Leadership & Management Training

Building a Better Business through Better Leadership

Designed for HVAC contractors and techs that are starting their own businesses, as well as Office and General Managers that want to enhance their skills and create streamlined practices, Kathy Nielsen’s leadership training courses offer everything you need to know to grow as a leader. With more than two decades of experience in the service industry, Kathy understands what makes great business leaders. During the leadership and management training courses, she shares this knowledge, along with innovative solutions for Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) and consistent employee training.

Participants learn how to develop systems and grow leaders in their companies through:

  • Building accuracy through consistency
  • Enacting training processes that put the right people in the right positions
  • Putting SOPs into writing to ensure that operations continue as normal, no matter what
  • Identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities
  • Looking at company culture through different perspectives—and improving it
  • Streamlining and standardizing the hiring process
  • Conducting thorough training on software and other systems

Kathy’s various speaking engagements for managers and leaders cover everything from hiring and retaining Millennials to improving company culture and creating a workplace that people seek out, rather than having to see out people to hire. She also helps leaders pinpoint weaknesses in their businesses—and find insightful, personalized solutions to address and resolve those weaknesses. Her “Hit by a Truck” session allows leaders to understand the importance of written SOPs and provides them with the tools to enact them, regardless of whether their business is residential, commercial, or both.

You Are Only as Good as You Are Willing to Be

In her leadership and management training courses, as well as in all of her business development consulting services, Kathy strives to help individuals and companies find strategies that take them to the next level. She provides the tools, resources, and insights you need to improve day-to-day operations and grow leaders within your company.

In addition to her extensive personal experience, Kathy is certified in assessments with Results Group for Leadership, Team, and Individual Development, including creating hiring processes and tools to get the right people in the right positions in your company—and keep them! Her unique perspective allows her to offer something that many other consultants and trainers don’t have: firsthand service industry experience at nearly every level.
