Training Programs

TrainingAbudi Consulting Group, LLC offers a variety of half day and full day workshops to clients. All training workshops are interactive, hands-on practical programs that enable participants to apply what they are learning immediately back on the job.

All workshops include a participant guide for reference after the workshop and most all workshops also include templates to be used back on the job. All programs include an action planning component to help the client continue the learning back on the job.

For each client, Abudi Consulting Group develops a customized case study to enable application of what is being learned in the workshop to a “real life” situation. For organizations that include participants from a variety of business units, a more general case study is used so that everyone is able to relate to it. In such situations, the case study is still tailored to a specific component of the client’s business.

For those clients interested in only a topic or two from a workshop, 1 1/2 to 3-hour events can be held at the client site.

All training programs/workshops include Action Planning to ensure participants are able to apply what they learn back on the job.
