Virtual Academy

To meet the needs of a geographically dispersed team, or to maintain momentum and skill development after a live Stand & Deliver program, our expert coaches can deliver our curriculum virtually either as a complete, 12-part series or custom-designed from the modules listed below. Each 90-minute WebEx training consists of a 45-minute plenary session followed by a 45-minute small-group breakout session with a coach.
