PDG doesn’t do everything—we do what matters to your business. We focus on Leadership Development, Onboarding, Managed Services, and Custom Solutions. That’s our toolbox. We’re experts in driving performance improvement through learning, and we’ve built our whole business model around that. Our goal is not to do everything; it’s to be the best at what we do.

We’re committed to great process, but we don’t get trapped by it. Great jazz musicians have incredible technical training, but they also know how to improvise. We feel the same way. Over the years, we have established remarkably reliable processes that we bring to every client partnership. But we also keep ourselves flexible, so that adherence to process doesn’t get in the way of achieving our clients’ goals.

We’ve built an organization that’s large enough to deal with your business needs anywhere in the world, and flexible enough to grow with you as your needs grow. But we’re small enough that each of our clients is a top priority and receives the focus and attention they need. We could have hundreds of clients, but we’d prefer to have a few great ones.

Successful businesses learn, improve, and grow.
The pace of change in today’s business world is breathtaking. Successful businesses are flexible and resilient, constantly learning about the world around them and adapting to the pace of change. Those that can’t adapt are left behind.

The pace of business doesn’t slow down so you can learn. That’s why everything PDG does focuses on integrating learning into the flow of business. Think of us as coaches running alongside you, observing what you do. We figure out what’s working and what needs to change. And we lend a hand when you need it.
