Relationship TRAINING

Given the rapid pace of change and complexities of today’s business environment, organizations must have competent, connected and consistent Relational Leaders throughout their enterprises. However, according to recent research, the best relationships are only working at 45% of their potential.  We help you create a foundation for making relationship development a true competency within your organization.


Recent studies have found that running first-time managers through a leadership development program offered a 29% ROI in the first three months. We help you build a custom Manager Training program to equip your team with the necessary skills and competencies to succeed in their current and future roles.

DEI & Culture

An Inclusive Leadership Culture begins with NEXT-Level leaders who are aware of their own biases and actively seek out and consider different perspectives.  A diverse workforce is 35% more likely to see greater financial returns than industry averages. Our DEI Road Maps positively impact your people, process and enterprise financial performance.

Leadership Training

For all levels of leaders – from brand new managers to C-Suite executives – leadership training offers a path toward expanding the capacity of your people to operate in the roles they currently possess, and the roles you hope they will grow into. AchieveNEXT’s Manager Training programs give managers the support they need to lead NEXT level teams.

Womens' Leadership

The primary goal of our Women’s Leadership programs is to empower women to become effective leaders and advance their careers.  Our programs can take many forms, including mentorship programs, workshops, conferences, networking events, and training sessions.  We aim to create a supportive environment where women can learn, network, and collaborate with other like-minded individuals. By participating in these programs, women can gain valuable insights, build their networks, and enhance their leadership capabilities.

Sales effectiveness

There is no doubt sales teams of all sizes, industries, and markets are adapting and strategically pivoting how they sell in the market of today. All sales leaders agree though, there is a strong connection between their sales professionals’ performance and the strength of their customer connections. However, according to recent research, the best customer relationships are working at less than 50% of their potential. We help sales teams focus on improved relationship skills including – listening, proactive problem solving, critical thinking, effective communication, and building trust — all to ensure customer relationships are strengthened and financial outcomes are achieved.

Divisional Vice President, Learning and Performance, Major US Luxury Goods Retailer

“The highest compliment that I can pay you is that every time we work together, I gain new insight that I can immediately apply to our business.”  

Vice President – Franchise Development, North American Franchisor

“You opened my eyes to being the best leader I can be.  Our work together resulted in more delegation to my key people, more support for them in areas where they are weak, and more focus on the goals and results we demand in our business.  There is no higher compliment I can pay than asking you to also work with our highest-potential leader.  Thanks again for your hard work and thought on our behalf.  We look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.”

Chief Operations Officer, Civil Contracting Firm

“I have been working with Jim Miller since my severance. I wanted to send a quick note to say how much I have appreciated Jim’s knowledge and support through this rather difficult/stressful time. Having never been through this type of event in my career, Jim’s encouraging and positive direction turned out to be exactly what I needed. I have just accepted an offer with another company and will start my new job on May 30. During the interview process for this new position I received multiple positive comments on the layout and content of my resume. I of course owe that to Jim’s coaching/suggestive input in helping me take my 5 page resume down to an acceptable 2 pages. Our weekly discussions and his advice on navigating interviews and questions around things like compensation were also right on point and proved to be extremely helpful.”
