We certainly appreciate you all being there for us. I really like it when TEA is the first words out of one of our Exec Team’s mouths when they need some assistance like this.

Training & Development


Our training philosophy is one of highly interactive sessions that engage all of the learner's senses to provide a relevant, applicable learning experience. Our trainers are not lecturers. We are facilitators of learning with the expectation that adults learn best by discovery.

We partner with our members and clients to develop programs that provide lasting solutions for employee development issues. We continually research the latest developments in the world of work so we can position our programs to meet your ongoing needs. We offer public programs, onsite programs at your facility and one-to-one coaching experiences. If, in reviewing our catalog and website, you don’t see something that you need, please give us a call. We can bring most programs to your workplace as well as offer speakers for meetings, facilitators for planning sessions and help with training needs analysis.

For more information about our training programs and services, contact Jason Reep at 616-698-1167.
