Part of the solution is coaching and developing professionals to move into leadership roles more seamlessly and take ownership of their career trajectory. Often times the talent needed for a company is right in-house, whereas other times, a fresh new perspective is needed and thus career-seeking professionals need to understand how to strategically plan for their career trajectory. To that end, we also understand that having top talent means nothing if they don't work cohesively and if managers and supervisors are not effectively leading.
Our main objective at Educate, Equip, and Empower Pro Svcs, is accelerating talent & leadership development while advancing women & diversity in the workplace. Often times this is through individualized coaching but other times, we are working with organizational teams.
About Educate, Equip and Empower Professional Services
Educate, Equip, and Empower (formerly NLW Career Prep) is a consulting agency that handles short term and long term succession planning for businesses to develop and promote staff from within. We also help individual professionals grow and thrive within their respective careers and secure employment. We provide corporate trainings to businesses whose goal is to shift the paradigm among their staff to educate, equip, and empower them to work more cohesively, and produce higher output. Our corporate curriculum allows senior level management and executives to invest in their staff's growth while still placing ownership on the individual staff members for their career trajectory plans and to have more accepting and inclusive environments that attracts and retain more diverse talent.
We believe investing in one's personal and professional growth is vital to have a successful career trajectory and allows businesses to retain and hire quality talent. We love to partner with organizations with succession planning to develop and implement institutional programs that are centered around career growth and leadership development for the staff. Whether we develop your full plan or we are the strategy for implementing a pre-existing plan, our goal is to equip your staff with the knowledge, tools, and strategies to be more engaged, productive, and to stay with the organization during the growth of their career.
