     Did you know that when Fortune 500 companies want to improve employee performance they hire Behavior Analysts? In fact, there is an entire specialty in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, known as Performance Management, that applies behavioral principles to maximizing staff performance. Leadership is one of the critical aspects of achieving excellence from employees, colleagues and other individuals who work together for a cause. In addition to his other areas of expertise, Dr. David Garcia researched behavioral approaches to leadership and has developed an excellent training program on the topic which can be presented as either a half day or full day program. Of course, at BAI we practice what we preach, and as a result we have a very highly motivated staff who are satisfied with their jobs and are 100% focused on achieving important outcomes for the individuals we serve.
