Traffic! Just the thought of being stuck in traffic has the potential to derail the moment or even the day. We have apps to help us avoid traffic delays. Even with the best, you can’t always avoid the construction zone and roadblocks; a result of the continual need for proper maintenance.
Just out of curiosity—

- Communication problems
- High personnel turnover
- Performance issues
- Interpersonal conflict
- Under productive meetings
- Under productive teams/leaders
- Regular misunderstandings
- Excessive competition
- Low motivation/ Attitudes
Preventative maintenance is what keeps everything running smoothly. Our CEO Sherry Eifler learned that principle during her time in the Army. She has said a time or two, “You don’t want to be the Company Maintenance Officer when an Ambulance is unable to transport patients due to a preventative maintenance issue.” There is a cost related with the failure to invest in preventative maintenance. She also says, “Professional development is the preventative maintenance that organizations invest in to perform at the highest level.”
Professional development has a proven positive ROI: Less turnover in personnel and attracting and keeping the best talent.
Do you agree with this common phrase said by CEOs of large organizations? “People are our most appreciable asset.” Internationally known leadership expert, John Maxwell adds this caveat, “…only if leaders are developing them.”

“Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.” Robin Sharma
Before you make up your mind consider this….
Establish a strong foundation to build, and then continue to build wisely. Professional development that begins with the individual assessment sets a firm foundation to build on. The one subject everyone is interested in learning more about is himself or herself. It has been said, “Remember my face I will acknowledge you, remember my name and you will have my attention.” Do you agree?
Personalization is foundational for individual awareness to take hold and prepare us for the next steps in the building process of our professional development. Our goal is for awareness, plus experiential learning to result in positive change.
Results such as:
- Increased productivity

Motivated to change:
“All people are internally motivated to make changes in their lives that move them toward success or satisfaction within their particular life circumstances.”According to the theory (Harvard professor Clayton Christensen’s jobs to be done theory)
