SEI University

What Does a Third-Party Hardware Maintenance Company Know About Training?

Quite a lot actually. At SEI, we feel that leadership and professional development are key for any business to continue to grow and excel.

Here at SEI, we have implemented our SEI University, a learning management system, that has enhanced the skills of our own employees by developing and delivering a wide variety of leadership, technical, job specific training and performance solutions. Based on our own internal success, we wanted to share these opportunities with others and help them to grow as we have.

SEI’s training begins with analyzing business needs and identifying the actual skills required to influence the business. Our certified training professionals look at the business need and implements the solution that will best close any identified performance gaps.

From there, a leadership or professional development courses is developed and delivered by webinar or a classroom based seminar. These trainings are optimal for managers, leaders, team leaders, human resource professionals and training teams.

Current Training Options – How Can We Help You?

Goal Setting Webinar

Writing down goals makes people more intentional about achieving them. Mastering goal setting will enable employees to have a greater impact on their own lives as well as your company’s overall performance. This course is designed to provide the learner with the knowledge and skills required to identify and document goals, as well as to create action plans to have a positive impact on their ability to achieve their personal, professional, and financial goals.

Time Management

Effective time management is difficult to master.  During this webinar the learner will identify tools to assist with managing their time more effectively. These tools and strategies will also help to prioritize and schedule your day to ensure your time is being spent on the most important items to get the biggest results for your business and your life.

Coaching: The SEI Way Workshop

Essentially, coaching is about one person helping another to excel. It is an equal partnership, where the person being coached sets the agenda, and the coach helps them find the best way to reach their goals. Coaching isn’t about giving advice or telling someone what to do. A good coach will present more questions than answers, and challenge the person being coached to consider new perspectives and different approaches when working towards their goals. This course is intended to grow your coaching skills to enable you to be a facilitator of coaching sessions, who will help others discover their own path to success.
