Business & Administration (see also Therapy & Counselling)

  • Cohesive Corporate Team GrowthPeople work better together when they are of one mind and in community. They cannot do that unless they truly understand one another; can break down the barriers and develop a loving trust. When we do our team growing development, we go outside the normal “team building” and focus on growing the entire community within your Agency or Department. It comes from a holistic perspective and is fun for all involved. Learn to have your staff think outside the box by developing and accomplish- ing more with less. People will learn better stress management and communication techniques as well as a better understanding of one another. I, Sheila, have received the following trainings which I rely on: Rural Leadership Development, Conflict Management and Confrontational Skills, How to Supervise People, Employee Discharge and Discrimination, Sexual Harassment and Anti-Discrimination, Supervisory Effectiveness Training, Team Building, and Emotional Intelligence.

  • River’Rangements  – Master Gardener Debbie Bailey has been growing, hand-picking, and arranging her own flowers locally since 1988. From the first seeds of spring to the last twist of ribbon on the bouquet, the colors that inspired the Hudson River painters are captured in the hues of each season. In the valley where the Victorian charm of Saratoga County meets the rolling fields and farms of Washington County, our gardens sit on the banks of the peaceful Hudson River, beside waters that flow from high in the Adirondack Mountains. This is where the earth, the rain, and the sunlight are nature’s canvas. This is where the vibrant colors, soft textures, and delicate perfumes come together to become a splash of natural beauty.  –

Therapy & Counseling

  • Career Success –  It is important to have a career that is based on you interests and that matches your personality and values. It is equally important to have work of your choice when you are prepared for it or have finished your education. It is a fact that most people do not get work doing what they trained for. A major reason for this is poor planning. The disappointment is great after spending 2,4,6 years or a lifetime preparing for a career and then not being able to do what you prepared for and possibly face the prospect of loans to repay after already investing large amounts of time and money. Spending a small amount of time and money now, before you invest large amounts of time and money, can pay off for you in a big way. We have the tools, knowledge, education and experience to help you advance who you are into a successful direction. Whether you are just starting your career path or want to transition to a new path we can help you move forward in a more confident manner toward a goal oriented for real success. Career Success will take 20% in Adirondack Bucks and additionally give a 15% discount to Adirondack Cooperative Economy members.
