Switchback On-Site Trainings offer organizations the impact and value of live face-to-face training experiences while maintaining day to day workflow, generating significant organizational development and personal growth without disrupting productivity.  The unique 3 day training process of discovery, retention and integration, results in consistent positive feedback and long-term change.

Each day is divided into morning group training sessions, building teamwork and opening up communication in real time, and afternoon sessions incorporating one-on-one consults that are a powerful individual growth tool. This unique methodology gives participants focused time in the morning to develop Switchback competencies and time each afternoon to stay caught up with day to day business.

With Switchback Foundation as it’s core, realize targeted growth with Advanced Implementation for Teams, Leadership, Culture and Safety

“Our organization had to grow to the next level but we had defaulted into a ‘warrior culture’: understaffed, overworked and departmental fatigue. We couldn’t expand without changing our culture.  Switchback On-Site Training and Consulting worked with us at every level and gave us the tools and thinking to rapidly shift our culture.  Now we have built in capacity which has given us a long term sustainable successful culture.” Dave VP
