Government agencies and bureaus are unique entities. They are guided by legislative mandates, purposed with very special civic missions, often constrained by specific budget parameters and sometimes collective bargaining agreements, and always trying to balance political drivers. These dynamics create unique working conditions for professionals working in government agencies. To all government professionals, PowerSkills wants to let you know that we get the challenging situations that you are in. We get that you are constantly balancing multiple internal and external stakeholder needs, often at local, state and national levels. We recognize and applaud you for constantly being mission and service-centered, placing the mission of your organization ahead of personal interests.
For 21 years the PowerSkills Team has provided classroom-based and webinar seminars, coaching, organization consulting, program development support, and mediation services to municipal, state and federal agencies. Because our team members hold advanced degrees in business/organizational management and advanced degrees in a variety of human relations (e.g., counseling, social work, psychology), we are able to delve into and discern challenges that seem intractable and insurmountable. We are able to help you understand what’s really going on, what can be done about it, and the services that will best meet your needs.
We focus on providing government agencies with insightful, practical, holistic education and solutions. We will take time to listen to you without charging you extra for a mere consultation call. After listening, we will offer you honest perspectives about what we believe to be the real issues underlying surface challenges. We’ll offer some on-the-spot advice and then suggest services that will address your goals, hopes and needs.
Our costs for classroom-based seminars are some of the lowest costs in the industry. Imagine a typical 3-day on-site classroom seminar for about $235/per person (average cost for a class of 30 participants) or $375/per person for a 5-day on-site seminar (average cost for a class of 30 participants). If budgets are constrained we guarantee to work within your budget and reduce costs because your mission, and our mission to serve, always matters more than money. We charge one flat daily rate for groups of up to 30 participants so estimates are always easy and quick for you to obtain. You provide us with a topic, the number of participants, the location of the training and the proposed dates/times, and we will quickly send you an fixed price for the program.
