You're IT Briason Associates!
Three questions with Sonji Phillips of Briason Associates.
Why did you start your business?
Dr. Phillips started Briason Associates LLC in response to a recognized need for quality caregiver training and support for individuals with developmental disabilities. Her passion, expertise in the field, and desire to make a positive impact played crucial roles in shaping the mission and vision of the business.
By providing a range of services, Briason Associates LLC aimed to empower parents, caregivers, and organizations to provide a high quality of life for employees, caregivers, and stakeholders alike. Briason Associates has since extended its services to all organizations, companies, and the community at large.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Briason Associates' best-selling service is its comprehensive training program designed to enhance the productivity and effectiveness of employees within organizations. Specifically, the leadership training series stands out as the top-selling offering. This series equips employers with the knowledge, skills, and strategies necessary to cultivate strong leadership qualities among their workforce, ultimately leading to improved performance and organizational success.
With a focus on enhancing leadership capabilities, this sought-after service has garnered significant acclaim and continues to be a valuable resource for companies seeking to maximize their team's potential.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
Yes, Briason Associates has successfully embraced the concept of reimagining its small business. Through an annual retreat for employees, the company has created a platform to envision its future and explore innovative possibilities. During these retreats, Briason has actively reimagined its strategic planning and development processes, identifying areas for growth and improvement.
By recognizing the potential of addressing employee workforce training needs across the East Coast and unlocking opportunities in the Midwest, Briason has taken significant steps towards expanding its reach and impact. This commitment to reimagination has positioned the company to elevate its services and pursue new horizons, ensuring a dynamic and progressive future.
