Custom and Public Workshops

Serving the Leigh Valley, Allentown, and beyond, The Center for Leadership and Workforce Development can deliver customized workshops at your location or on our campus. We will work with you to determine your specific needs, budget, and time frame to develop a program that will produce results for you and your staff.

The programs listed below are some of our most popular programs, but we can develop a program to meet your organizations specific needs.

Business Analysis

The role of business analyst has been identified as a high priority occupation by the State Workforce Investment Board (WIB). Having key business analysis skills in the workplace can set your business apart.

The Center for Leadership and Workforce Development is offering Introduction to Business Analysis to familiarize you with the importance of business analysis as well as provide those working in that capacity in your organization with the skills necessary to be successful.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss fundamental aspects of the role of a business analyst
  • Distinguish between the roles of a business analyst and a project manager
  • Write clear and useful requirements for projects and identify ways to elicit responses for clearly written requirements.
  • Identify key stakeholders related to your organization and your project.
  • Identify ways to maintain project fidelity and management of project managers and others working on the project.

Creating an Accountability Mindset
Participants in this series of workshops will have the opportunity to gain new skills in developing personal accountability in dealing with ever-changing work activities. They will explore how to handle new assignments or projects, utilize creative thinking to solve problems, create a participative team environment and overcome barriers to planned or unplanned change.

Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is an assessment- based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. Powered by Everything DiSC, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC styles. Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.
