LIFT PhD Service Offerings

LIFT PhD provides a variety of ways for your organization to get the help, guidance and assistance it needs.


LIFT conversations are calls of 60 minutes or less on a particular topic with a professor. The calls are designed to help your team in short bursts – learning, testing hypotheses, getting advice and feedback, or simply seeking outside perspective. Submit a request, get matched to a few professors, and select one or more to talk with – conversations are that easy.


Consulting engagements involve dedicated time and help from a LIFT professor to assist your company with a challenge it faces. Consulting might entail several days of research and data analysis, review and feedback on corporate materials, audits and recommendations of company practices, or facilitated decision-making sessions. Consulting engagements begin with one or more conversations, but also rely on custom proposals to help you address a specific objective or challenge.

These learning events range from less than a day to multiple days, and can be either custom designed or come from an existing catalog of workshops – it all depends on your needs. LIFT PhD professors are expert in designing curriculum to satisfy your goals. They are also expert at making concepts come alive via interaction and application – often directly to your business. The potential for learning is both broad and deep with LIFT PhD, providing your team a tremendous opportunity for capability development. See all the workshops we offer here.

icon-services_webinarsCustom Webinars

Unlike the vast numbers of free webinars whose primary purpose is selling, our customized webinars are built for your team’s specific needs. Our webinars are up to 90 minutes in length (including the Q&A) and are designed and delivered by an expert in the field – a PhD whose sole purpose is centered on teaching business leaders. As with consulting and executive education, LIFT PhD helps match your challenge to a specific professor. You get the content you need, delivered by an expert with no fluff, and all in a very efficient way for teaching large segments of your organization.
