Excellence in Business Leadership Development

The popular story today in business is that "knowledge is power." True enough, knowledge is a component of success, but more important is the ability to execute well, to put knowledge into action, to produce results.


  • Sales ability
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Managing others
  • Communication
  • Listening
  • Customer service

These business leadership skills are all skills of implementation. All require the ability to listen, communicate ideas, inspire and move others to action. Other training programs teach what to do, do this or that to be successful, but only PAR also shows you how to do them. Other programs leave you knowing about skills, only PAR's business leadership courses leave you able to do the skills and demonstrate that you can use them successfully.

We achieve these results through our unique methodology which puts participants to work achieving actual business results during our leadership development courses. Also vital is the proprietary content of our programs. We break these skills down into manageable and measurable steps for easy comprehension and mastery.

Conscious Competence

These are skills that people use, on occasion, in their most successful interactions. The most successful people have discovered them intuitively and use them regularly, but they find it difficult to describe their skills in crystal clear words.

In our business leadership courses, we have found a way to make those skills clear, understandable and teachable. When people have those skills clarified, illustrated, taught back and coached to them, they can reproduce those skills on purpose. They become consciously competent. Everyone benefits from this. Successful people are made even more so. Others are finally able to pinpoint and improve these core competencies.

And this hands-on approach which causes people to focus on their successes, apply skills to actual work issues and see the results for themselves is highly effective, more so than traditional schoolroom training. We call this process "learning from success." We've seen it work time after time after time. So often, in fact, that we feel confident in guaranteeing our programs will produce business results.
