Training For Workforce and Human Services Professionals

While there are standard tools and strategies like assessments, training and supportive services, these approaches are often not enough.

What else can we do to help?

In order to support long term success, Monday Best can help you better understand how “poverty thinking” drives behavior. We can also teach you coaching skills to help you support your clients in recognizing their own “internal barriers” to success and in doing so, uncover the motivation to move forward.

By adding coaching skills to your toolkit, you can dramatically impact the lives of peoples from many walks of life as they navigate the world of work and accountability and self-sufficiency. Our training workshops are built on an evidence-based foundation of both cognitive behavioral theory and coaching techniques that have been proven effective in many social service settings. These programs can help your team support people with multiple challenges as they make the biggest lifestyle change in moving forward – getting and keeping a job!
