Vienna, VA (PRWEB) March 20, 2009
Jewell & Associates has partnered with Ninety-five 5 (a Franklin Covey licensee) in a year long program for their employees. The program focuses on developing the communication skills, business methodologies and tools to be able to consistently bring these advanced analytical skills and high ROI to the marketplace.
"The current economic climate has forced firms in the project-based professional services market to scrutinize their spending on technology to a level never seen before," says Rick Turner of Ninety five 5. "However, research indicates that when they do decide to invest they prefer to partner with a vendor that can quickly and effectively access their most critical issues and then bring appropriate resources to bear on those concerns. In essence, these firms are most interested in working with a trusted advisor who can give them the greatest return on their investment."
Jewell & Associates embraces this concept which is why they looked to an industry expert to provide employee training. The company is committed to helping clients succeed now and in the future. Ms. Jewell introduced this program to her entire staff recently with a two day intensive base camp training. Prior to the base camp, employees were required to read the book "Let's Get Real or Let's Not Play" authored by Mahan Khalsa and Randy Illig.
"I am proud to have Jewell & Associates as our client," said Randy Illig, CEO of Ninety five 5. "So often I hear leaders say that they want to invest in their people and get serious about taking another step toward great performance and it's just talk. June and her team are about action - they walk the talk in everything they do."
Going forward, the program requires weekly employee commitment to using the tools provided, attending weekly coaching sessions, participating in the 5 online community and online training. Mid-year, there will be another intensive base camp training for all employees. This intensive program is being delivered to all Jewell & Associates employees because for us to help our clients succeed, we need to learn how to listen better to help solve client problems and deliver results.
"In the short time since we began implementing the program, we have seen a marked increase in the confidence of our client facing teams to provide value to our clients in this challenging economy," says June Jewell, President of Jewell & Associates. "In addition, we are doing a better job of qualifying opportunities sooner allowing us to focus our time with the clients that want and need our help. This program is teaching us not to guess what our clients need but to listen to their concerns so we can help them."
