Duke PPDP believes people are the greatest resource and asset in any organization. In today’s demanding work environment, organizations (e.g., healthcare and corporate work cultures) are most successful when their professionals have the skills to both manage appropriately the technical demands of their job, and excel in interacting with others, whether patient, family members, external customers, superiors, cross functional teams, subordinates, or co-workers. A professional who is able to manage the challenges of his/her work relationships along with personal and family life effectively will be able to devote more energy towards meeting the needs of the organization.

All the programs and services offered throughout our website have been researched and designed by Dr. Holder over the years in providing coaching, consultation, workshops and trainings to an array of clientele.
