    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Strong commitment to leadership development for all employees.
    Opportunity to contribute to transformative work.
    Small company with a global footprint.
    Great environment for creative self starters.

    Cons

    If you just want a job where someone will tell you what to do al the time, this place is not for you.
    Benefits are nothing to write home about. ..although the opportunity to attend CTI's programs at no charge is a big plus.
    Culture in in a state of transition. You will be expected to contribute and to do you part in generating a positive work environment. Nobody else is going to "do it for you."

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes your desire to see the best in people has you miss things. Look deeper.

    I have been working at Coaches Training Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I"m a little mystified by recent comments. I've worked here for several years and find the owners to be amongst the most generous people I know.

    Terrific programs available to all employees
    Commitment to changing the way people work

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment due to recent technology implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going. You are on the right track.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Coaches Training Institute full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing products and potential within the industry to grow much larger. Flexibility in scheduling (which also is a fault for how they manage it though).

    Cons

    No sense for scalability, modern technology, team work, business sense or budgeting. Contractors (course leaders) take full advantage of the poor accounting and scheduling which leads them to have the philosophy of "making easy money." For what they talk about in their books and courses, seems to some how be blocked from within their company. Practice what you preach...

    Advice to Management

    Make business decisions based on the future and success for your company, rather than the sole benefit of the owner's personal agendas and pocketbook. My assessment of upper management is like a dysfunctional family trying to run the company while having the atmosphere of high school drama.

    I worked at Coaches Training Institute full-time

    Pros

    Free coach training that is best in the business, small company, a good amount of transparency, staff is friendly, fun and supportive. The training is the best I've seen or experienced. It brings leaders and coaches to a whole new level. The contracted coaches that deliver the training are some of the most qualified and amazing individuals I have ever had the opportunity to worked with.

    Cons

    Very low pay, no benefits( they are offered, but are expensive for the employee and in my research no cheaper than purchasing on your own), outdated software, high expectation for results, although no resources are provided to make those results possible. Sales processes are years behind other companies. Promotions are given based on personality rather than qualifications, which has stunted growth and proper direction for the company. A genuine lack of good communication and understanding, with no support system set up by upper management. No room for growth. It's a job, not a career.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people the way you train organizations to treat their people. Hire qualified proven individuals for high level positions. Be the change you want to see in the world.

    Pros

    The leaders and staff are committed to their work and have an amazing heart and passion that shows in their dealings with clients.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between the hearts and minds of the senior management. They ask for a lot of their people but do not genuinely acknowledge or care for them.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions as if you were the people being affected.

    I worked at Coaches Training Institute (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Coach Training courses they offer are great.

    Cons

    There is no employee development plan in place. Tagline "changing business, transforming lives," applies to the outside world, not at the work place. Not walking their talk.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are a company's greatest asset. Walking your talk is crucial to success.
