You hire the people with the best experience and judgment for every job. You present them with tough challenges. You can count on them to step up. At least, that's how it's support to work.
In reality, your team sometimes needs support to help them follow through effectively. The business environment is always changing, and you are asking your people to take on new, unfamiliar, uncomfortable tasks, with no cookie-cutter procedures to follow.
In Jean Moroney's corporate programs, your team will dive into a working session designed to address your particular challenges. Sessions build analytical skills, independent thinking, and personal effectiveness of each team member.
- Taking Action: How to Align "Should" and "Want" and "Can" to Eliminate Procrastination and Propel You Forward (1/2-day or 1-day)
- Thinking on Your Feet: 3 Radical Tools for Gaining Mental Leverage When You're Overloaded, Conflicted or Blank (1/2-day or 1-day)
- Crossing the Finish Line: How to Eliminate Slippery Slopes, Endless Loops, and Other Perfectionistic Stalling Tactics (1/2-day, 1-day, or 2-day)
In these programs, each person will bring his own work to think about during the in-class working sessions. For more information on these programs, visit the courses page.
Alternately, you may want a custom program
A custom program is best if you are looking to help your whole team deal with a specific challenge. We can combine material from different programs to address your problem to achieve a team-wide solution.

|You value independent thinkers on your team
||You just want people to buckle down and do what they're told|

|You want a partner who will help figure out what the team needs to make the time most valuable
||You are filling a time slot or checking off a training box|
|You insist that the time, effort, and energy spent on the program keeps paying off in the future

"Having participated in the Thinking Tactics course, I would recommend it
to anyone who wants to improve their thinking methods. The course is
particularly helpful in bringing to consciousness practical techniques to
focus your thought process and overcome thinking inertia. Every participant
in the course I attended found it to be extremely helpful."
"This class teaches practical tactics which
apply directly to real-world problems. The lessons are well-integrated and memorable: months after the training, the vocabulary and
tactics from class are still seen commonly in our group's technical reviews, brainstorming sessions, and other meetings. I recommend
Thinking Tactics as a tool for developing your top employees."
"As Jean energetically
presents her course in an organized, skillful manner, I listen with a big
grin knowing how much extra profit I will make by having our employees spend
a day with her being taught how to think better.
The attendees come back charged with Jean's energy and ideas, ready to work."
"I use 'Thinking Tactics' for a lot of day-to-day activities at work. They're great tools to have available. Before I took the class, I might delay working on a problem when I got stuck, and move on to something else. Now I know what to look for and what to do. I've not had an instance where I haven't been able to come up with a solution using the tactics. Thanks for a great life lesson."
—Brett Crawford, Automotive Engineering, Detroit, Michigan
"I've taken many great training courses, however, I can confidently say
that I have never before had a course that within 30 minutes on my first
back on the job, I'm referencing the training materials for on-the-job
guidance! What a testimonial as to the applicability of "Thinking
"P.S. Jean—I've posted your laminated Thinking Flow Diagram right by my workstation!"
—Rachel M. Floars, BB&T EDC Risk Manager
"I was working on a strategy document for my new team and getting stuck. So I pulled out my binder from the course and reviewed the 'Thinking on Paper' section. The technique really helped. Thank you."
—Randy Henne, Principal Group Program Manager, Microsoft Ireland
"After Jean gave Thinking Tactics 1: Concentration to the legal department, I had at least a dozen emails saying how great it was."
