Building Organizational Capability Through the Development of Individual and Team Potential™
Who We Help
Everyday business leaders everywhere are so pressed for time that development for themselves and their teams gets pushed aside or removed completely in a cycle of diminishing effectiveness. Teams are often built from subject matter experts who haven’t fully developed the leadership, communication, and relationship management skills necessary for individual and team success. Accordingly, leaders who want to develop their teams are challenged to find a cost-effective solution that…
Provides ongoing development that’s integrated into the work itself.
Is scaleable and deployable worldwide.
Requires a minimum of time.
At TalentPlanet, we get it…and, we’re here to help!

"Dr. Greg is quite good. He is funny and has an ability to make topics light hearted. This has worked really well with our team here in India, and will work even better with a US based team. He is prompt, and keeps us (including myself) honest about timelines and such – because as you know these things will slip from our priority list. He has a good balance of understanding when to let things slide and when to put some pressure on getting his responses and such."

Our Coach-on-Demand Podcasts™ are self-directed, on-demand learning modules that cover a range of non-technical skills such as leadership, Emotional Intelligence, communication, and relationship building.
They clock in at a maximum of twelve minutes and are produced in an engaging “talk show” format. Each podcast focuses on a challenge you and your employees face on the job every day, and drives towards a set of learning points and action steps which enable listeners to try out the skills covered in the podcast.
We license them to businesses for use as part of their learning and development offerings and use them as part of our Blended Team Learning and Leadership Development Solution™. Here's a sample from the 80+ podcasts produced thus far.
That Whole Work/Life Balance Thing Was Never Going to Work.
It’s Time to Scrap the Idea of Balance and Instead Strive For Integration
With the many changes Covid 19 is bringing to the way we work there's one idea in particular that the pandemic has shown us was never going to work. That is, the concept of work/life balance is both unrealistic and potentially harmful.
Instead of balance, we recommend work/life integration, which means that employers take a wholistic view of staff and recognize that they have a role to play in helping them integrate the different parts of their lives into one whole life. It means organizations understand that the stress of managing both home and work realms can have a negative effect on staff morale, productivity, and engagement, and that they can’t leave this challenge on the shoulders of staff alone to manage.
