At Dulye & Co., we are passionate about helping our clients achieve their business goals through a Spectator-Free Workplace. We are also driven to make a difference in our community. That's why we've always been active in giving a voice to the voiceless through our proud support of animal shelters and rescue organizations. Beyond our generous financial support, we provide counsel on ways to use communications to increase public awareness and support of their noble causes.
We believe in giving back. We're proud to do so.
We are proud to support these special organizations:
For nine years conducted in partnership with Syracuse University, the Dulye Leadership Experience (DLE) inspired personal and professional growth in undergraduates preparing to get jobs and start careers. More than 140 undergraduates completed its reality-based training, gaining critical skills, self-awareness, confidence and networks for successfully transitioning from student to new hire.
Now, in its 10th anniversary year in 2017, the DLE focus shifts to high achieving, young professionals-- actively engaged in the workplace—with the introduction of DLE: Gen Now/Career Strategies for Soaring.
The new Leadership Retreat provides personal coaching, concrete solutions and practical strategies for advancing careers amidst a current of rapid change. Training aims to close the skills gap increasingly cited by today’s employers. Presentations, interactive panels and break-out sessions provide practical techniques and tools for:
- staying relevant and adding value
- transitioning from individual contributor to manager
- motivating diverse teams
- building an inclusive environment
- planning career moves
- sharpening negotiation skills
- broadening professional networks
- making smart investments
- achieving financial independence.
Additionally, attendees expand their professional network by making connections with speakers and attendees.
