Brian Tracy

Do you need to become better at what you do in the homebuilding industry?

Do you want to learn more so you can earn more? If you do, you came to the right place. 

We are here to help you.

“Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.”

Denis Waitley

Our courses cover building codes, construction best practices, and sustainability. We teach what we know how to do, building better homes and training people.

We apply evidence-based practices to help you learn. Why should you care about that? Because we teach you how to think differently, intensively, and critically.

“It really doesn’t matter how long. If you practice with your body, no amount is enough. If you practice with your head, two hours is plenty.”

K. Anders Ericsson

Does your company need to improve profitability and productivity?

What did a study by the American Society for Training Development (ASTD) find? An increase of only $680 in a company’s training expenditure per employee generated an average 6% increase in total shareholder return the following year.

What else did that study reveal?

Are you interested in profitability? The companies in the top quarter of the study group had 24% higher profit margins!

What about income per employee? The companies in the top quarter of the study group had 218% higher income per employee!

That’s why you should invest in your people.

“What if I invest in my people and they leave to work for my competitor?”

What if you don’t invest and they stay?

You may think you don’t have the money to invest in training and development.

If you don’t invest in your people, you limit your only sustainable competitive advantage in the marketplace.
