Our Story

Launched in February 2020, WNY People Development provides virtual and in-person development for leaders at all levels and organizations of all sizes. We provide highly engaging, interactive, and customizable experiences. We are not “trainers”. we are facilitators of information that guide leaders through the development process utilizing adult learning theory, practical application, data, reflection, honest conversations, and fun.
We don’t provide a “one size fits all” corporate training program, because we do not believe leadership is “one size fits all”. We pride ourselves in connecting and inspiring leaders and work teams through real, authentic dialogue, centered around the question “why not you?”

We partner with clients to develop relevant, impactful, and skill-building training options for employees. We create programs that drive improved culture and morale, build competencies, engage teams, and propel impactful success and growth.
