vTransitions is a comprehensive leadership assessment and skill acquisition course that focuses on four of the most important, yet under-identified, leadership skill areas:


1. Group Process Leadership

2. Peer Influence

3. Career and Performance Coaching

4. Consultative Selling Skills


The final outcome is the framework for a Personal Development Plan (PDP), which is meant to be shared with management, mentors and other significant players on a participant’s career Board of Directors.


So you can plan accordingly, the majority of the Chapters and Subchapters, identified as Part I or Part II, typically take 30 minutes to complete. A few chapters will take as little as 15 minutes, while a few others may take as long as 45 minutes. Every attempt has been made to condense the content into "bite size” portions that can be completed in a reasonable time. Please try to finish complete section(s) in one sitting to achieve maximum continuity and instructional benefit.


A downloadable Toolbox is provided for your personal use, reinforcement and follow-up. It is located after the final chapter.


If you have any questions we’re always available. Our contact information is listed above.


Good luck and enjoy the class.
