“In today's fast-paced economy, it's absolutely essential to continue learning throughout your career."
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Today Gazelles Growth Institute, an online executive education company, announced the debut of its All-Inclusive Corporate Membership Program, the newest package in a line of market-driven educational platforms designed to help fast-growing firms and C-level executives maintain business growth.
Local business success is desperately needed to revitalize the nation's woeful economy, and fast-growing firms of all sizes are the ones holding the reins. As noted in Bloomberg, economic research shows that “while employment at startups accounts for just 3 percent of the workforce, hiring by these firms represents 20 percent of total job creation.” But in today's fiercely competitive environment, entrepreneurs and executives need tangible business strategies in order to grow.
The program features a powerful combination of 30+ e-courses in key business subjects, an organizational health checkup, as well as personalized consulting developed from cutting-edge thought leaders such as Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Pat Lencioni, Chet Holmes, Geoff Smart, and Brad Feld.
“In today's fast-paced economy, it's absolutely essential to continue learning throughout your career. In the past, many professionals turned to conventional executive education seminars. Today, these programs are becoming outdated, in part because they focus on academic goals that fall short when it comes to helping you apply what you’ve learned to the business world,” states Juan Gonzalez. “We founded Gazelles Growth Institute to deliver the type of education that today’s executives really need. In fact, we have more than 20 companies in our Corporate Membership Program and this past week we signed our first client from Australia.”
Courses are structured in a hybrid-educational approach consisting of theory, practice and guided implementation by certified coaches in an easy-to-implement format. Video instruction from respected authors, researchers and experts is offered online along with support from certified coaches to assure practice and guided implementation of the principles of the instruction.
GGI's faculty help companies find real-world business solutions, utilizing professional research to address business challenges. Gazelles Growth Institute's online seminars focus on crucial subjects such as sales, growth strategies, start ups, change management, customer loyalty, execution, human resources, innovation, management, marketing, negotiation, organizational management, and pricing strategies.
For companies who are unsure of where to begin, the All-Inclusive Corporate Membership Program includes an organizational health check-up, a diagnostic tool that assesses levels of performance throughout the organization in a controlled, accurate and effective way. From this initial step forward, teams work together and learn together to achieve results.
“I think the teams that work together, play together, and learn together, stay together,” states Gazelles Growth Institute's client at Catapult Systems. “As a team, to learn something together, it makes us individually better, and it makes us better as a team, as a company – It gives us an opportunity to share relevant experiences as they apply to our company. It's not just academic learning, it's not just in theory.”
Up to 20 employees from the same company can have unlimited access to 30+ seminars for $3000. Up to 200 employees from the same company can have unlimited access to seminars for $5000. Gazelles Growth Institute is also adding a new seminar every month, with the objective of reaching 50 courses by the end of the year. Compared to fees charged by universities or in-house consultants, the Gazelles Growth Institute offers a practical, cost-effective alternative for strengthening an organization through learning.
