our Story

Our story began before we created “The PEAR.” Kris and I worked for a large government agency as Peace Officers and trainers. We accepted our responsibilities training a law enforcement agency within a social services department.  This training extended to both sworn and non-sworn employees in the department.

It was the late 90’s and our department had just created a training program for sworn investigators. Kris and I were two of a few chosen to be members of the training team. It was through this assignment that Kris and I met Dr. George Thompson, President and Founder of the Verbal Judo Institute. Doc Thompson was our mentor, our friend. He affectionately referred to us as his “River Dogs.” Doc Thompson instilled in us the importance of being the “Contact Professional” regardless of our title or our job duties. While Doc Thompson passed away in 2011, his words continue to inspire us as we train others across the public and private sectors.

A few years into our training gig, our department was experiencing an abnormal amount of customer complaints. Kris and I were asked to provide customer service training to department employees. In less than six months, we traveled around our county teaching over 2,000 public service employees how to maintain a professional state of mind when dealing with persons who are in crisis (emotional, mental, etc.). We received amazing reviews and as the word traveled of our training program, so was the seed planted for “The PEAR.”

We continue to provide a variety of training courses with an emphasis on self-assessment, effective communication, and professionalism. Additionally, our courses are intended to pair each individual with their full potential. We also recognize the need for organizational success therefore; we offer several courses that focus on organizational development. Please see a list of courses under the tab, “Training Courses” or allow us to create a specialized course that meets your specific needs!
