The key components of Move Up or On:

MOTIVATION - Some of the best work is a result of INSPIRED ACTION and this segment focuses in re-awakening people. We have all seen and possible experience the the fading of an engaged, motivated team member. Loss of engagement, burnt out are very common. But how do you reawaken them? This program uses real life examples of high performers, focusing on their unique stories and unlikely paths to success, to inspire and motivate people to think about their life and work differently and showing them what's possible in their career.  Participants come out of this segment seeing what's possible and thinking, "if they did, then I can."

NEW SKILLS - After people get excited about what's possible the next step is to bring energy into focus. This section focuses on what's working and what's not and introduces a series of actions to take and practices to put in place that will get results. This segment also addresses the importance of attitude and beliefs and how to manage them to determine outcomes.

GOALS AND PLAN - Participants leave with clear goals, a plan to address obstacles and with the commitment to take 100% responsibility,

CK Consulting provides training, a tool kit and plan for high performers in a stalled career to Move Up or On.



CONFIDENCE: motivation and performance start to decline when people can’t leverage their best skills. Identifying peoples’ core genius and pairing it with clarity and meaningful goals reignites enthusiasm.


CLARITY: what do you want to do? Who do you want to do it for? Where do you want to do it? Help managers find their vision, get clear on goals and move forward with purpose.


FOCUS: amid the noise and on a shifting landscape, the ability to progress toward goals, and not waiver.



Does your team need motivation, tools for success, a boost in confidence and esteem?



People do the best they can with the knowledge, skills and abilities they have. Just as there are principles that guide science and rules that dictate language usage, there are simple, applicable principles and rules for great success. And no matter who you are, if you apply them, they work. This training teaches participants exceptional success and performance using entertaining, inspirational examples and interactive exercises that people can relate to.



Success Factor Training teaches people the mindsets and behaviors of leaders and high performers


Success Factor Training teaches people the mindsets and behaviors of leaders and high performers (and the behavior of average or below average performers that keep them from advancing). One distinguishing characteristic of peak performers is high self-esteem and confidence; this training invests in raising individual's esteem and confidence, combined with teaching world class success principles, creating a foundation for high performance.



The Success Factor for Millennials


Customized to the unique demands of Millennials to help them transition successfully from academic to professional environments, while developing the habits and mindsets of high performers and taking 100% responsibility for success in their career.


Academic success and success in career and life are different and require different skillsets.  This workshop gives participants skills to communicate, work with and learn from existing generations in the workforce and gives them a toolkit enabling them to be results-driven high and maintain balance and meaning in life.
