The Ascent Professional Development Immersion program teaches motivated employees the interpersonal skills they need to thrive in the modern workplace. Investing in employees’ soft skills leads to better financial, professional, and personal outcomes for employees and companies alike. Ascent PDI focuses on developing employee self-esteem and confidence, lifelong learning and metacognition, personal and professional core values, and literacy in business culture. The result? Professional employees who are less likely to engage in workplace conflict, turnover, and absenteeism and who are more motivated and successful in their jobs. Based on 20 years of research and workforce development experience, the Ascent PDI curriculum is driven by the Langer Workforce Maturity Arc (LWMA). This tool is designed to measure an individual’s readiness to successfully assimilate into the corporate workforce. With a curriculum driven by the LWMA, Ascent PDI gives employees from diverse backgrounds the tools they need to flourish and prosper in your company. Program participants learn actionable skills to help them become better professionals, better students, and ultimately, better people.
