Center for Professional & Executive Development Announces Partnership with Human Synergistics

Madison, Wis. – The Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED) and Human Synergistics InternationalTM have joined together to enhance the effectiveness of organizations by providing leaders with resources to develop Constructive cultures. The partnership combines Human Synergistics’ 40 years of culture research, leveraging the Organizational Culture Inventory® and other breakthrough assessments, with CPED’s decades of experience in creating and delivering professional development and executive education programs.

“We are very excited about this new partnership. In the classroom and at business locations, we will use Human Synergistics assessments to provide individual managers and leaders with new development insights, teams with breakthroughs, and leaders and leadership teams with the insight and direction to improve their organizations’ effectiveness,” said Steve King, executive director of CPED. “The Human Synergistics tools are some of the most well-researched and widely used instruments available, and we have integrated them into our coursework and consulting in ways that enrich and enhance learning, development, and business outcomes.”

Lifelong learning and evidence-based research is at the core of both organizations. CPED strives to improve performance and productivity for individuals, teams, and organizations in the areas of leadership, business analysis, supply chain, project management, and business process improvement. Human Synergistics specializes in developing and providing tools, information, and change strategies that enable individuals to reach their potential, groups to realize synergy, and organizations to achieve sustainability.
