But Dana returned and the 3-day training was completed, as well as another 3 day session the following year. I learned that taking a more strategic approach with my business leaders allowed me more credibility and a deeper entry into their world of priorities. By doing so, I was able to make the case for change, new programs, and alternatives to training that I would not have been able to do without this approach.
I completed 2 major projects with coaching from Dana during my tenure as a director of training at Gillette, and the results made direct business impact. As I moved further along in my career, I continued to apply key concepts and use the approach I learned from these experiences.

I feel all training professionals can benefit from this approach and will build greatly assist them in building credibility with their business partners.
