The Benefits of Online Training

Accelerated Leadership Training – Catalyst Demo

Post by Matt

I’ve talked a lot on this blog about our expert partners and the training they offer through CAI-U (and rightfully so, because their training is awesome); but I haven’t talked about the Leadership Training program Computer Aid, Inc. has developed: Catalyst.

Catalyst essentially takes everything my company has learned in its 25+ years of thought leadership, mixes in other industry expertise and research, and condenses everything down into an online, self-paced educational program. Catalyst helps you and your business managers become stronger leaders – it’s that simple. While the reasearch and development of this training took a very long time, you benefit from it within the first few hours.

I’ve recently uploaded a demo of the program that Jerry narrated (team member plug!) and helped develop to YouTube, check it out:
