About ProEdge Skills, Inc.

"It was different than I thought it would be."

This is the most common & gratifying feedback we get.  Some employees begin by confessing, "I didn't want to be here."  Then they continue, "It was different than I thought it would be.  I wish I had this earlier.  I can't wait to apply on the job.  Thank you."  Some share that they can apply outside of work too.

What Makes ProEdge Different?

Exemplars

We practice what we preach.  If we teach it, we do it.  Your employees are getting experts and exemplars rather than talking heads.

icon_about-depth-02

Depth

All of our training is backed by research and experience.  Adult learners need to understand why something works, which adds depth and motivation.

Sticky

Training should be sticky.  Relevant examples and metaphors bring skills to life.  Clients recite stories and examples back to us years later.

Results

We keep our eye on the ball.  Training is about getting the specific results you want.  Skills and strategies are a means to an end, not an end in themselves.

Charity Work

This picture is from The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship's annual conference to teach inner city high school students how to start a business.  Education, Entrepreneurship, and the Environment are close to our heart, mission, and values.  We give back in 3 ways:

  • Time
  • Resources
  • Fundraising

See the charities we support and how we may be able to help your favorite cause.
