Research reveals that nearly 33% of a project manager’s day is spent correcting miscommunication.
This costs organizations a collective billions of dollars annually, not to mention
the lower productivity, performance, and morale among team members because of misunderstandings.
Peak Strategies is devoted to providing world-class organizational training, leadership
development and executive coaching to project managers and other high potential personnel.
We are committed to teach practical, useful skills to managers and executives though
our workshops and coaching sessions. It is our mission to help your project and team
excel with the interpersonal effectiveness strategies provided by Dr. Dawdy and Peak
In painting a visual context of our programs and services, our I/O psychologist may
be viewed as a ski-lift and our clients and program attendees may be viewed as the
skiers. Skiers may see the peak and know that once at the peak, they can explore
and expand their goals and experiences by trying new runs. Yet, without the ski lift
they are caught at the bottom of the mountain, staring to the sky. This is where
our professional programs and coaching are beneficial: We help guide the skiers (clients)
to the peak so they can see the overall view, explore new terrain, and reach their
potential. Without the ski lift, the trek to the peak may seem too difficult or impossible.
We are Project Management Institute Registered Education Providers (PMI REP’s) and
we facilitate programs on-site, on-line, and through PMI Chapters.
