We Go Above and Beyond Training

The Los Rios Government Training Academy (GTA) partners with public agencies to get results.

  • Needs assessment – We work with you to discover the results you want and what your people need to achieve them
  • Coaching – We provide coaching (and training and coaching for your supervisors/managers/coaches) to provide ongoing reinforcement of positive behaviors
  • Measurement – We can measure the value of training at multiple levels and have done so for dozens of clients
  • Application – What good is training if people don’t apply what they have learned in training as they return to the workplace? We build programs designed to make sure application happens!
