Sample Segments - Coach-on-Demand Learning and Development Series Podcasts


Our extensive and growing topics list runs the gamut of every conceivable workplace challenge that employees face day-in and day-out. Most of our episodes are centered around these everyday challenges (i.e., You Heard What About Me? How Not to be the Last to Know the Word on the Street About You) rather than being based on a classroom type topic (i.e., How to Receive Feedback). We can also produce custom episodes on topics of your choice.
