Staff Development & Training

Virtual Employee Engagement Activity


- I partner with YOU in planning and delivering effective and impactful facilitation, professional, staff development, and training-

The definition of 'facilitation' is to make easier; to assist. I’m told that I have a gentle and grounded way in moving processes, programming, and people forward in my staff development and training courses.

For me, 'growth' is a huge dopamine hit!



Looking for adult programing that participants love?

Oranda's Teaching & Learning Design strategies = engaged employees that retain and implement new information and learning.  

I partner with content experts and instructional designers to produce customized training from small and large groups.

I outline, write, script, and produce learning opportunities that incorporate strategies and activities that adult learners love. 

Since 2000, I have trained over 10K adult learners and 100% VALUE Oranda's Teaching & Learning Designs. 

Here's what other's are saying. 

Contact me to write and produce the copy and experience of your online, hybrid or in-person trainings.


Playbooks - Journals - Workbooks

Support your audience in implementing new learning.

I work with self-help authors and educators to create playbooks, journals or workbooks to complement their content. 

The results: reflection and implementation of new learning!

Contact me to write and produce copy that will help your teaching come alive in others.


Team Building - Staff Development & Training - Employee Resource Groups - Professional Circles - Communities of Practice

Bring out the best in your people! 

I lead and facilitate diverse groups of staff to address our human needs and the whole person in the work environment. 

The results:  connection, increased resilience, improved sense of community, collaboration, performance, retention and job satisfaction.

Reach Your Goals with the START Process

In partnership with Laurie Bodine's START Leadership, I created Online Courses for Individuals and Educators to reach their personal and professional goals.

The START process is successful because it STARTS with you - your values and your strengths - to develop and outline strategies to successfully reach your goals. In these ways,  START Leadership is clearly the smarter way to reach your goals.

The results are personally and professionally transformational.
