Action Seminars

We customize your event and integrate your most important corporate themes and messaging.

We can deliver all Action Seminar events virtually via video conference or in person. 

GDI Action Seminars are the result of years of research into the way that people learn best. Our programs infuse experiential learning as a way to bring content to life and allow participants to fully integrate the learning. These seminars are the perfect complement to your organizational development or corporate advance. Many of our seminars are offered in conjunction with an assessment tool to highlight personal and professional development and improve human interaction dynamics. Check out this video which overviews a Grand Dynamics National Leadership Training program which involved a series of customized action seminars. We call it a Culture Infusion.
