accomplish. Working together, inspiring each other, we are able to get to the finish line faster and celebrate. And gear up to take on the next challenge!
