A growing move towards more leadership skills courses

In 2018, we saw a big shift towards leadership skills training courses. We see a noticeable increase in the focus of leadership training initiatives that we expect will continue into the early months of 2019 and beyond. And, across a wide range of industries.

If you are looking to deliver your own courses then you need to start collating effective training materials that answer some important questions. For example, what is leadership? What leadership qualities should leaders display to survive within companies today? What are the characteristics of a good leader? And, how can leadership theories help us learn more about leadership competencies?

“As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak.

I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal.

One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials.”

“While managing a team of in-house facilitators at a large company, I first discovered Oak in 2004. We purchased several training products from his company and were very pleased with the quality and price. Later, I purchased his entire portfolio of training content and still use them to this day. I must say, I was reluctant at first to do business with someone out of the USA as one is never sure of the integrity of the business. I can say, without reservation, Oak delivers what is promised and has consistently provided excellent customer service. If you’re considering Oak and still a bit iffy about purchasing from oversees. I’ll be glad to share my positive experiences regarding this company.”
