New Cerebyte Quick Start Workshops Accelerate Learning

In just a few short hours, companies can take advantage of the wisdom of star performers to put employees, managers on the fast track to greatness

Portland, Oregon, Nov. 17, 2014 – Cerebyte, the leader in using advanced neuroscience to enable people to think and act like top performers, has announced the availability of Quick Start Workshops that quickly and efficiently put company leaders, managers and employees on the fast path toward top-level performance.

Regardless of level or job description, today’s employees are busier than ever and a growing number of organizations face time and budget constraints when it comes to training programs. Challenges like these make it hard for organizations to invest in comprehensive transformational programs. That’s where the Quick Start Workshops come in, providing a way to improve performance quickly and cost-effectively.

“With the Quick Start Workshops, your organization can tap the wisdom we’ve gained from more than 15 years of working with top performers in a wide variety of industries,” said William Seidman, Chief Executive officer and President, Cerebyte. “The Quick Start Workshops employ many of the same techniques as our more extensive programs and can lead to sustained performance improvement, when coupled with our proprietary online learning platform.”

Starting with insights accumulated from interviewing 1,000s of top performing managers, executives, and employees, Cerebyte works closely with training managers to design a customized Quick Start training plan to fit the needs of their company and employees. The Quick Start Workshops use the latest education techniques from the world of neuroscience and can be delivered on premise, remotely or a combination. Workshops can range in length from 4 hours to 2 days, depending on an organization’s needs.

A broad range of Quick Start Workshops are available including:

Transformational Leadership: This workshop is based on the book The Star Factor by William Seidman and Richard Grbavac and is designed for managers and executives.

First-line Supervisors and Middle Managers: Focuses on those who have a direct link between the company and the customers, and can have a huge impact on the bottom line.

Sales: These workshops focus on encouraging the sales team to make stronger connections and solve problems for customers. Building on the wisdom of top sales people from around the world, this workshop gets sales people focused on the right things to increase customer impact and drive sales like never before.

Service: Teaches great call center customer service, inbound customer service and more. Cerebyte methodologies have been shown to greatly reduce turnover rates and dramatically improve call center performance.

Manufacturing: Offers education on new product planning, factory throughput optimization, demand forecasting, safety leadership and efficient logistics operations.

Technical Roles: Focus on effective IT project management, data analysis and software quality assurance so technical projects are delivered on time and on budget.

Industry Specific and other: Building on the best-known methods to attain greatness in a particular role, these workshops include retail store management, restaurant and hotel front-desk management and non-medical case managers among others.

“Cerebyte’s Affirmative Leadership methodology has proven its effectiveness time and time again in our organization and for our customers,” said Linda O’Neill, Vice President Strategic Services of Vigilant, an expert resource for complex employment-related issues for companies on the west coast. “What Cerebyte is doing with the Quick Start Workshops makes a lot sense. Given the level of performance improvement companies can expect to see, this is an incredible value.”
