Fill your “training gap”
with GPC Academy

Feeling overwhelmed and stressed at work?
Wasting time in unproductive meetings that are very short on results?
Struggling to manage and prioritize your work?

We all hear a lot about “corporate training”, where organizations invest in their people by developing them professionally and personally.

But what if your organization doesn’t do this?

What if you’re expected to be a productive professional without being given the guidance to get you there?

What if you’re expected to lead others without ever being shown how to be a leader?

This “training gap” can get frustrating and stressful — which doesn’t do you, your family or your employer any good.

Whether you’re working in a non-profit, a small organization, or a large corporation without a learning and development department, we can help you “fill the gap” and get the skills you need to improve your situation.

The GPC Academy’s Double Your Effectiveness at Work” teaches you how to:


Develop productive work/life habits that protect your overall well-being and create a balance in your life.


Apply prioritization strategies to effectively manage workload and help you feel less overloaded.


Optimize time in meetings, so you’re not wasting valuable time that can be spent more productively doing other things.
