Message from ALR's Founder, Greg Stephens

"I’ve had the privilege of working with Crucial Learning™ (Formally Vital Smarts) since January 2001. During this time, I have grown personally and professionally, implementing, and teaching the skills their courses offer as well as helping thousands of participants do the same. Alignment Resources was conceived and developed not to compete, but to compliment and honor the foundational skills taught by Crucial Learning programs. If you’d like to learn more about Crucial Learning and their award-winning programs, we encourage you to visit their website and sign up for one of their offerings."

A lasting difference to the lives of our frontline workers.

"84% said poorly trained managers create unnecessary work and stress."  - SHRM: Society for Human Resource Management survey

"74% of surveyed employees feel they aren’t reaching full potential at work due to lack of development opportunities." - Lorman, Training Statistics for 2022

“Retention rates for mentees are 50% higher than those not mentored. In fact, mentoring can have a
much greater impact on retention than salary increases.” - Neal Goodman, Ph.D
