What we do extends beyond the typical definition of a consultancy. We are practitioners, a business built to share the culture transformation of our parent company, Barry-Wehmiller, and CEO Bob Chapman, with businesses around the world. Chapman & Co. connects our leadership training, assessments, and workshops with you, the people within organizations around the world that care about their corporate culture. Virtually.

Benefits of Virtual
During a time when it’s essential to maximize training budgets and reduce instruction time, virtual training provides a scalable, less costly and effective way to ensure leaders have the skills they need right now. While the working world is collectively re-imagining how to serve customers and deliver value, we also lead teams who must remain resilient and quickly adapt to face what’s needed right now.
Leadership Topics and Technical Tracks
Organizations often promote the best doers into the position of leadership. We don’t always acknowledge that their job has fundamentally changed. In addition to being the expert, you are now asking them to build new experts. For established leaders or the newly promoted, our leadership development courses provide the training that enables people to succeed in the role of leadership. Paired with technical skill development in continuous improvement, customer service, strategy and decision making, our curriculum is available to mix and match for every role in your organization.
Fifty-eight percent of leaders promoted into the role do not receive any leadership development, even though their job has fundamentally changed. From aspiring leaders to C-Suite, our Virtual Classroom provides the necessary instruction, tools and training for leaders to be successful in their role. Our entire curriculum library is made available for all participants. While we encourage people to participate in any coursework that aligns with their role, courses are also specifically tailored for each leadership level and technical roles. Examples include:
- For aspiring leaders and the newly promoted: Listening, Feedback, How to Lead Meetings, Projects and Presentations, Difficult Conversations and How to Set Goals.
- For middle management: Building Effective Teams, Trust and High Performance, Strategic Communication and Leading Through Influence.
- For senior leaders, Strategic Planning, Building Culture, Emotional Intelligence and How to Define your Organization’s Purpose.
Throughout all development tracks, we emphasize the core competencies of communication skills, emotional intelligence, building trust and strategic thinking. Additionally, participants can engage in topical tracks on customer service, continuous improvement and inclusion.
If you would like your people to demonstrate different behaviors, the first step is teaching them how.
