Our seminars take a results-oriented approach to employee development.
We've refined our training systems and constantly updated our curricula over the course of decades to ensure that your seminar or workshop is uncommonly effective.
We believe in creating a positive learning environment, and make no apologies for the fact that our programs often are described as "entertaining."
But we don't believe in fluff; we pack a tremendous amount of usable information into every training program, and the results speak for themselves: A substantial part of our business is repeat business.
We differ from other training providers by guaranteeing your course tuition in advance.
That means we don't heap additional charges onto your invoice: We believe you shouldn't have to predict—or pay for—things like instructor travel, student materials, or miscellaneous expenses.
This takes the guesswork out of planning your training program, and usually reduces your expenditure as compared to the common "cost-plus" pricing method.
Our all-inclusive tuition structure is particularly appealing to contracting officers who need to use a reliable quote.
TSOD course leaders are experts in their fields. They have significant, relevant professional experience preceding their selection into our cadre.
In addition to outstanding professional and academic credentials, our course facilitators exhibit uncommon communication skills. All have extensive speaking and writing credentials.
We never hire "any-subject-for-a-buck" public speakers. Experience proves that in-depth subject matter expertise is pivotal to the success of a learning experience.
We make scheduling your training program as effortless as possible.
Since we provide virtually everything except classroom space and students, working with TSOD is a turnkey proposition.
After signing a very simple and straightforward Service Agreement, we'll take care of the instructors, student materials, and most of the logistical details. We'll even provide you with preparation checklists to ensure that no question goes unanswered.
Through bundled pricing and simplified procurement, TSOD ensures that scheduling a training program is an easy checkmark on your to-do list.
Interestingly, every one of our seminars and workshops is shorter than it used to be. We're merciless in streamlining our workshops to ensure that your employee development time is invested wisely.
We understand and respect the time commitment involved in gathering your team for training, and we're expert at making every second count.
During our seminars and workshops, you'll never wonder why a particular discussion is relevant or useful: It's all relevant and useful.
And we conclude each of these fast-paced learning experiences with advice and action plans to ensure that your new insights are put to good use.
Our instructional designers strongly believe in leveraging all communication channels. That's why every TSOD seminar and workshop includes valuable take-away texts and vivid in-class graphics.
We use state-of-the-art design systems to ensure that you receive the most informative, compelling, and motivating learning experience possible. We even provide pens and note paper to make sure you don't miss a word.
Instructional technology has advanced significantly in recent years, and we're leading the way in using that progress.
Excuse us for a moment while we knock wood: TSOD has never missed a scheduled training program.
Our instructors have traveled overnight on Greyhound buses through blizzards, patched flat tires in remote desert outposts, and flown jumpseat on cargo jets to reach their destinations during challenging times.
This isn't to say that we'll never miss a program. Someday, we'll encounter the immovable object. But historically, we're an irresistible force of respect for your schedule.
We know that your investment in training involves people, not just tuition. We do everything humanly possible to live-up to your expectations.
TSOD training programs aren't offered in hotels as walk-in seminars. We work exclusively with teams, and we do it for two reasons:
• First, it's much more meaningful to expose all team members to the same information, engage all team members in the same discussions, and reach conclusions relevant to that team.
• Second, it's more efficient to bring an instructor to your location than to deliver your team members to remote locations.
Our team-oriented approach to employee development is more effective and more economical, and our customers expect nothing less.
Many of our customers have branches in several locations. TSOD is unique in its ability to serve multiple locations at bundled, all-inclusive rates.
Through our relationships with airlines and other travel vendors, we can offer flat-rate pricing nationwide.
That means that our customers can deliver the same message to various employee groups at a predictable cost.
TSOD's comprehensive internet portal (www.tsod.com) provides 24/7 access to course information and customer service.
Through this uncommonly informative online resource, our customers can research training options and gain valuable insights on the appropriate approach to their training needs.
Contracted customers also have access to our Customer Resource section, which provides checklists, background materials and recommended text for course announcements.
Through tsod.com, we ensure that our customers have the information and resources to make the best decisions for their employee development programs.
