Our Partners

Exactly what we wanted

"It’s great to work with Career Growth because, unlike the Big Box companies, they worked with us to provide exactly what we wanted and needed rather than a one size fits all program."

So easy to work with

"We’ve worked with Career Growth for over twenty years. They are just so easy to work with! All of their instructors are great. They adapt their courses for us; they are a great partner for us.”

Come back to CGA

"After trying some on-line learning, we’ve come back to Career Growth and their interactive classroom courses that people can immediately apply to their jobs.”

Leadership Development

Leadership is about laying the groundwork for others' success and then letting them shine.

Our leadership development solutions offer proven leadership methodologies for developing leaders at all levels. Our leadership development programs and courses focus on a variety of today’s most common leadership challenges that require a mindset and skillset for:

  • Improving communication and collaboration
  • Motivating and inspiring employees
  • Engaging and retaining talent
  • Creating a culture of inclusion
  • Leading change
  • Leading remotely

We can provide “off the shelf” courses that address basic knowledge, skill, and behavior development. Typically, we customize a solution to meet the needs and backgrounds of your leaders, utilizing our extensive leadership curriculum and building upon what is available from your L & D team.

Featured Leadership Programs

First Time Leader (FTL)

This program is designed for high potentials, those emerging talents, and future leaders.

It is designed to support a successful transition from individual contributor to leader. 

The program focuses on developing a leadership mindset and skillset that avoids the common mistakes made by first-time leaders and prepares them for success.

It can be customized to complement and align with existing internal development activities.

Plant Front Line-Leader (PFL)

This program is designed for leaders who have had little or no leadership training prior to assuming a leadership role.

It builds upon their experiences and offers best-practice solutions by focusing on developing leadership attitudes, skills, and behaviors for:

1) effectively interacting with their direct reports, other leaders, and their manager and 2) managing operations and delivering results.

Performance Assessment

What gets measured, gets managed.

CGA partners with organizations to diagnose and assess leadership and talent capabilities and potential.

Partnering with our affiliates at Scitrain, we are able to offer insightful tools for leaders, individual contributors, and teams that uncover leadership styles, individual strengths, and development opportunities.

We also offer organizational needs assessments to determine human capital asset management needs related to leadership/ talent performance and development and retention.

Featured Leadership & Talent Assessment Programs


The DiSC identifies an individuals preferred behaviors for interacting with others.  By understanding the four behavioral preferences - Dominance, influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness, individuals can more accurately interpret the actions of others and then consciously adapt their own behaviors to be more effective in their communications and interpersonal relationships.  The three DiSC assessments utilized by Career Growth Include:

Workplace - Build Better Relationships

Management - Inspire Great Managers

Work of Leaders - Lead with Impact

Leadership Assessment Centers

A series of assessments, simulations, role plays, etc. observed and evaluated to identify development needs, future roles, and assignments.

Skilled coaches provide on-going assistance in creating development plans, feedback, and support for behavioral change.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

An introspective self-report questionnaire with the purpose of indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions.

We offer various applications of the MBTI including Leadership Style, Team Profiles, Sales/Selling, Skills/Behaviors: Communication, Decision Making, Conflict Stress

Talent Development

Employees are your most valuable assets. They are the heart and guts of a company.

Employees are the most valuable assets and truly the backbone of an organization. Without employees in an organization, even the most powerful machinery with the latest technology would not function. Employers must invest their time and resources in training and developing their workforce in order for them to become indispensable resources.

CGA’s Talent Development programs and courses help in developing and nurturing employees for them to become reliable resources that contribute effectively to the organization.

Our activities are designed to help an organization define and identify gaps in learning, address learning needs through engaging and impactful learning experiences, and achieve post-classroom results.
