8 elements, a Phoenix-based learning and development company, today announces new corporate training programs to build and develop effective company leaders.

8 elements is launching ‘TEAMPOWER®’ this month to companies and organizations. ‘TEAMPOWER®’ is a 2-3 day experience in team dynamics, team effectiveness, and leadership development. In the workshop, team participants will learn practical skills and develop critical behaviors for dealing with work issues generally faced by teams. Participants are engaged throughout the process and emerge from the learning experience with a fresh sense of direction, a keen understanding of how to share and provide leadership, practical strategies for working effectively together, and a strong commitment to continuously improve team performance.

Culminating from a strategic affiliate partnership with HRDQ®, a leading developer of training resources, these programs will launch initially under the ‘TEAMPOWER®’ banner on the 8 elements web site. Companies can set up "in-house" train-the-trainer certifications with 8 elements and deliver the programs throughout their organizations using their own training staffs in a very cost-effective manner, or 8 elements can deliver the programs "on-site" through their own team of facilitators.

“Our partnership with HRDQ® is enabling 8 elements to bring a wider array of developmental training programs to companies and organizations,” said 8 elements’ CEO Jane Andersen. “More than ever in this vastly competitive job market, companies need to recognize employees’ career needs and goals, and assimilate those individual goals into the corporate goals for a true win-win. Targeted training and development opportunities can help companies retain their "best" talent and increase profitability.”

Jane Andersen and her husband Al Andersen are also the team behind Phoenix's Pinkedin Job Networking Party, owners of Compass Consulting Team & hosts of a new Web radio show “Career Launch…With Jane and Al”, heard live every Monday at 8 AM on the VoiceAmerica Channel.
