Connect2Classes Offers Custom Group Classes for Businesses to Learn and Grow

Seattle Businesses Are Reinventing Team Training and Building

In a thriving economy like Seattle, businesses know they need to cultivate strong teams in order to maintain their competitive edge. As baseball player Babe Ruth famously said, “The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”

While standard professional development options can be too focused on individual learning, businesses now have the option of working with local educational providers to design the perfect group learning experience. Connect2Classes is leading the way with a flexible approach to group professional development and amazing team building activities.

Building custom class offerings has become one of Connect2Classes most requested services. “We’ve been champions of experiential learning for a long time,” says CEO Dallas Jasper. “We have literally hundreds of world-class instructors available to us on any topic you can imagine.”

Whether staff require technical training or are committed to regular team building events, any business can request a tailor-made learning experience that is relevant to their specific industry and needs.

One local real estate company contacted Connect2Classes to organize onsite software training for their employees. Another company decided to encourage team bonding through soap making, and yet another local business hired a chef instructor to run team-building culinary games during a special cocktail party.

The Washington Department of Labor and Industry also took advantage of custom training for their staff. In need of Java training, they found that Connect2Classes offered a class in Seattle for a good price. “It became evident quickly that the number of staff we needed to take this training was increasing,” says Crystal Hensen, Services Development Core Team Manager. “So I called Connect2Classes, who helped us get the training we needed delivered locally instead!”

They were provided with different instructor options to choose from, which allowed them to select the best instructor for the job. “All of the instructors met the qualifications we needed, and they also offered different scheduling options for meeting our needs,” Hensen says.

Do you have a team that could learn to gel better? Professional level courses in communication, people skills, and conflict navigation help everyone develop their team-working abilities. If developing creativity and innovative thinking are your goals, Connect2Classes also works with instructors from creative industries who are experts at guiding teams through the creative process.

Team building and morale events also get a boost from this creative approach. Groups can request cooking classes such as sushi making, cupcake baking, French cuisine, and chocolate creations, or outdoor activities like paddle boarding, hiking, and perfecting your batting average. There are also over-21 events like wine tasting, cocktail mixing, brewing, and adult beverages along with art or photography. Creative businesses can even opt for glassblowing, metalworking, or woodworking.

What does your team need to learn and love to do? Just let Connect2Classes know and they can suggest the perfect training or event, onsite or off.
