Trusted by industry leaders to deliver real growth.


Companies like Harley-Davidson, Johnson Controls, and Uline know that a strong leadership pipeline is an essential competitive advantage. They are among dozens of successful organizations that trust their top talent to FOCUS Training

Our curriculum, once available exclusively to those with resources to build an in-house class, is now accessible to every rising leader through the Accelerate Institute.


The right balance - robust skill development for busy professionals.


High potentials want more than limited content in a one-day seminar, but many don't have the time to spare for an 18-week university certificate program...much less a graduate degree. 

The Accelerate Institute offers the best of both worlds. Robust skills certification in a six month time frame that fits the schedules of busy professionals.
