"To Your Success" ~Mary Ricketts-President & CEO
Turning Point Training and Development provides a conduit to business success through training, coaching, and customized employee development plans. We specialize in communication, leadership, time management, diversity and inclusion, team building, and organizational success. Our topic categories include Administrative Skills, Career Development, Human Resources, Career Development, Personal Development, Sales and Marketing, Supervisors and Managers, and Workplace Essentials.
Our learning plans help everyone from individual contributors to executives with result-driven tools to combat issues related to productivity, talent acquisition and retention, leadership decisions, change management, conflict resolution, and employee engagement. Through a collection of experienced trainers, we provide a range of virtual and in-person training events that can be reinforced with on-line training resources to ensure you have the tools needed for the results you want.
Our CEO and founder, Mary Ricketts, began her leadership path in 1990 in the telecommunications industry. Her natural coaching and leadership abilities led her to increased leadership responsibilities in the telecommunications space, and eventually into insurance and financial wellness. Partnering with John Maxwell's team helped her sharpen her training and development abilities. Turning Point Training and Development was founded in 2019 in response to requests from community partners that were needing a professional and experienced resource to ensure organizational success. We utilize a variety of trainers who are subject matter experts in their respective fields.
Our experience with adult education and relevant training is the core of what we’ve built our business upon. Each employee and trainer brings experience evaluating, leading, and training personnel. Our collective experience involves training teams from nonprofit organizations, community-based groups, small businesses, and businesses that show up on Fortune 500 lists. In addition to private organizations, we have worked with all levels of local, state, and federal government organizations, along with all branches of the military. Our ability to be industry agnostic allows us to cross-pollinate best practices and customize our training to each organization’s needs.
We are committed to organizational success, and recognize the value of healthy communities. This commitment inspires each of our staff to work heavily in their respective areas of passion as community advocates and leaders, tackling tough issues surrounding population groups that are often disenfranchised. As a women & minority-led organization, we are committed to equity and inclusion of all people, and understand that tackling foundational societal issues are part of building healthier communities and businesses.
We love meeting new professionals, so feel free to connect with us during normal business hours.
