Hi. We’re The People Piece

We’re the people and team development partner for values-driven organizations.

You care deeply about people and their success. You’re looking for development programs that fit with your culture and lead to real and lasting impact. You can’t afford out-of-touch trainers, impractical content, or day-longs that don’t change anything. The people at your company expect more, and don’t have time for less.

At The People Piece, we take your success seriously. We take our time to get to know you, and then design and deliver customized programs that focus on developing high-impact, collaborative cultures that drive long term success for your business.

Since 2011, we’ve helped companies like Intuit, Whole Foods, Pinterest, and Carollo Engineers to develop their leaders, managers, employees, and teams. They’ve trusted us because of our depth of experience, customization expertise, ability to engage learners, and commitment to being supportive partners.

We’re proud to put this catalog of our offerings in front of you. Whether you know exactly where to start or would like help sorting through the many options, get in touch. We’d love to connect and explore what’s possible.

Cheers,

Roni, Jess, and The People Piece Team
