Learn how Springboards is helping these companies to develop and engage their multinational workforces…
“We chose Springboards because we liked their approach to assessment. In addition, a big win for our employees has been the targeted personal approach that each coach has taken with each employee. Managers of these employees have spontaneously said they've noticed improvement in written and spoken communication, as well as self-confidence. This allows employees to make a greater contribution to Shire, which in turn helps them further their careers here.”

“Confidence in English and professional communication was critical for the success of one of our top employees. As a recently promoted manager and a core part of our team, we really wanted to make an investment where it counted the most. Before partnering with Springboards, this employee froze up in phone conversations with our stakeholders and struggled at internal meetings—we knew there was a language issue. By offering proper support and development, we could fully engage this employee with the skills to succeed.
Today, she is communicating in high stakes settings with full confidence. Her ability to engage and lead has magnified after only 4 months of coaching with Springboards. When she does well, it helps the whole workplace—morale is stronger, performance is better. By investing in the success of this employee, we were truly able to invest in ourselves.”

"Springboards achieved real results with one of my key employees. Before their work, she was in danger of being eclipsed by other consultants from a variety of countries whose English writing was understandable and contained a manageable number of editing issues. In contrast, her writing needed multiple rounds of rework and editing to straighten out logic and remove layers of syntactical, grammatical, and spelling errors. This employee is brilliant – she got top grades and graduated with a Masters degree in Economics from one of the top universities in the US. However, her writing was not polished and showed she had learned bad habits. In about five months, Springboards was able to exceed my expectations with her written English by working with her on awareness and self-correction through personalized one-on-one coaching. Today, her written work reflects her underlying brilliance and creativity and has few and more easily correctable errors. As a result, her career potential at the firm has increased dramatically."

"After the training, my writing speed has improved significantly. I used to write a report in 5 days and now I can do it within 3 days. The training also improved my self-awareness during the writing and editing processes, therefore less editing is required for my writing work now."

“I’m glad we started our writing training early in the year. When we lost our writer a few months after, I needed to figure out how to do many news write ups independently. The task was challenging at first, but our coaching helped me pull it off!”

“My passion and excitement have become an asset, rather than a liability in my work and effectiveness as a result of these coaching sessions. I am very grateful to management for giving me the opportunities to learn invaluable communication skills. I strongly believe that these opportunities are great investments in my personal and professional growth and contributions to the Dallas office. I am very grateful to my trainer for her knowledge, professionalism, feedback, and sincere interest in my growth. I look forward to continuing to advance my communication skills through additional coaching and implementation in my daily work activities.”
The Institute for Economic Development and the Department of Economics have been working with Springboards for the past year. Nadia and her staff of professionals are top notch. Nadia, Professor Mookherjee and myself developed a customized writing workshop that targeted our students needs. The writing workshop instructor Leslie was very good, she had great enthusiasm and is a skilled instructor. Leslie and Nadia gave excellent feedback to our students during the one on one sessions. This year we are expending our work with Nadia and her staff to include a presentation workshop to help our graduate students with conference presentations and panel interviews for PhD students on the job market.
We at the Institute for Economic Development are glad we chose Springboards to assist our students with customized career development workshops!
