About Us

PeopleTek Graduation

PeopleTek was founded on the belief that within all of us are the traits and characteristics required of successful leaders. Since 1996 our team of professional business development coaches has worked side by side with a diverse group of companies nationwide to uncover the dynamic makeup of individuals and teams. Our unique individual and team leadership development programs, called Journeys, inspire leaders of all levels to be confident and attain greater results.

While studies prove that effective coaching methods improve the bottom line of businesses, our philosophy and mission at PeopleTek is to also improve people–the way they relate to one another, work together, and enhance one another’s performance. Through the medium of leadership coaching, our clients receive focused attention from our professional business development specialists to achieve maximum results. We coach individuals, teams, and organizations in many areas. The PeopleTek management team includes professionally certified coaches with backgrounds from leading companies such as American Express.

PeopleTek has the tools, such as Everything DISC products and Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, to meet your individual and team needs.

Testimonials For PeopleTek

  • For me the Journey was a great exercise in self awareness. Through the multiple assessments it allowed me to see not only more of who I am, but also how I am perceived by others. I have encouraged several others on my team to attend and the experience has been great for them, as well as for all of us to learn to work better as a team.

  • Peopletek has been instrumental in helping us build our management and leadership skills. They have been able to get our company leaders to take the time to build skills and achieve goals and helped create a roadmap that can both guide us and keep us on the path we have chosen.

    Steven P. Communication Corporation of America
  • This has been time and money well spent on my team. This is coming back in payoffs multiple times to me. I have noticed positive changes in how my team interacts, and there is more open dialog and trust. We are truly able to do more and with better quality than before. I also have much stronger peer relationships resulting in collaboration.

  • Leadership Journeys/Individual Development

    The Journey Program is not a class. It’s a process. We believe that learning takes place over time instead of at a one-time event. That is why we developed a 12 session Leadership Journey.

    Uncover how you communicate

    Empower you with the methods to be most effective in communicating and working with individuals or group of people

    Build critical competencies and raise your peak performance level

    The Power of Teamwork
  • HR Services

    PeopleTek’s Career and Job Search Coaching program will help you find direction, market yourself, uncover opportunities,
    Finding Direction. Our coaches can help you clarify your chief inner strengths, most marketable skills, most innovative solutions, and deepest career passions to pave the way to a clear plan for your career.
    Marketing Yourself. One of the key challenges in landing a new position involves learning how to market oneself. Knowing the best ways to present and highlight one’s background takes years of know-how and corporate experience.
    Uncovering Opportunities. Once the resume has been perfected, the next critical part of a successful job search involves knowing how to uncover the right opportunities. While many people are familiar with the concept of “networking,” few are exceptional in networking for the long-term in a way that brings significant results.
    Interviewing with Confidence.
