People First Productivity Solutions, a central California coaching and consulting firm that “builds organizational strength by putting people first,” has launched a new suite of products designed to help selling professionals and individuals develop professionally and personally. The free program, CONNECT!, offers daily tips, weekly blog posts, a bi-weekly radio show, and a monthly newsletter. Additionally, individuals can participate in Linked In group discussions and select premium services like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and related 1-on-1 coaching for additional support.
The strategy of offering free and low-cost tools to individuals is designed, according to company president Deb Calvert, “to give people who want to continually learn and develop easy access to practical tips, encouragement, and a community of like-minded people.”
To support this program, People First partnered with Striking Web Inc., a full service website development company based in the Bay Area, for extensive web site redesign and to build a stronger social media presence.
Early demand for the CONNECT! program surfaced after participants completed People First’s leadership and sales training programs. Over the past six years, Calvert said, “I’ve stayed in touch with hundreds of people who just want to stay connected to the learning and growth opportunities they had while participating in formal training and coaching. Many of them express an interest in sharing what they’ve learned… with people in other companies, with people who don’t work outside the home, and with a wide variety of individuals who simply don’t have resources like this.”
The CONNECT! strategy rounds out the programs offered by People First Productivity Solutions for training, coaching, consultant and assessment work. Consultants and trainers with People First work in numerous industries, with a particular focus in the media and produce/agriculture industries in North America, South America and Europe.
