Leadership Development and Training

Current Open Classes | Customized Trainings

Organizations that invest in their supervisors and employees with leadership development and training reap the reward of healthier, more productive environments.

In fact, one survey of 2,000 individuals revealed that organizations offering professional development opportunities have employees who are 15 percent more engaged in their work. These same businesses also see 34 percent higher retention rates than those that don’t offer similar opportunities.

Samaritan Consulting Group’s leadership development trainers provide these desired opportunities to emerging leaders, current management and employees at Central Pennsylvania organizations.
