Empowering People to Succeed

Helping others unlock their true potential for over 20 Years.

Twenty Years of Leadership Skills Training

CEO and Founder, Bridgitt Haarsgaard, built her consulting team with industry experts who share her value of empowering individuals to grow personally and professionally through knowledge. Together they create high-impact corporate training programs that teach essential workplace skills and practical corporate know-how through a method that builds confidence through practice and self-awareness.

Bridgitt Haarsgaard assembled The GAARD Group, a consulting team of top executive coaches and expert corporate training facilitators, to design and deliver custom corporate leadership training programs for Fortune 500 companies around the globe. 

The GAARD Group shares a passion for helping others achieve their goals. Their collective education, experience, and insight have led them to become a world-class corporate leadership training company known globally for its innovative, effective teaching methods. They have had the honor of working with companies such as American Express, HBO, Goldman Sachs, Sony, New York Life, and Columbia University to name a few.

Built around a value of personal development, the secret to The GAARD Group’s continued success is their unique, person-first GAARD Method. This innovative five-step method takes business skill development from informative to transformative by using psychological best practices as a framework for personalized learning experiences.

With the new online learning platform launch, GAARD’s transformative, professional skills courses are available 24/7 across any device to any business or individual interested in investing in professional skills development. This online option will give individuals and organizations everywhere access to the same life-changing strategies that we share with our Fortune 500 clients.

The GAARD Library features courses that help today’s leaders motivate and communicate more effectively with their teams. Each course offers opportunities for current and future leaders to hone the essential professional skills necessary to make their way along their chosen paths to success.

Through online video courses, thoughtful corporations of every size who need an affordable, scalable, and accessible professional development solution will have the ability to build plans that work for their unique needs. And, individuals, ready to unlock their true potential, can start learning new essential skills and putting them immediately into action.

This training was incredibly valuable in that it challenged the manner in which we interact at a professional and personal level. Communication is an aspect of life that many assume will come naturally, but often it takes effort and practice to master. Bridgitt was fantastic, and she allowed us to reframe how we communicate to ensure more effectiveness and precision with the subject matter. I would encourage all professionals with a desire to challenge themselves and grow to take the class because you will definitely come out better for it.
