Why you might like this job:

You’re tired of the fluff and ready to cut through the noise of most leadership and development programs. Problem is, you haven’t had an organization ready to support you as you go out on a limb and try something new. Insert Corporate Tools. We know in order to continue to be successful we need to continue to invest in our current and emerging leaders. And while some may use off-the-shelf programs, that’s not our style. We’re a unique organization that wants training built around our people and our culture that makes sense to us. Here’s where you come in. Being a former leader yourself, you’ve been there, done that, and know what it takes to develop and lead people. You’re passionate about seeing leaders grow and being apart of that growth. You take 100% responsibility if something sucks, scrap it, and start again.
